GP Maternity Shared Care Alignment 1 (AM1) - Logan/Beaudesert/Redland

25 May 2024

GP Maternity Shared Care Education

The Metro South GP Maternity Shared Care Team are hosting an Alignment 1 (AM1) education seminar on 25 May, 8am to 4pm at The Musgrave Room, Quality Hotel Robertson Gardens, Nathan 4111. This practical seminar is tailored for Practitioners that provide maternity care to women within Logan, Beaudesert and Redland catchments. This education day will be attended by GPs, Obstetricians, Midwives and our Allied Health colleagues.

It is recognised that the GP plays an integral role in the primary health care of a family and is best placed to support a pregnant woman and her family through their healthcare journey. Most women present to their GP for a referral in pregnancy, regardless of whether they will be a private or public patient and independent of their chosen maternity model of care. The program seeks to update GPs about the required investigations, communication pathways, medication use and recommendations for care of the common presentations and the not so common, but important presentations.

Attending this seminar and completeing the pre-requisite activity will align GPs to participate in Maternity Shared Care with the Metro South Hospital Maternity Services for the next three years.

Topics will focus on:

  • Antenatal referrals - Pathways and essential components
  • Available maternity services and models of care in Metro South
  • Complexities of pregnancy prevalent in the Brisbane South Region
  • Current recommendations for reproductive carrier and first trimester screening
  • Up-to-date evidence-based education on pregnancy care
  • Routine Postnatal Care
  • and more!

Morning tea, Lunch and Afternoon tea will be provided.

Note: This is a self-reported for educational activity, review performance and CPD points (hours of each to be discussed on the day).

This session is open to all practitioners who care for Maternity patients, the AM1 education day and successful completion of the post event will allow you to be aligned with Metro South for GP Shared Care for three years.
