Vaccination: Australians who are 65 or over may not consider themselves to be older Australians, and may not understand that once they reach 65 the risk of developing pneumococcal disease increases significantly. As the flu season approaches, it’s an ideal opportunity to talk to patients about concomitant vaccination against pneumococcal disease.
World Osteoporosis Day is nearly here… October 20th. If someone’s sustained a minimal trauma fracture, the next one is most likely to occur within 12 months, so seize the day and screen, diagnose, treat, and prevent that next fracture. This interview really gets to the heart of the condition, by discussing some important questions asked by us, us GPs at the coal face.

Mental Health Awareness Month: In this interview we discuss 3 different patient case studies; Tim’s 16 and presenting with symptoms of schizophrenia for the first time.

Nutrition focus: Type 2 diabetes is occurring more in younger people. We have an epidemic of obesity that we have to confront, partly due to food availability, energy dense foods, changes in diet, the westernisation of diets in addition to increasing sedentariness. In this interview we discuss the foundation stone of diabetes care.
Vitamin D, part 3 of a 3 part series – Pregnancy & Infancy. In Australia, between one-quarter and one-half of pregnant women have a mild vitamin D deficiency, which we defined as less than 50 nanomoles per litre.
