Rheumatology in Primary Care 2022

Metro North Hospital and Health Service (MNHHS), the Australian Rheumatology Association Queensland (ARAQ), Arthritis Queensland (AQ), and Brisbane North PHN invite GPs across Queensland to join them, and their experts, for a webinar of education and discussion.

Presenters will highlight the vital role of GPs in managing common rheumatology conditions and dilemmas. The webinar will help you stay up to date with best rheumatology practice, assist practitioners with limited access to rheumatology services and highlight the state wide resources available to support your practice.

This education will be in webinar format with registrants able to submit questions during the event. There will also be a quiz! Further information and links to access the webinar will be sent out in a separate confirmatory email on registration.
