With the end of the year approaching, Deloitte published their General Practitioner Workforce Report – with findings about factors that will impact General Practitioners in Australia for the decade ahead until 2030.

We highlight Why 'Too Much Medicine' can be problematic for most patients, How Electronic Prescribing can help Pharmacies improve and information about New Clinical Trials to improve cancer treatments.

The RACGP released a Statement about 'Too Much Medicine' - supporting the use of optimal medicine and highlighting the potential harmful impacts to patients from over-diagnosing. 

We highlight statistics about the frequency of GP Visit Delays, proposals for Autonomous Pharmacist Prescribing and awareness for women's Mammography Services.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics revealed that of the amount of people who needed to see a GP, 22.8% delayed seeing or did not see a GP over the past 12 months. This has been a 6.5% decrease from the previous year. 

We highlight research into a new Artificial Intelligence tool to help with Heart Attacks, factors for a payment model reflecting Pharmacist Counselling services and the importance of CT Scanning in Lung Diseases.

We highlight important factors to consider for GP Locum Jobs in Australia, the Bigger Picture of Community Pharmacies operating in Australia and New findings about Hormone Therapy Risks.

Locum work appeals to many doctors in Australia every year, especially to those looking for flexibility, work-life balance and the opportunity to work in their area of expertise at good pay rates and different environments.  

We highlight why GPs in Australia should consider up-skilling in Skin Work, new 3D Mammography findings and Australia's Largest Pharmacy retailer opening in China.

In General Practice, GPs can further specialise in certain areas that have a great impact on the patients in the community but also their own workload. Skin work is one of those areas in demand with GPs.
