Dr Greg Rowles is a General Practitioner from Riddells Creek in rural Victoria, and a member of an Expert Group which developed and reviewed Version 16 of the Antibiotic Guidelines.

Today we discuss:

  • Antibiotic stewardship and practical GP considerations in antibiotic prescribing including shared decision making, penicillin hypersensitivity, paediatric recommendations etc
  • Ear nose throat: Acute otitis media and tonsillitis update
  • Respiratory: Community-acquired pneumonia update
  • Genitourinary: UTI and STI update
  • GIT: Diverticulitis and parasite update
  • Dermatology: Cellulitis, bite wounds, diabetic foot infection

And tangential questions in-between!

Conflict of interest: Dr Rowles is obviously associated with the Therapeutic Guidelines.  However, there are no conflicts of interest for myself/The GP Show podcast.   I did NOT receive any financial payment for this episode.  

Enjoy friends.
