What is GP Lyf Hacks?

“GP Lyf Hacks” is a FREE Australian health literacy podcast for doctors in training, students of medicine, nursing, allied health and health sciences and anyone who wants to understand their own health better.

Due to increasing popularity, GP Lyf Hacks has expanded it’s educational resources to include video tutorials  on YouTube, Facebook, TikTok and Instagram and downloadable written resources in addition the audio podcast available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Soundcloud.

What makes GP Lyf Hacks Unique?

It is easily digestible. Our education is delivered in bite-sized pieces, ie. 20-minute podcast episodes and 1-minute video tutorials, so that the information is easily digestible and memorable. It should also make learning fun as oppose to a chore.

It is easily accessible. Our content is delivered in a range of formats using popular apps that are easily accessible such as Spotify and Instagram. No more logging into multiple portals for quick reference!

It is evidence-based and full of real-life cases and experiences of Australian GP of the Year, Dr David Lam, making the tutorials practical, current and relevant.

It is practical. Health literacy is for everyone, not just professionals therefore communication is just as important as the science. Concepts are easily explained so that they can be useful to everyone.
