Eureka Clinical Development​

As South Africans are becoming increasingly conscious of the need to improve their health, more people are turning to their pharmacist and nurse practitioners for assistance with their well-being, recognising that you can help them to either prevent lifestyle associated diseases or assist in managing them effectively.

Extensive medical research is being done at an international level and diagnostic criteria, risk indicators and treatment guidelines are constantly being re-evaluated and updated. The very nature of private practice means that you run the risk of becoming academically isolated, and it is the healthcare provider’s responsibility to ensure that they remain up to date with health issues affecting South Africans.

The Eureka Clinical Development Programme will cover different modules during the year.  Each module will consist of assignments that will be submitted when completed. After studying the relevant material, you will be required to answer multiple choice questions to evaluate your understanding of the content.

We appreciate that healthcare professionals operate within extreme time constraints, so each assignment is short, precise and should be completed in less than 20 minutes.

Module 1: Metabolic syndrome (MetS)

The Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) is the collective term used for a group of interlinked medical conditions that all pose a significant health risk. If left unchecked, the cumulative effect of these conditions statistically reduces life expectancy by increasing the risk for developing heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes, as well as various forms of cancer.
