GP Peer Support and Case Discussion Group

  • Duration
    8 x 1 hours sessions 
  • Program Outline

    For GPs living/practicing in non-metro areas.

    GP Peer Support and Case Discussion Groups are a closed group of GPs operating over 8 x 1-hour sessions. The aim of these groups is to allow participants the opportunity to connect with one another, to discuss issues arising from their own cases, explore challenges faced in practice and provide peer support to others who may be experiencing similar issues.

    The content of these sessions will be determined by the group and will be facilitated by an experienced GP facilitator from Black Dog Institute’s Professional Education team.

    A CPD points application will be made to ACRRM/RACGP for all group members who participate in all 8 sessions.
