Men’s health learning plan

5.50 credits

Challenging clinical topics in men’s health are the focus of this learning plan for GPs. Learning plans provide key learning points on diagnosis, management, follow-up and referral. You can undertake the whole plan to demonstrate that you have studied this area in depth, or use individual modules from the plan to complement your existing learning. You can claim credits for all the modules that you complete.

The in-depth clinical reviews in this learning plan cover:

  • erectile dysfunction
  • premature ejaculation

    Each clinical review provides key information on prevalence, making a diagnosis, management and prognosis. Case studies in each review provide insight into the management of individual patients while the evidence base provides references for further reading. Each clinical review provides a suggested 1.5 credits towards your learning portfolio, and you can increase the number of credits you claim by demonstrating the impact of your learning on your practice.

    Other articles in this plan cover:

  • Chronic prostatitis
  • Lower urinary tract symptoms
  • Scrotal conditions
