The RACGP recognise the value of a variety of point of care resources to GP training participants. The significant number of resources available and the lack of usage commonality in each State and Territory has necessitated a considered decision on which resources will be made available nationally.
The college will not be providing AMH in 2023 in addition to Therapeutic Guidelines as the RACGP already provides DynaMed to members and the majority of practices provide MIMS through their practice software.
We recognise that these are not the equivalent of the specifically designed Australian resource, however, the analysis of the additional cost of AMH per usage, means this is unable to be funded at this point in time.
We do recognise that AMH is an important POC resource and registrars that have access to nationally consistent payments (NCP) can use these funds to purchase their own subscription. The RACGP also offers members a discount for AMH subscriptions.
To make access to POC resources easy for you, we have updated the Quick Links and Subscriptions on the TMS to include Therapeutic Guidelines, DynaMed, John Murtagh’s General Practice Collection and HealthPathways as feedback from registrars indicates that these are used frequently. Providing these as Quick Links will aid ease of access to these resources.
