Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: A wound of mind and ...

In 2013, The Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation (GMRF) and RSL (Queensland Branch) commenced a research project to help veterans and their families manage Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The PTSD Initiative was a world-first study, investigating the physical and psychological toll of PTSD in Vietnam veterans.

With the study now published in the Medical Journal of Australia, the GMRF have translated this research into clinical practice, with an education program to help GPs and other healthcare professionals better identify the signs and symptoms of PTSD. To date, over 500 health professionals have completed our online education module. Of those, over 95 per cent stated they would be confident managing a patient with PTSD, having completed the education.

If you feel your clinical practice might benefit from this education program, visit ThinkGP_PTSD: A wound of mind and body.

The one hour course is accredited: RACGP 2 CPD, ACRRM 1 CME PD.
