About the MedAll Primary Care Education Programme

We are passionate about making medical education free and more accessible. In light of the increasing financial pressures faced by healthcare professionals, including the rising cost of living and strained practice finances, we felt compelled to do something. It's why we have introduced a no-cost CPD programme for doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals working in primary care (NB. Irish College of GPs CPD recognition pending). We recognise that the high expense of traditional CPD update courses is a significant barrier, and by collaborating as an entire primary care community we hope we can offer a practical, accessible alternative.

Summary

This Primary Care Updates course is designed to help GPs to stay up-to-date with the latest guidelines and developments in Managing HRT including bleeding, prescribing, types and balancing (oestrogen, testosterone, progesterone) Note for GPs in Ireland: We have applied for Irish College of GPs CPD points and recognition is pending Note for GPs in the UK: This event is not formally accredited by an external organisation for UK CPD points. The current guidance for GP CPD in the UK is that it is appropriate that the credits you self-allocate should equal however many hours you spent on learning activities, as long as they are demonstrated by a reflective note on lessons learned and any changes made or planned (if applicable).

Learning objectives

Learning outcomes: Understand and Interpret Current Guidelines: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to accurately interpret and apply the latest guidelines for Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), including the management of bleeding, to their practice. This outcome includes understanding the nuances of when to initiate HRT, monitoring therapy, and recognising indications for specialty referral. Safe and Effective Prescribing Practices: Participants will gain the ability to safely and effectively prescribe various types of HRT, including oral, transdermal, and compounded bioidentical hormones. They will learn to consider patient-specific factors such as age, health status, and personal preferences, ensuring personalised care. This also involves understanding the risks and benefits of HRT and communicating these effectively to patients. Comprehensive Management Strategies: The course will equip GPs with comprehensive strategies for managing HRT, including addressing common and complex issues related to hormone balancing (estrogen, testosterone, progesterone). Participants will learn to recognise signs of hormone imbalance, adjust dosages, and use combination therapies to optimise patient outcomes. Latest Developments and Research: GPs will be updated on the latest developments and research in the field of HRT, including new formulations, delivery methods, and long-term outcome studies. This knowledge will enable them to stay at the forefront of HRT management, contributing to better patient care and outcomes. These outcomes are designed to ensure that after completing the course, GPs are better equipped to provide up-to-date, evidence-based care to their patients undergoing HRT, with an emphasis on safety, personalisation, and efficacy.
