Overview

This event will provide participants with important updates to the National Immunisation Program Schedule delivered by Carolyn Lloyd, Immunisation Coordinator from the North Coast Public Health Unit. Updates will also include vaccine cold chain management, practice auditing processes for cold chain management and current recommendations for immunisation in pregnancy.

Measles cases are rising globally and the number of measles related deaths in 2018 was 140,000, with the majority being under the age of 5 years. This event will include a measles case study with interactive panel discussion on the recognition and management of measles in a society where the disease was seldom seen in recent years due to immunisation.

Overview

Diagnosing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children can be challenging and requires a multidisciplinary team approach from initial presentation to diagnosis and subsequent management.

Facilitated by Dr Nispa Krongkaew, this interactive workshop will bring together an expert panel consisting of a GP, paediatrician, child psychologist and psychiatrist and follow the journey of an early primary school aged child where concerns about behaviour have been raised by his class teacher.

This case study will be explored in a Q&A style presentation and attendees will have the opportunity to participate and contribute their knowledge and experience during the discussion.

Learning Outcomes

By attending this workshop, participants will have increased their confidence, knowledge and skills to enable them to:

  • Recognise how children with ADHD may present in general practice.
  • Develop a framework in considering differential diagnoses.
  • Refer appropriately to local services available for assessment and management.
  • Explain how other clinicians contribute to the management of ADHD in a multidisciplinary team approach.
