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

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

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

The ALM is very hands-on and 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 GPs 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: 

This is amazing and I hope to see more of it. Thank you very much to all concerned, particularly mix of sonographers and clinicians with primary care focus was really, really good. They were local so now we have more connections in our own workforce!!”

 ‘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’.
