GPnotebook Clinics: Full-day event

A typical “Clinic” will mirror our daily work in primary care and use multiple patient case studies to cover the latest clinical guidance, research and hot topics (e.g. BTS/SIGN 2019 asthma & Scottish Palliative Care Guidance 2019). Case studies will also include diagnosis and management pearls for more common presentations (e.g. dermatology and musculoskeletal complaints), prescribing & de-prescribing (including drug safety alerts) and also the interpretation of commonly abnormal investigations such as blood tests and spirometry. Finally, a “Home Visits” section will focus on the management of such scenarios as multimorbidity, frailty, polypharmacy, and end of life care in primary care.
