The RACGP is seeking insights and contributions from the GP community for its annual general practice conference.

This week’s round up also includes last calls for the RACGP Foundation Grants and Awards program, how to get involved in celebrating 30 years of RACGP Rural, and the next online family violence GP training program.
GP22 call for submissions
The RACGP’s annual conference is a chance to share the unique contribution GPs and their colleagues make to patients, the general practice profession and healthcare in Australia.
‘GP22 is a time to share our clinical, psychological, innovative, self-care and reflective insights in a way that brings members together, reminds us why we’re all GPs, and puts a smile back on our collective faces,’ according to Chair of RACGP Victoria and the GP22 Advisory Group, Dr Anita Muñoz.
The college is now calling for:

  • 15-minute oral presentations to share research
  • one-hour clinical presentations
  • poster/ePoster clinical and research presentations.
This year’s conference is set to be held as a hybrid in-person and digital event in Melbourne. More information on how to get involved is available on the GP22 submissions page.
Foundation grants 2022 applications
RACGP Foundation research grants provide a significant opportunity to make an impact on Australian general practice.
The RACGP Foundation Grants and Awards program has nurtured GP researchers across Australia to develop an evidence base, discover new ideas, and solutions to improve primary healthcare for all Australians. 
The research grants and awards acknowledge the vital contribution GPs and GPs in training make in furthering medical advancements within the community. Participants can join the long list of exceptional GPs and GPs in training whose important work was funded by an RACGP Foundation grant.
Applications close Monday, 2 May. More information is available on the RACGP website.  
30 years of RACGP Rural
This year RACGP Rural celebrates a significant milestone – its 30th anniversary.
The faculty was formed on 26 April 1992, and is marking this date by coming together online with RACGP President Adjunct Professor Karen Price and Rural Chair Dr Michael Clements to celebrate the history and achievements, and to share member stories.
The event will feature RACGP Rural members from across Australia:
  • Dr Ross Wilson
  • Associate Professor Ayman Shenouda
  • Dr Chris Mitchell
  • Dr Sue Page
Connect with rural colleagues from around Australia for this special event, share personal reflections and find out what else the faculty has planned throughout the year to celebrate 30 years.
Tuesday 26 April, 7.00 – 8.00 pm.
Register online.
Family violence GP education program
The RACGP is inviting all members to undertake an online training program to build skills in responding to and recognising the signs of domestic and family violence.
This free CPD training program is evidence based and is a result of findings from Australia’s first Royal Commission into Family Violence, which recommended professional development training for GPs in family and domestic violence.
Eligible for up to 40 CPD points, participants will join like-minded GPs, medical professionals, and healthcare workers as they share, discuss, and develop knowledge of family violence via peer-group learning activities. 
Register online for the next session:
‘Violence against people from culturally, linguistically and faith diverse communities’, facilitated by Dr Aadhil Aziz. Wednesday 27 April, 6.00 – 7.00 pm.
