Research news

The doctors and nurses at Fountain Street General Practice are regularly involved in research projects that will hopefully improve the health of our patients. One of these projects, investigating the usefulness of electronic reminders in increasing screening for sexually transmitted infections in gay men, has recently completed and an initial report has just been published in the journal Family Practice.

Dr Brad has also signed up to participate in a study coordinated by Monash University, HealthMap, which aims to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in people with HIV infection. If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact the practice and make an appointment to see Dr Brad to discuss your eligibility.
