The Diagnosis and management of gout module is part of the General Practice 2012 Curriculum (e-GP) and can be accessed when you are logged in to e-LfH via the CPPE website under e-Learning for Healthcare learning modules.
This session covers the diagnosis and management of gout, and how to differentiate gout from other conditions, including septic arthritis. It also covers treatments for both acute and chronic gout.
An OpenAthens account is required to access this learning. Consultant rheumatologist, Dr Edward Roddy, offers expert answers to questions from GPs on common challenges with gout, including treating acute attacks and initiating urate lowering therapy in patients with comorbidities.
Session 2 of this e-learning is Gout and Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR).
This session aims to cover the diagnosis and treatment of two common conditions, gout and polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR), both of which can often be managed in primary care.
