Plasma Problems & Platelet Perplexities: A GP's Guide

Haematology & Oncology for General Practice CPD series

Deepen your understanding of non-cancerous haematological conditions and melanoma management.

Iron Management, and Haematomas

Date TBC

Melanoma Webinar

This education has been developed by Praxhub in partnership with Icon Cancer Centre - Australia's leading provider of cancer treatment.

Through this important education, participants will receive timely updates on:


  • Plasma cell issues - what is MGUS and when should myeloma diagnosis be considered?
  • Diagnosing and managing patients with too many or too few platelets
  • Managing iron levels and optimising iron transfusions
  • Differentiating bruises and bumps - when is a haematoma a red flag?


Melanoma is often referred to as 'Australia's national cancer', with a patient diagnosed every 30 minutes.[1] It is the most common cancer for young adults 20-39 years old, and although survival rates have significantly improved, there is much more work to be done to prevent, diagnose, treat, and manage patients throughout their lifetime.


Blood and metabolic disorders contribute 1.3% of the total burden of disease and 4.1% of health expenditure in Australia[2], yet there is a scarcity of current CPD education available for GPs on non-cancerous haematological conditions.[3]

About this education

This GP-led education program has been developed for primary care professionals nationwide by leading specialists and the Icon Cancer Centre in collaboration with Praxhub.

The webinar will provide an update on the plasma cell, and platelet disorders. This will include how they present in general practice, diagnostic considerations and will also outline the role of GPs in caring for patients with these haematological disorders.


Knowledge of the diagnosis and management of both plasma cell and platelet disorders is important for GP as GPs commonly order tests (eg a full blood count) which may identify occult disease. In the case of platelet disorders, the high risk of abnormal bleeding +/- clotting may also present with symptoms that are commonly seen by GPs. Plasma cell disorders can often go undetected and can contribute to other chronic conditions seen in general practice eg osteroporosis, renal disease, heart failure, anaemia.

Learning Outcomes


  1. Outline the differences between plasma cell and platelet disorders.
  2. Classify plasma cell and platelet disorders through clinical diagnosis.
  3. Implement evidence-based patient management of plasma cell and platelet disorders.
  4. Summarise the relationship between MGUS and blood cancers or other serious diseases.

Acute pain can develop into a chronic pain condition if it's not treated, or if the acute pain is poorly treated. The longer pain remains untreated, the greater the risk of pain becoming chronic.
