We have written this e-course to introduce the fundamentals of working in a GP practice. By working through the activities each week you will develop knowledge, skills, experience and behaviours to support your introduction to work in general practice.
The programme will cover NHS structure and general practice, introduction to local general practice, medicines optimisation, medication review, prescribing and repeat prescribing, prescribing data, clinical information technology systems, audits, evidence-based use of medicines, working with the multidisciplinary team and person-centred professionalism.
