Online GP learning

Cancer Australia has two online interactive learning modules hosted on the RACGP's online learning platform, gplearning. 

  • Cancer screening: an evidence-based educational module designed to support the central role that GPs play in discussing and managing cancer screening, including providing evidence-based information to patients so they can make an informed choice about participation in screening. 
  • Managing breast symptoms: an educational module designed for GPs, breast physicians and practice nurses, focusing on breast cancer and benign breast problems such as breast cysts, mastalgia, fibroadenomas and nipple discharge. 

Completion of each module is approved for 40 Category 1 points in the RACGP QI & CPD Program.
