    The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that we have had to step away from ‘business as usual’ in primary care and find alternative ways to share information and communicate.

    In this webinar, Australian GP Dr Amandeep Hansra and UK GP Dr David Triska, will share their experiences of implementing telehealth (phone, online and video consultations) and provide practical tips and advice based on their first-hand experiences.

    This session is aimed at clinicians and will cover a range of issues related to preparing for and implementing telehealth, including:
    • Engaging with staff and patients
    • Redesigning workflow
    • Potential modalities
    • Overcoming challenges
    • Tools and technology, and
    • Lessons learned.

    This webinar is proudly bought to you by the Digital Health CRC in collaboration with Curtin University and La Trobe University.

    WA Primary Health Alliance shapes, strengthens and sustains a health system that works for people.

    Our role is to simplify and increase access to primary healthcare by planning, guiding and directing investment towards important services. We listen to local communities to understand who they are, their unique health needs, and how their world is changing.

    We then identify priorities, link services and fund options for better primary healthcare.

    As part of the Australian Government’s Primary Health Network initiative, we operate across the state, improving access to healthcare closer to home for those at risk of poor health outcomes.

    In the Goldfields, we are funding local health providers to deliver primary health services and activities. All services will operate in a collaborative and coordinated manner with clearly identified referral pathways.

    By partnering with community, service providers, GPs and allied health professions, we work to deliver better health, together.
