Think GP Asthma Education
We have partnered with Reed Medical Education to create free accredited asthma education for GP’s and other health professionals via Think GP
Available on Think GP is the Asthma in Australia: Practical Solutions for challenges in primary care Accredited Learning Module (ALM).
There are six modules which are available as one Accredited Learning Module (ALM) and six individual modules, covering:
- Introduction: Asthma basics
- Partnering with your patients
- Adjusting treatment and encouraging adherence
- Preventative care to the stop asthma flares
- Paediatric asthma
- Severe asthma
This ALM explores the impact of asthma for patients, and common challenges to providing optimal care in primary practice. Based on current Australian guidelines, the ALM covers best practice diagnostic and management principles, strategies for preventive care and reducing the risk of hospitalisation, and real-world tips for making the most of your consultation time with a patient.
Patient case studies and downloadable resources are included throughout the ALM, as well as information on ways to tailor treatment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and for culturally and linguistically diverse populations.
These activities are accredited for general practitioners with both the RACGP CPD program and the ACRRM PDP program. The ALM is an accredited CPD activity worth 40 RACGP CPD points or 6 ACRRM PDP hours. 1-hr modules completed outside of the ALM are worth 2 RACGP CPD points or 1 ACRRM PDP hour each. For nurses and other professions, you may be able to self-claim this activity via your CPD governing body.
