As part of a newly initiated cycle of JGL workshops for family practitioners entitled "Selected Topics from Cardiology, Diabetology, and Gastroenterology" and "JGL in Practice with You", hundreds of physicians from the Zagreb, Kvarner and Istria region attended interactive lectures held by a dozen renowned experts in Zadar during February and March.
Topics from the field of cardiology covered heart failure, syncope, chest pain, arrhythmia, dyspnea and anticoagulant therapy, while the diabetes topics covered the principles of perioral antidiabetic therapy and the introduction of insulin into therapy, monitoring type II diabetes, and the acute and chronic complications of diabetes. From the field of gastroenterology, we touched on the most common problems of constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, PPI gastroprotection, and we tackled the topic of gastroenterology patients in a family physician clinic. There were also practical workshops "ECG" and "Spirometry in Practice".
Physicians of the Kvarner and Istria region had the opportunity to visit JGL's new premises on Svilno and refresh their knowledge on pharmaceutical production processes and their complexity. They also had the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the production of generic medicines and sterile solutions in the Pharma Valley production complex.
The last in a series of lectures as part of the JGL workshops was held in early March in Split.We are proud that the topic of "Practical Cardiology" attracted over one hundred family practitioners.
