Event Overview

One Day Essentials are full-day online clinical conferences, available free-of-charge to all RCGP members, offering a minimum of 126 hours of CPD per year. All conferences are broadcast live and all session recordings and presentation slides are available to access from RCGP eLearning for up to nine months after the conference (we endeavour to upload content as quickly as possible after the conference, but it typically takes one to two weeks).

ENT is a key specialty for any GP. You rarely have a day in general practice without some form of an ENT encounter, hence a robust knowledge of the subject is important.

This programme has been specifically devised keeping the busy GP in mind. We aim to address the most common and essential learning needs that primary care practitioners have. The topics are handpicked to cover the core and important areas where knowledge of the subject is vital. We aim to fill the day with key points that you can directly translate into your daily practice. This conference will be interactive with plenty of time for Q&A.

Topics include:

  • Basic essential anatomy and physiology required for primary care
  • Essential ear conditions
  • Disorders of the nose and sinuses
  • Disorders of the throat
  • Dizziness approach, diagnosis approach and management
  • Red flags in ENT head and neck
  • Bell’s Palsy
  • Other relevant conditions
