Save the Date: GP O&G Update Day

The RANZCOG Tasmanian Rural Committee (TRC) is hosting a GP update on Saturday 2nd March 2019 in Hobart as per the attached Save the Date below. Meg Creely is the GP rep on the TRC and it is hoped this workshop will be just as, if not more successful, than the one held in Launceston in November 2018. RACGP Cat 1 CPD points have been applied for, pending approval of the final interactive program. Whilst similar topics to the day held in Launceston in 2018 will be covered, there will be some additional speakers and an interactive session on care of the postpartum woman – involving a lactation consultant and women’s health physio – for all the burning questions. The registration website will be up and running in early February and a formal invitation will also be circulated at that time with more details.

Date: Saturday 2 March 2019

Time: 9.00am – 5.00pm

Venue: Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, 1 Davey Street

A wide range of Obstetrics and Gynaecology topics will be covered in this one-day workshop, including:

  •  Preterm Birth Prevention
  • Antenatal Screening for Genetic and Structural Abnormalities in Pregnancy 
  • Preeclampsia Screening and Prevention 
  • Risk Factors for Stillbirth 
  • Vulval Itch and Common Urogynaecology Complaints 
  • What’s New In Fertility Treatment 
  • Care of the Postpartum Woman 
  • Termination of Pregnancy
  • Endometriosis

It is anticipated that this interactive workshop will attract GPs from across the state and will help to strengthen relationships between primary care providers in the community and specialists. Formal invitations with further details, including the registration link, will follow shortly.
