165746 - Paediatric Masterclass for General Practice - 2019

  • : Online

To provide updated clinical knowledge, clinical resources and an opportunity to update practical skills in relation to the care of children and young people. An ideal opportunity to strengthen local networking with those involved in the care of children in Queensland.

Relevance to General Practice

1. ASCIA and A&AA have developed the first National Allergy Strategy for Australia. GPs need to have an ability to manage atopy in the community. 
2. The transition from paediatric to adult care is associated with poor clinical outcomes, increased costs and low patient and family satisfaction. GPs require an intimate understanding of the role of the NDIS, Specialist Services, and the transition to adult services to ensure these risks are mitigated. 
3. Behavioural disorders of childhood account for 15% of referrals to General Paediatric Outpatients at LCCH (Internal Audit Data). GPs are best placed to understand the family and community context of these presentations, and to identify children requiring early intervention. 
4. Newborn babies are vulnerable in their first weeks of life, with sepsis, growth failure and congenital anomalies all presenting risk of serious morbidity or mortality if not managed well by the GP. GPs must have a systematic approach to assessing the neonate.
