This event is suitable for GPs, practice nurses, allied health practitioners, early childhood nurses and lactation consultants.

Overview

Patients affected with difficulties during the first 1,000 days of life are complex, multilayered and require a multidisciplinary approach.

Primary care clinicians have a key role in assisting families during the first year of life. Services for young children and their families are often fragmented and difficult to access in regional and rural Australia, and parents often report receiving conflicting advice from varying practitioners.

This multidisciplinary event offers evidence based information that will assist practitioners to offer best possible care for young children and their families.

Fran Chavasse, Senior Educator from Tresillian will be presenting, with a panel of subject matter experts in attendance to answer questions and specific local needs.
