The session will discuss how health professionals may navigate in our current health system towards a holistic approach in patient centred care through appropriate screening and referral in relation to oral health.  Current evidence indicates a strong link between oral health and many diseases including diabetes, dementia, depression, not to mention cancers and aspiration pneumonia.  Oral health for some reason has been treated separately both through the funding model and within The Australian health system.

It is the preeminent West Australian Health Translation Network (WAHTN) event of the year. The Conference is an excellent example of cross-sector collaboration in Western Australia.  It  brings  together international luminaries with research leaders from universities and research institutes in the State and provides an opportunity for local researchers to showcase their own research and network with a wide range of specialists. 

The unusual nature of Science on the Swan is that each year it addresses different areas of science often with new supporters and delegates. This year’s theme is ‘Driving Translational Research - Embedding Research and Innovation in Health Care’.  The Conference will showcase the very best of research and scientific endeavour in Western Australia; covering a mix of fundamental, biomedical, clinical, health and social science.

The relationship between translational research and the community it addresses, is a bridge to sometimes extraordinary outcomes. Science on the Swan presents a unique opportunity to hear presentations and discussions on current results and developments in translational research.

With the current Covid-19 situation we've had numerous requests from medical professionals (GPs, Nurses, Specialists, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists) to have some Medicinal Cannabis education online, as opposed to face-to-face. In response to this we’ve created a 1-hour (free) webinar that introduces Medicinal cannabis and goes through the patient to script process.

Currently the TGA policy is that any person that has had a chronic condition for more than 3 months and has failed 1st line treatment may apply for Medicinal Cannabis. You may have patients who have unsuccessfully tried a number of medications to treat their chronic conditions and are running out of options. This is where medicinal cannabis can make a real difference to patient wellbeing and quality of life.

If you're interested in receiving some general education on medicinal cannabis from the comfort of your own home or office, please join us for a 1-hour webinar to learn the step-by-step process to obtaining Medicinal Cannabis for your appropriate patients. 

 

We'll cover:

· About Medicinal Cannabis and how it works

. Which types of patients are eligible?

· Clinical assessment of patient

· Product selection

. Safety Data

· Contraindications to Medicinal Cannabis

· What to include in the patient consultation

· The TGA application process via the Special Access Scheme (SAS)

· Next steps after the application is approved

· Monitoring process and dosing options

 

Webinar Available dates and times 

· March 26th QLD - 8pm (9pm VIC)

· April 2nd QLD - 8pm (9pm VIC)

· April 9th 8pm (EST)

· April 16th 8pm (EST)

 

If you can’t make the above times and dates, we are more than happy to provide a one on one online presentation at your convenience.  Only for Registered Australian Healthcare Professionals

End of Life Law for Clinicians 

End of Life Law for Clinicians (‘ELLC’) is a free national training program for clinicians, medical students, nurses and allied health professionals about the law at end of life. ELLC aims to improve participants’ knowledge and clinical practice to enhance their capacity to manage legal issues in end of life care. The program has been developed by the Queensland University of Technology, and is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health. We attach a Project Overview and flyer about the Project. 

Research shows clinicians have critical legal knowledge gaps, and a strong desire to know more about end of life law to better support dying patients and avoid legal risk. ELLC seeks to address these issues by delivering 10 free online training Modules on end-of-life and palliative care law across all Australian States and Territories, and  22 case-study based workshops across Australia (in 2019 and early 2020).
