ALM: Introduction to point-of-care ultrasound for GPs

Next course

Venue: GP18, Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Gold Coast QLD

More information and registration

The ‘Introduction to point-of-care ultrasound for GPs’ Active Learning Module (ALM) was developed in 2016 in response to demand from GPs and rural and remote communities whose GPs use point-of-care ultrasound procedures as additional diagnostic tools. 

The ALM is designed to support GPs to increase their understanding of the applications of point-of-care ultrasound in the diagnostic process. The training is delivered by rural GPs and sonographers who are experienced in using ultrasound in their practice environment. 

This full-day ALM will give general practice registrars and GP’s the opportunity to identify practical applications of ultrasound technology in general practice settings and utilise point of care ultrasound devices under the guidance of expert sonographers. 

  • Approved for all RPGP grant categories
  • Approved for RACGP QI&CPD 40 Category 1 points

Feedback from participants has been very positive with GPs indicating that the workshop significantly increased their confidence in using ultrasound: 

‘The workshop was fantastic and … I am confident in using ultrasound in a rural emergency department setting for wider medical and acute presentations’. 

‘I believe I have achieved what I set out to achieve from this learning activity. I will now be able to apply the knowledge gained in everyday clinical settings to improve my practice and hopefully improve clinical outcomes’.

Melbourne (Victoria) – 17 February 2018

Darwin (Northern Territory) – 3 March 2018
