Well that’s a wrap for the 2019 RDWA Annual GP Conference.
We thank all the presenters and the rural GPs who participated in the two-day conference. The feedback on the Program has been incredibly positive.
Kicking off the program on Friday morning, Dr Peter Gilchrist provided an insight into the life of a GP Anaesthetist and his field of study as part of his PhD. We finished on day two with an inspiring presentation by Dr Richard “Harry” Harris on the 2018 Thailand cave rescue.
This year, the conference provided delegates with informative presentations from 20 specialist doctors and health professionals covering topics from dermatology, endocrinology, dental presentations, doctor’s health and wellbeing, orthopaedics, neurology, rheumatology, women’s and children’s health.
Included were two discussion panels, one with some of the Country Health SA Regions CEO’s & Chairs and a Mental Health panel with the Country PHN, Country Health SA LHN and the RDWA discussing their respective roles and the nature of the services they fund and provide.
The exhibition area offered delegates the opportunity to talk to our staff about the programs and services available.
Our Family program was a lot of fun for the kids and an opportunity for the partners of our GPs to have some time together. The kids were engaged in everything from, garden pot decorating, to puppet making and an adventure to the Adelaide Zoo.
Saturday night’s relaxed dinner provided an opportunity to boogy the night away with the Rock Doctors band.
We look forward to seeing you at our next rural GP Conference in May next year.
