    Assisted dying in Victoria - implications for clinicians

    Friday 15 November, 12.00pm - 1.00pm

    On 19 June 2019, legislation which permits voluntary assisted dying came into effect in Victoria. What does this mean for primary practice? During this session, we will examine the law and discuss the implications for GPs and practice nurses.

    Tomorrow’s practice today - how digital innovation is disrupting the delivery of healthcare

    Saturday 16 November, 12.00pm - 1.00pm

    We download results and use computerised notes but disruptive technology has not really hit general practice yet. For example, will you be ready for artificial intelligence (AI) in diagnosis? This session covers how technology can support, not replace personalised care to pave the way for a brighter future for you and your patients.

    Is there a doctor on the plane?

    Sunday 17 November, 12.00pm - 1.00pm

    A call for a doctor to identify themselves on a plane can send shivers down our spine. We want to assist those in need, but fear legal exposure and working without suitable equipment. This session will leave you more confident if the call is made and you are it.
