GPs and other primary healthcare workers can earn CPD credits online with a new course from the MDU.

The MDU has teamed up with online educational resource MIMS Learning to offer a new range of courses aimed at GPs and other health professionals working in the primary sector.

'Safe, ethical practice' supports doctors and others in primary care in their understanding and knowledge of medico-legal and ethical aspects of their clinical work.

The articles address preventing and managing problems that can lead to complaints and claims against GPs and other healthcare professionals in primary care. They cover informed decision making, financial probity in general practice and good communication when responding to a complaint, with further topics to be added in the coming months.

Each article has been written by the MDU's expert team of medico-legal advisers, and users can gain 0.5 CPD credits for each article after completing a short test of what they've learned.

Access the articles and earn your CPD credits here.
