Relevance to General Practice

Significant changes have occurred in Qld with respect to abortion provision in recent times. The Termination of Pregnancy Bill was passed in Qld parliament in October 2018 and abortion provision was removed from the Criminal Code in December 2018. In addition, mifepristone and misoprostol have been listed on the PBS for medication abortion since August 2013. Despite these changes, abortion access remains difficult for many women. GPs are ideally placed to enhance this access with both direct and indirect input, and this conference is designed to help improve skill and confidence in this area.
