Overview

This 2-day workshop aims to equip health professionals working in primary health care settings with advanced assessment knowledge and skills so that they can identify the common conditions and serious illnesses that children, young people and adults present with. A comprehensive assessment of physical, mental and socio-cultural factors will be discussed within the context of taking responsibility for the full episode of care, including referral to specialists and social services. The most common medications used in primary care will also be discussed.

Patient – health provider communication for older adults with long term conditions is the basis of effective collaboration that leads to improved health and social outcomes. The international ‘Chronic Care Model’ and other international frameworks will be introduced to assist participants to locate their primary health care practice within the broader health system. This workshop will highlight the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Sustainable Development Goals. Participants will gain an awareness of health inequity and develop confidence, independence and accountability leading to a higher level of professional practice.
