ALMs GLP-1 RAs in T2D: Where do they fit in best practice treatment? Join us for the Sydney launch of GPCE’s brand new quality improvement (QI) ALMs! This QI ALM explores where GLP-1 RAs (glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists) fit into best-practice Australian and international guidelines for the management of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and how to use them effectively with other glucoselowering therapy when individualising treatment for your patient. The first part of this program takes place at GPCE Sydney: An interactive 3-hour face-to-face session, where case studies will be presented showing how GLP-1 RAs may be used at different stages of the treatment journey, starting from early use as an add-on therapy with metformin. After the conference, a self-paced, two-hour online exercise will allow you to consolidate learnings from the face-to-face group learning and put these into practice.

Primary practice approach to continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and flash glucose monitoring in people with T2D Join us for the Sydney launch of GPCE’s brand new quality improvement (QI) ALMs! This hands-on, highly practical ALM explores how continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and flash glucose monitoring (Flash GM) using sensor based technology differ from self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) to identify and help manage glycaemic variability in people with type 2 diabetes (T2D). During a highly interactive 3-hour, face-to-face session at GPCE, participants will learn how to apply CGM/Flash GM technologies and analyse their output in a simple and systematic way. This session will be followed by 2 hours of self-paced online education, after the conference. GPs will have an opportunity to use Flash GM for 2 weeks in a real-world setting, and subsequently analyse the results to understand and manage glycaemic variability. Flash GM devices will be provided for this part of the activity. Time Group A Saturday - sessions 4, 5, 6

Keynotes Give them their breath back: New evidence-based approach to COPD

Psychedelic-assisted therapy for mental health: How do we advance the field?

COPD is the second leading cause of preventable hospital admissions in Australia. The “treatable traits” approach is a new evidence-based treatment paradigm to improve patient outcomes. This session will show you how you can implement treatable traits, and help you select the most appropriate treatment options for your patients with COPD.

A proactive approach to broadening the treatment options available for people who have a mental illness is desperately needed. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic many more Australians are experiencing anxiety, trauma, addiction and depression and suicide rates could significantly increase in the absence of innovation. The potential role of psychedelic medicines as adjuncts to psychotherapy for a wide array of mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder and addictions is receiving renewed attention in the quest for new treatment options. With trials now also underway for dementia, OCD and eating disorders, this keynote session will discuss the evidence for psychedelic-assisted therapy and investigate the potential applications of this novel therapy and the way forwards for Australia.
