Registrations are now open for the 2022 Primary Care Refresher, held over two days on 4-5 June.

Western Victoria PHN is delighted to announce that the keynote speakers for this year’s event will include Professor Michael Kidd, Deputy Chief Medical Officer and Principal Medical Advisor, and Adjunct Professor Ruth Stewart, National Rural Health Commissioner.

This year, the Primary Care Refresher will be run in a ‘hybrid format’, with options to attend online or face-to-face on Saturday 4 June. Participants may opt to attend virtually or network in person and meet at a venue in each of our sub regions – Geelong, Ballarat, Horsham and Warrnambool. Sessions on Sunday 5 June will be run online only.

The theme of the 2022 Refresher is The Journey of Primary Care Through a Pandemic, and the conference will feature a range of insightful sessions across two streams, as follows:

  • GP Stream: will cover important topics relating to GPs only (RACGP and ACRRM points will be applied for).
  • Primary Care Stream: will cover important topics relating to GPs, Practice Managers, Practice Nurses, practice staff and Allied Health Professionals.

Plenary sessions include palliative care engagement during COVID-19, innovative ways practices are managing patients in primary care during COVID and First Nations Health – the role of primary care.

GP stream topics include eating disorders, the Lifestyle Breakthrough Program, Long COVID and ME/CFS and mental health – recovery in the shadow of the pandemic.

Primary Care stream topics will cover wound management, resilience in primary care, refocusing your business and MBS billing, chronic disease management and workflow.
