Here’s why RACGP members are going to GP16

Still deciding whether to go to GP16?

We spoke to some RACGP members to find out why they’re going.

Dr Melanie Considine is an advocate of rural general practice and believes in life-long learning. She’ll participate with 1500 other healthcare professionals in a range of active learning modules (ALMs), short paper presentations and workshops at GP16. These activities will help her fulfil her Quality Improvement and Continuing Professional Development (QI&CPD) requirements. She says “I am so looking forward to attending the mothers and babies ALM, in addition to many other educational sessions at GP16.” Dr Considine continued to say “It isn’t often that we GPs have the opportunity to participate in such a high volume of quality learning opportunities at one time!”

After working in general practice for 20 years, Dr Claudio Villella is excited about presenting to GPs at GP16 and is passionate about assisting young people with mental health challenges who are not responding to treatment. He says “It is always rewarding to both facilitate and partake in the rich and informative discussions that are generated through these quality education activities.”

Associate Professor Brad Murphy is a GP and Chair of RACGP Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health. He highlights the benefits of attending the annual conference, saying “The world is a rapidly changing place and GP16 is the place to keep in touch!” He believes GP16 is a great avenue to engage in the latest education opportunities and to share experiences with trusted colleagues.
