Telehealth Mastery Foundation Course – Relevance to General Practice 

Most of the continuing professional development courses available to GPs relate to the clinical aspects of our profession. Yet GPs also need to know how to manage their business through changing times. 

This course is for GPs in both metro and regional areas who are keen to keep abreast of the new trends in running a clinic and find news ways to increase revenue.

This course will suit you if you are a GP who wants to:

  • Create a sustainable telehealth service that builds your business or make better use of an existing telehealth service (many were introduced in a rush when COVID hit)
  • Build your patient base through a hybrid consultation model that incorporates in-clinic care and telehealth sessions
  • Increase revenue from your current patients
  • Attract new patients through modern, convenient services (patients love telehealth)
  • Provide better real-time care to patients with chronic diseases, those living in residential aged care and patients in rural and remote locations
  • Be well positioned to deliver after-hours services (high on the national health reform agenda)
  • Develop a better work-life balance through remote working, a higher throughput of patients and more control over your schedule.

Frequently asked questions
about the Telehealth Mastery Foundation Activity

Telehealth Mastery is the leading telehealth education course for Australian GPs, accredited by the RACGP and the ACRRM. It will equip you to leverage the power of telehealth to benefit your patients, your team and your practice.

When you enrol in Telehealth Mastery, you gain access to 6 weeks of online training and a LinkedIn group where you can engage with like-minded peers. You’ll also receive a downloadable workbook to guide your learning and, when you complete the course, you’ll gain 40 CPD points from the RACGP or 6 PDP points with the ACRRM.

COVID-19 has rapidly accelerated the uptake of telehealth in Australia. It has changed the landscape of primary care and it’s here to stay.

As a GP, you need to know how to manage your business through changing times. That means learning how to make the most of telehealth’s opportunities while minimising medico-legal risks. It means integrating your telehealth service into your routine practice management. And it means using your telehealth service to attract and retain patients. 

Telehealth isn’t just convenient for your patients. Done well, it can help you develop a better work-life balance through remote working, a higher throughput of patients and more control over your schedule. 

Telehealth Mastery has two streams. 

The Foundational Course is our largest course designed to teach you everything you need to know to run a successful telehealth service. 

We highly recommend that you start here but we don’t mandate it because your learning is in your hands. 

Alongside the Foundational Course are smaller courses, created to teach you how to use telehealth for certain complex medical conditions. These will help you extend your service offerings and provide even greater value to your patients. 

Absolutely. The Foundational Course is worth 40 CPD points from the RACGP and 6 PDP points with the ACRRM. 

The Complex Medical Conditions mini-courses are each worth 3-5 CPD points from the RACGP and the ACRRM. 

You will need to complete all modules and lessons within the course, the breakout sessions and the quizzes to receive your CPD points. 

The Foundational Course is completed over 6 weeks. To graduate, you’ll need to complete each unit and attend 2 group webinars. 

We recommend you allocate 1 hour per week plus another 2 hours for the breakout sessions or webinars. Of course, if you prefer, you can do larger chunks of work over a shorter period of time.

The Complex Medical Conditions courses involve a shorter time commitment of approximately 3 hours per course

You’ll be learning from:

  • Gillian Alexis, CEO and founder of Phenix Health, an entrepreneur with a blended career of business and health research who has devoted several decades managing and developing virtual healthcare business, winning a few telemedicine awards along the way.

  • Ellie Bakker, CEO and co-founder of Splice Marketing, one of Australia’s fastest-growing and most dynamic health and medical marketing agencies, and Splice Consulting, which provides business advisory services to healthcare professionals keen to grow their practices.
