Gold Coast Health in partnership with Gold Coast Primary Health Network will be delivering the Gold Coast GP Maternity Alignment Program aimed at enhancing the skills and knowledge of local GPs wishing to provide pregnancy care to women birthing at Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH). This program is highly recommended for GPs who are involved in antenatal shared care.
If you have previously attended the Gold Coast GP Maternity Alignment Program in 2021 and 2022, this will be the same workshop.
Alignment 2 will only be available to GPs who have already completed Alignment 1 and will aim to cover perinatal mental health, prescribing in pregnancy and 1st trimester care including miscarriage.
Schedule of upcoming 2024 workshops:
The Gold Coast GP Maternity Alignment Program (GCGPMAP) aims to create an antenatal shared care framework between Gold Coast Health and GPs with:
A package of digital resources will be available including dedicated Antenatal Health Pathways that will outline our updated shared care guidelines, how to manage abnormal findings or results, and contact and referral information.
GPs successfully completing the Program and who provide consent, can have their names added to a public facing webpage acknowledging GPs who have completed the GP Maternity Alignment Program on the Gold Coast.
Step 1. Complete an online questionnaire that will familiarise you with our Gold Coast Maternity Shared Care Guidelines and Antenatal Health Pathways. The link will be emailed once you have registered.
Step 2. Complete a half day GP Alignment workshop (interactive, small group case-based learning).
This is an RACGP approved CPD activity under the RACGP CPD Program.
