NPS MedicineWise are now offering educational visits in several formats to ensure that health professionals can stay informed and up to date in a way that suits their practice.  

Educational visits can now be done via: 

  • Virtual visits using video call. These are available to support practices who wish to continue educational activities without a face-to-face appointment. 
  • One-on-one for a 30-minute in-practice discussion for GPs, tailored to individual learning needs. Visits will follow state and territory regulations and the requirement to continue social distancing. 
  • Small groupfor a 1-hour group discussion for up to 10 health professionals (GPs, pharmacists and nurses). This is available via video call. 

Current topics covered by educational visits are:  

  • Paediatric asthma: breathing new life into diagnosis and management that covers important differences between diagnosing and managing asthma in preschool and school-age children, and how treatment of children's asthma differs from that of adults. 
  • Opioids and the bigger picture when treating chronic painwhich provides clarity on the role of opioids when supporting patients with chronic non-cancer pain. 

All educational visits are approved CPD activities under both RACGP and ACCRM.
