PBSGL Module Production Plans for 2018-2019


Before Christmas and into the New Year we undertook our annual survey of proposed modules to be produced in 2018-2019.


We received a very respectable 689 responses which has helped us decide which modules will be produced in 2018-2019, these are as follows:

1.   Short Cases – Cardiovascular problems. This module may include the new anticoagulants, hyperlipidaemia, peripheral vascular disease and venous insufficiency
2.   Haematological malignancies. This module may include the three main types: leukaemia, lymphoma, and myeloma
3.   Short Cases - Rheumatology. This module may cover the Connective Tissue diseases, and arthropathies other than rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
4.   Short Cases – Obstetrics. This module will study pregnancy, looking at common problems in which Primary Care has a role in management
5.   Short Cases - Psychiatry. This module may study the newer antidepressants, atypical antipsychotic medications, adult ADHD, and mindfulness
6.   Short Cases – Respiratory Disease. This module may include less commonly encountered lung conditions such as pulmonary fibrosis and bronchiectasis
7.   Wound care. This module will look at the role of the whole team in this clinical area
8.   Depression in adults. This module will include the role of psychological therapies e.g. CBT
