Relevance to General Practice
The presentation that will be delivered during this GP event will give the GP a broader knowledge from many different orthopaedic specialties. This event allows The Sydney Private Hospital to show case their services that the GP’s may find of benefits to their patients.
General Practitioners have to see many patients from various specialties in their day to day activities. When referring patients to various specialties GP’s may lack knowledge in this area which effectives the quality of the referral.(1)
The Sydney Private Hospital has a unique opportunity to offer rehabilitation within their facilities as well as Delmar offering the surgical experience for shoulder, knee & hip replacement surgeries. This rehabilitation approach both pre-operatively & post-operatively allows the patient to receive a specified patient plan which will encourage shorter hospitalisation within their stay in these hospitals.
