Professional development points
This Small Group Learning (SGL) is aimed to support you in your practice. Meet with like-minded general practitioners to discuss a range of topics selected and agreed on by you, the participants, at a time which is convenient for you.
During this first session, GPs will choose which AOD topics they would like to cover and dates of follow up sessions (4 sessions). AOD topics can include:
  • pharmacotherapy,
  • alcohol in pregnancy,
  • benzo reduction,
  • amphetamines.
A total of 6 hours is required to obtain the 40 RACGP points. Sessions will be held as two hour blocks every two months. Three sessions must be attended to obtain the 40 RACGP points followed by a review meeting.

Come along, learn, share your knowledge and expertise. Sessions will be supported by a skilled facilitator, knowledge champions, evidence-based resources and relevant case studies.
