Event description

Description

The inaugural Melbourne Children's GP Paediatric Update (GPPU) will be held at The Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, on Saturday 4th August 2018.

This 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. It will bring together GPs and trainees with a shared interest in providing optimal care for children and adolescents in the community.

The program comprises interactive presentations and workshops from paediatric experts designed to update GPs on a number of paediatric issues relevant to general practice. For example, there will be updates on immunisation, common allergy problems, respiratory illness and obesity, and an expert panel to discuss child and adolescent mental health.

The full program can be viewed here.
