Recommended For

Health Professionals in the Adelaide Metropolitan Area


Who doesn’t enjoy a well- constructed smorgasbord? This 6- hour workshop aims to give all primary health providers the opportunity to expand their current level of knowledge and skills across a number of chronic diseases.
This workshop provides 5 separate sessions covering some of the major chronic condition groups identified by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW). These include:
osteoporosis, chronic kidney disease, iron deficiency, chronic mental health disorders and their interaction with physical health, and back pain (mechanical).
Each of these conditions have been selected because they are common, pose significant health problems, and in some instances, action can be taken to prevent their occurrence.

Current and new referral pathways will also be discussed in each session and are supported by an exhibition of pathway providers.
