"Thyroid issues can be a contentious issue with patients and patient groups, particularly with the ease of access to Dr Google, and the pre-conceived ideas people can present with regarding their treatment.
In our module on hypothyroidism, consultant endocrinologist Dr Bijay Vaidya will update you on diagnosis and treatment of both overt and subclinical hypothyroidism, advice to give to patients who have used Google, as well as how to manage the condition in pregnancy. You will also learn:
- Clinical features of hypothyroidism
- Treatment pathways for overt and subclinical hypothyroidism
- Initial management of hypothyroidism in pregnancy"
Sounds ominous: "advice to give to patients who have used Google" (of course there's only one search engine in the world). Anyone got a high enough subscription level to do the course and find out what they are saying?
