Essential Skills Education is a 2-hour on demand online activity, using video footage of expert AOD practitioners to demonstrate techniques that can be used to enhance the conversations GPs have with patients about their alcohol and drug use.
Essential Skills will support GPs to better screen for alcohol and drug use, assess patients’ readiness for change and determine appropriateness of referring to alcohol and other drug treatment services.

This on demand activity is available until 31 July.

The AOD Essential Skills Education is accredited for CPD in the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) 2020-2022 Program.

The RACGP has developed the Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) GP Education Program, which aims to strengthen the capacity of GPs to address the alcohol and other drug use in their communities. The program has been tailored to meet the needs of GPs in different communities and settings. For full details see the RACGP Alcohol and Other Drugs GP Education Handbook.
