“Once again many thanks for a most informative talk. Without doubt you have greatly improved my knowledge of rheumatology. The webinars have caused me to change several aspects of my management of these conditions” – comments such as these encourage further development of this as a vehicle for education.

82% of those who voted at today’s webinar suggested the webinar format is an obvious way to deliver teaching and training. Authorities should take note in their planning, especially in the light of the introduction of new practices in the “under fives” scheme. There are other new innovations in primary care. The delivery of care for patients with asthma and type 2 diabetes is part of a strategy to increase community delivery of care and optimise certain practices.

Wednesday 7th October.

Many general practitioners have involvement with sport both as practitioners and as parents. Next in the ”Rheumatology Toolbox” Autumn Webinar series we will deal with ”concussion in sport”. The speaker, Dr Conor McCarthy, has been involved with the Irish Rugby Football Union for many years and has considerable expertise in issues concerning concussion. The webinar offers a national audience of general practitioners the opportunity to listen to an expert in this field. As usual, registration is free; the webinar is as close as the nearest laptop. This gives obvious savings with regard to time, travel and carbon. You can register through the website
