Join us for a half-day webinar focused squarely on how to improve earlier diagnosis of cancer, while also avoiding some of the common pitfalls which can trip you up along the way.

We're all GPs in clinical practice and only too aware of how difficult it is to spot cancers early when they present in primary care, so as well as being a practical half day, it will also be pragmatic!

Using specific cancer examples, we will take you through how to get better at spotting cancers in the context of:

  • Recurrent infections
  • Soft markers e.g. elevated platelets, microcytosis or weight loss etc
  • Unusual age groups
  • Vague symptoms

We'll also cover how to avoid being fooled by false negative tests, and how to make safety netting work better for you and your patient.

Plus, we'll talk about how to make NG12 (the updated NICE Guidelines on Cancer) more manageable and useful on a day-to-day basis - through the use of Decision Support Tools such as Q-Cancer, and the Risk Assessment Tool, as well as locally commissioned initiatives such as C-the signs.

In the context of regularly changing guidance around primary care direct access testing - both radiological and near patient - we'll help you to get a better handle on which tests are useful, and how to avoid some of the pitfalls that go along with them.

Early diagnosis has formed a key element of the PCN DES and QUIP QI in recent years. We expect that it will continue to be a source of focus for PCNs and practices going forwards, so we offer you a step-by-step guide to quality improvement, data gathering & analysis - as well as signposting to other resources to support your practice and PCN.

Now also available on demand! A half day course covering all the essentials that will make a real difference to people with Type 2 diabetes and our confidence in supporting them.

Does Type 2 diabetes seem more complicated and confusing than it used to be? We think so!

  • Overwhelmed by the baffling array of drugs and sometimes don’t know which way to go when metformin doesn’t do the trick?
  • Want to offer high impact lifestyle advice and encourage self-management but not completely sure how to do it in a way that actually makes a difference?
  • Feel like you are juggling lipids, blood pressures, renal function, fatty liver and HbA1c and finding hard to see the wood from the trees?
  • Not completely sure what the difference is between MODY and LADA (and half-wondering if they might be car models?).
  • New diabetic lead for your practice or PCN, whether you are a nurse, GP or AHP?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions we are sure that the Type 2 Diabetes Demystified course is for you. A half-day focussing on the stuff that will really make a difference to people with type 2 diabetes. We will cover everything assessing and managing risk, diagnosis, management and high impact lifestyle support, spotting emergencies and choosing drugs.

The course will be available live on the date and on demand for 12 months after the date of purchase.

Please note that no printed handbook or access to GPCPD will be provided with this course. All the resources required to attend will be downloadable from the webinar platform.

  • What is normal ageing…and what isn’t?
  • The terrible triplets: frailty, multimorbidity and polypharmacy
  • How to do a really good medication review and feel good about deprescribing!
  • The 3D’s of deterioration: delirium, depression and dementia
