154889 - GP Obstetric Shared Care Clinical Refresher Seminar

  • : Online


This GP Obstetric Shared Care Clinical Refresher will provide GPs who are providing Obstetric Shared Care to their pregnant women with training relating to the SA GP OSC Program Protocols (August 2017). The seminar will include relevant information regarding the management of infections common in pregnancy, the management of the bariatric patient, as well as an update in maternal serum screening. This seminar will also offer an in depth discussion around the management of Thalassaemia in pregnancy and a timely update of the implications and management of PCOS. This activity aims to provide consistent information and resources for GPs to manage abnormal results and normal results and to effectively communicate results in challenging situations. The event is offered with multiple experienced speakers using case studies, break out group discussions with different scenarios for discussion, brainstorming ideas as well as the opportunity for questions and answers.

Relevance to General Practice

For women experiencing low-risk, healthy pregnancies, GPs can play a critical and powerful role in terms of care for pregnant women including pre-conception, antenatally and postnatally. The GP Obstetric Shared Care program, administered by GP Partners Australia for SA Health, aims to build the capacity and skills of general practitioners caring for women experiencing a healthy pregnancy and provides a framework for patient ‘shared care’ with OPD clinics and public hospitals. It is imperative that the accredited GP can identify potential complications and refer to the appropriate service in a timely manner.
