107378 - ANSC - RHW Neonatal Clinical Placements

  • : Online

The Central and Eastern Sydney PHN (CESPHN) & Royal Hospital for Women (RHW) have been working collaboratively to deliver effective care in pregnancy for women residing in Eastern Sydney since July 2012 (previously MLs). RHW is a major teaching hospital affiliated with the University of NSW with approximately 4000 deliveries/year. RHW provides a broad range of obstetric options for expectant mothers, the largest of which is GP Antenatal Shared Care (GPANSC). RHW has identified three key areas of professional development to ensure that affiliated GPs stay abreast of the latest evidence based practice in the following topic areas: Obstetric principles in Primary Care; General Antenatal Care, General Neonatal Care. These areas are reviewed regularly by an Antenatal Shared Care Management Committee which meets quarterly and includes key hospital representatives & GP Advisors in conjunction with CESPHN.

Relevance to General Practice

As key partners in the Antenatal Shared Care Program, GPs are required to maintain a high level of care for expectant mothers and as such CPD is an essential component of the program for GPs to maintain and improve their knowledge of Obstetrics, Gynaecology, and neonatal care. Clinical placements provide an opportunity for GPs to strengthen skills in obstetric and neonatal clinical examinations.
