193247 - GP Obstetric Shared Care - Accreditation Seminar 2020
The GP Obstetric Shared Care Program's Accreditation Seminar for 2020 aims to provide GPs, with a particular focus on newly accredited GPs to the program, with the necessary skills and training to provide safe and quality antenatal care to their pregnant patients over 20 weeks gestation. This seminar will include common antenatal complications that may arise in pregnancy and emphasis on management according the statewide GP OSC Protocols.
Relevance to General Practice
Women wishing to attend a South Australian public hospital (in metropolitan Adelaide and Gawler) for childbirth have the option of GP Obstetric Shared Care if they meet the designated criteria of being healthy and experiencing a normal low-risk pregnancy. In this model, the General Practitioner (GP) provides most of the antenatal and postnatal care, while the public hospital provides the inpatient, birth and some outpatient obstetric care. It is imperative that the Accredited GP to the GP OSC Program can provide appropriate care and identify potential complications and refer to the appropriate service in a timely manner.
To this end GP Partners Australia manage the GP Obstetric Shared Care Program and are contractually required to provide the necessary training and education to GP s accredited to the Program.
