To date FOAMed for primary care is scant on the ground

I am grateful for Dr Jonathan Ramachenderan in WA for supplying this link to THINKGP.com.au – users can register for free and has useful online resources PLUS it delivers CPD points.


Dr Tim Senior also comments on topics of relevance to the bush – you can see more at his website

Otherwise FOAM4GP.com is the main repository to which I would encourage users. Current FOAMed topics under discussion include :

Bites & Stings – new CSL Guidelines review

Borderline Personality Disorder – practice guidelines

Cardiac – assessment of the low risk cardiac patient in GP

Dental pain in primary care

Educational resources / FOAMed blogs for primary care

FRACGP exam – all you need to know to pass (I still reckon that this boils down to ‘turn up sober and don’t bill the examiners during the OSCE or “simulated patient encounter” – or at least don’t charge a gap!)

Gout in Six Minutes for the GP

Headaches – the Good, the Bad & the Ugly

Kawasaki Disease in 10 mins for Rural Docs

Osteoarthritis update

Otitis Media in ATSI – 2010 guidelines

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (from @nomadicGP)

PSA screening – where are we now? (from BroomeDocs.com)

PSA testing – perils of overdiagnosis

The RED EYE in GP (from Dr Mel Clothier, GreenGP.com)

Shoulder dislocation – varied ways, Cunningham technique is flavour of the month currently with me

Social Media guidelines from the UK’s RCGP – basically don’t say anything you wouldn’t in public, ensure confidentiality and identify yourself
