Perinatal Depression & Anxiety – Dr Nicole Highet
Depression and anxiety in the perinatal period is a significant problem for many Australian mothers, but how easy are these symptoms to identify in primary care?
Early identification and intervention from frontline health professionals such as GPs and practice nurses can make a huge difference in the mental health and wellbeing trajectory of mothers with this condition. Dr Nicole Highet will cover the evidence-based resources designed to assist health professionals to better identify and manage people with this common problem.
DOAC Dosing in Special Situations – Renal Impairment, Liver Disease and Obesity – Dr Ronald Castellino
Inappropriate DOAC dosing is a common problem, leading to either increased risk of stroke or of iatrogenic bleeding. It’s important to recognise which patients require reduced dosage, such as those with impaired renal clearance, as well as those who are likely to be undertreated. Dr Ronald Castellino will describe the various scenarios in which over- and under-dosing might occur, and what GPs can do to optimise the dosage in view of the specific clinical characteristics of each patient.
