Cremorne GP Group


DATE: The first group for 2017 is meeting on 28 February at 6pm. The GP support group meets on the last Tuesday of every month from 6pm.

VENUE: Northside Cremorne


GPs see many challenging complex cases, and can sometimes be unsupported in managing this. We recognise that part of looking after our patients means also looking after ourselves and developing skills to manage these “heart sink”, complex and challenging situations.

We also recognise there are few support groups specifically for this purpose in NSW.

GPs bring complex and challenging cases to discuss during the meetings, covering situations such as:

  • “heart sink” patients
  • substance issues
  • personality issues
  • anxiety, depression, psychosis
  • complex psycho-social situations
  • safety

The focus is not solely on the complexity of the case, but also explores the impact that managing these issues has on practitioners.

FACILITATOR: Psychiatrist Dr Joe Dunn, who provides valued specialist input.

TARGET AUDIENCE: GPs, including GP registrars.

CPD: CPD points for small group learning are available.

The Advance Project


PROVIDER: The Advance Project is in conjunction with Hammond Care, Care Search, The University of Sydney, The University of Queensland, UTS, The University of Wollongong, Austin Health Ongoing

DATE: Ongoing


Advance is a free toolkit of screening and assessment tools and a training package, specifically designed to support nurses in Australian general practices to work with general practitioners (GPs) to initiate advance care planning (ACP) and palliative care in everyday general practice.

The Advance Toolkit consists of six screening and assessment tools and a Guide, which indicates how to implement the screening tools in a systematic way in general practice. The toolkit was informed by a literature review of the best available evidence about tools to support palliative care and ACP in general practice, as well as input from our expert advisory group and feedback from general practice nurses, general practitioners and Carers Australia.

Advance aims to enable better care outcomes in Australian GP practices through:

  • enabling earlier consideration and uptake of ACP
  • enabling more efficient use of GP and nurse time in providing palliative and supportive care
  • enabling more appropriate and timely referrals to specialist palliative care services if required
  • increasing confidence and comfort levels for general practice nurses (GPNs) in initiating conversations with patients and their carers about screening for supportive care needs and ACP

What are the benefits of Advance for general practice?
The Advance training package will help general practice nurse(s) to work with GPs to initiate ACP and, where appropriate, palliative care for elderly and/or chronically ill patients within the practice.

This will:

  • Help break down some of the barriers to ACP in general practice
  • Enable the practice to more efficiently:
    • identify patients who might be at risk of deteriorating and dying
    • assess and address the supportive care needs of patients who might be at risk of deteriorating and dying
    • assess and address the needs of carers of patients who might be at risk of deteriorating and dying
  • Help identify patients who might benefit from early referral to specialist palliative care services.

HETI – Mental Health Higher Education and Training in Psychiatric Medicine


PROVIDER: Health Education and Training Institute (HETI)

DATE: Ongoing


The NSW Institute Of Psychiatry has redesigned its former mental health higher education programs into two new contemporary higher education frameworks, commencing in February 2017. The frameworks of Psychiatric Medicine and Applied Mental Health Studies are cutting edge and will enable mental health practitioner students to study in inter-professional courses, with grounded application to their varied areas of mental health practice.

The Psychiatric Medicine Framework provides an innovative approach to general practitioner mental health education as this course has been developed to provide learning pathways for medical practitioners in their respective fields.

The Psychiatric Medicine Framework facilitates inter-professional collaboration and offers students the opportunity to study alongside and learn from other medical specialists. This includes:

  • General Practitioners
  • Psychiatry Trainees
  • Rural and Remote Medicine Specialists

While the Psychiatric Medicine course is designed to meet the Stage 1 and 2 course requirements of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College Psychiatrists (RANZCP) for psychiatry trainees, all teaching and learning assessments are focused on application to respective medical practice. The developed therapeutic electives will ensure that the learning needs of General Practitioners and Rural and Remote Medicine Specialists are similarly met. The learning pathways for General Practitioners and for Rural and Remote Medicine Specialists have been designed in consultation with the Royal Australian College General Practitioners (RANZCP) and with the Australian College Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and with reference to their curricula.

There are scholarships available for NSW based general practitioners to support their study in Psychiatric Medicine. Information on these opportunities are found here.

HETI has recently been registered as a higher education provider by the national regulatory body that oversights higher education, the Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA). This achievement was made possible by the transition of NSW Institute of Psychiatry (NSWIOP) to become a Mental Health Portfolio of HETI. This transition is expected to be completed by 1 January 2017. It is a first in Australia for a state health entity to be registered and has some significant opportunities for developing learning pathways for the health workforce.
