It's an emergency... call the doctor!
This year the RDWA annual conference for resident rural GPs was all about management of common emergency presentations in rural general practice.
'It's an emergency... call the doctor' was held on the afternoon of Friday 22 May followed by a full day on Saturday 23 May 2015 at the National Wine Centre, Adelaide. We secured endorsement for a one day emergency procedural grant and Category 1 points.
A casual dinner with rural GPs and their partners was held on Saturday night at the zoo.
The Family Program had something for every age group - Hairy Maclary for the little ones, the zoo for everyone, and a high tea and chat for the big ones.
The RDWA also offered university students who are members of their rural clubs the opportunity to take part in a one day, multi-disciplinary conference to experience the richness and breadth of rural practice.
Quick Q and A
How will I get my accommodation subsidy?
RDWA staff will contact resident GPs who attend the conference to provide a claim form. GPs can send their claim form and accommodation receipts by return mail or by the web. A subsidy of $125 for each of Friday and Saturday nights is available to assist with costs. Receipts will be required.
How will I claim a procedural grant?
Procedural grants are determined according to the College's criteria. You will need to check your eligibility with your College and claim according to the College process.
