Our charity is pleased to present the first Royal College of GPs eLearning course on antiphospholipid syndrome:
The charity funded the course which was developed by GPs working with our APS experts, under the guidance of the Royal College.
The RCGP will host the course on their website for two years until March 2019. It takes 30 minutes to complete, is free to register and 0.5 Continuing Professional Developments points and a certificate will be awarded on successful completion.
Naturally, we want to reach as many people as possible and the Royal College of GPs will promote the online course to its 52,000+ GP members, 9,000 GP Speciality Trainees and 30,000+ interested health practitioners, potentially reaching around 100,000 healthcare professionals.
APS Support UK is aiming to promote the training module to every GP practice via the regional Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS Wales, NHS Scotland and GP education boards.
We are also asking for APS patients to help with this education campaign and have produced a GP flyer that you can download and take along to your GP the next time you visit.
Please do not make a specific appointment – they are busy people – or drop it into the surgery as it will probably end up in the bin! Just remember to take it along if you have reason to visit and ask your GP to take time to look at the APS online course and encourage practice partners to do the same.
If you would like to receive some flyers by post, please contact us and we'll get some sent out to you.
