Common sense pathology - a case-based approach for general practice

Correctly ordering and interpreting pathology tests is vital to ensuring a timely diagnosis and appropriate and effective management plan for your patients.

This case-based online module aims to increase GPs’ knowledge in identifying when pathology testing is required, and which is the most appropriate test in some of the most commonly presentations in the general practice setting. A series of interactive quizzes will test your skills and update knowledge in the interpretation and the identification of patient red flags, to support timely testing and better patient outcomes.

After completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Apply a patient-centred approach in clinical assessment and in identifying when testing is necessary
  • Describe the role of autoantibody testing in the investigation of autoimmune conditions
  • Evaluate the possible causes of persistent fatigue in patients through
