Webinar: MBS Item Numbers for Older Persons in the Community Including Case Conferencing

Wed 19th October @ 7:00 pm

Sydney North Health Network (SNHN) invites local GPs, Nurses, and Practice Managers/Staff to a webinar aimed at providing an overview of the Benefits to patient outcomes of using case conferencing and the MBS items available to support and provide care to the elderly population (living in the community, not those in residential aged care.

The programs focus on identifying health concerns within the elderly and providing support through referrals to allied health services appropriate to the person’s needs.

GPs and Practice Nurses/Support staff will learn how to make time to ‘book in case conferencing’ to utilise item numbers and improve patient outcomes.

Do you have a high volume of older patients that keep presenting to hospital?

SNHN have two services that can complement a GPs work in managing older people in the community:

– Geriatrician outreach to primary care service (reserved for GPs that have older cohort that keep representing to hospital) and
– Care coordination service for older people (again reserved for the above)
