COVID Update – A/Prof Nigel Crawford
The Delta variant is proving to be a game-changer in the fight against COVID-19. Its high and seemingly indiscriminate infectivity has seen a huge surge in people requesting vaccination against the virus, particularly with the Pfizer vaccine. GPs are at the frontline, they are a major part of the solution. More than ever, GPs need to be across the latest in all aspects of COVID-19 and the vaccines available to combat this pandemic.
In this webcast, Healthed will deliver answers from Australian experts on the important issues GPs need to know in order to stay up to speed in the war against this deadly and ubiquitous virus.

As in so many areas of medicine, what happens in the real world isn’t always covered in the textbooks.

Oral Contraception Masterclass Lecture – Dr Terri Foran
Part 1 – Physiology and Pharmacology of Oral Contraception
In this presentation, well-known women’s health expert, Dr Terri Foran outlines the basic physiology that underpins female fertility and the targets for oral contraception. She will outline how the various pharmacological agents work, comparing and contrasting effectiveness as well as safety issues to ensure prescribing clinicians can make evidenced-based decisions for each individual patient who wants to avoid falling pregnant.

Part 2 – Basic and Intermediate Prescription of Oral Contraception
There are a plethora of choices when it comes to oral contraception. Knowing which option is best for which patient can be tricky. In this talk, Dr Terri Foran will outline a practical framework that will help guide GPs through this decision-making process, so they can be confident their patient is prescribed the most appropriate pill for them.
