You should be back into the swing of things after Christmas and the Omicron January surge with borders reopening.
It has been a quiet past 2 years for APS due to Covid restrictions but there have been some developments. Our APS website (auspaediatrics.org.au) has had an update and we would like to get feedback from our members on how to tweak its content.
We are having an executive Zoom meeting shortly to make some plans and complete organization for our AGM. This is planned to coincide with our annual meeting which is planned for April to link with the Hunter Paediatric Society Meeting at Fraser Island.
The 2022 APS diabetes meeting will be a hybrid meeting scheduled to be located in Surfers Paradise on Oct 28/29 October. Save the date!!
The needs of rural paediatricians, including postgraduate education, is ever changing. We are considering conducting a summit on views of regional paediatrician and how APS can better support members. As part of this, we are devising a Survey Monkey to ensure the APS is appropriately representing our members and advocating for better outcomes in regional child health.
I have been quite busy answering inquiries from the APS website particularly around the time of the APS/ISPAD Diabetes workshop that was successfully run last October with organization by Dr Peter Goss. The workshop presentations are now freely available here to members on login.
There have been plenty of RACP matters including the changes in telehealth Medicare item numbers and more recently I have joined the workshop and seminar supporting the RACP “Kids COVID Catch Up Campaign”. Details at kidscatchup.org.au.
