The inaugural Melbourne Children’s GP Paediatric Update (GPPU) will be held at The Royal Children’s Hospital on Saturday 4 August.
The GPPU is designed specifically for General Practitioners (GPs) and will provide practical paediatric education on a range of issues at the forefront of paediatric health and wellbeing.
The program comprises interactive presentations and workshops from paediatric experts designed to update GPs on a number of paediatric issues relevant to general practice. There will be updates on areas including immunisation, common allergy problems, respiratory illness and obesity, and an expert panel to discuss child and adolescent mental health. The GPPU is part of the RCH Foundation Enhancing Medical Education Grant and is coordinated by the Department of Paediatrics, The University of Melbourne.
