GP Antenatal Shared Care – Information Evening

GP Antenatal Shared Care – Information Evening

Time

6:00pm to 8:30pm, 13/02/18

Venue

Peter Yorke Building, Theatrette, Level 3 173 Strickland Crescent, 2600 Deakin

Event Detail

Capital Health Network and ACT Health have been exploring opportunities to improve support and integration with The Canberra Hospital Maternity Services for GPs providing shared antenatal care.

We would like to discuss with GPs who are providing Antenatal Shared Care with CHHS the opportunity to be able to assess access remotely the women’s ACT health medical record and pathology results. The vehicle to for this would be offering interested GPs with an honorary VMO contract with ACT Health.

An honorary VMO contract, as well as assessing accessing the ACT Health client record, would enable GPs to also to be included in routine communication and education program with the CHWC Maternity Unit. It would also enable GPs if desired to attend antenatal clinics for your education needs.

An honorary VMO at ACT Health would be required to be credentialed, follow the maternity clinical guidelines and undertake a mandatory education program which would be tailored for this position.

Julie Porritt GM Innovation and Improvement CHN, Dr Boon Lim CD of Maternity Services at CHHS and Elizabeth Chatham Executive Director, Woman, Youth and Children would welcome an opportunity to meet with interested GPs to further discuss this opportunity.
