HealthPathways Melbourne has been positively received at Austin Health’s Grand Rounds. Dr Geoff Broomhall (HealthPathways Melbourne GP Clinical Editor) and Stuart Wilson (HealthPathways Coordinator) presented to Austin Health specialists to showcase the HealthPathways Melbourne website, the goals of the program in helping reduce avoidable hospital admissions and ED presentations and how Austin Health staff can participate in the pathway development process.
There was a lot of interest from various disciplines wanting to contribute to pathway development in particular respiratory, older persons and orthopaedics.
While work is in progress to expand HealthPathways Melbourne content, GPs in the north, west and outer east of the EMPHN catchment can still access the following:
State-wide pathways such as Immunisation, Zika, Certificate of Death, Hepatitis C, Travel Vaccination, Advance Care Planning
Forms and resources including Digital Health, Organ and Tissue Donation, Multipurpose Taxi Program, Interpreter Services
Assessment and management advice across various conditions including Women’s Health, Respiratory, Cardiology, Orthopaedics, Gastroenterology and Diabetes.
