Symptoms of testosterone deficiency are an increasingly recognised reason for presenting to primary care. Reasons why we have seen a sharp increase in the prescription of testosterone therapies include the ageing population, an increasingly obese population, and increasing promotion of erectile dysfunction and the benefits of testosterone replacement.
This module, which has been specifically designed for General Practitioners, focuses on some common problems related to men’s health issues with a focus on testosterone deficiency. The questions, posed as clinical cases, are typical of what one might see in clinical practice.
Once you complete the module – and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% – you'll be awarded with a downloadable 1 hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your CPD Portfolio.
