GPS²: Supporting Treating Doctors to Provide Optimal Medical Management

mlcoa Tasmania hosted a breakfast event introducing our new GPS2 service to an audience of local GPs and mlcoa clients at Rydges Hotel Hobart. The presentation titled, GPS²: Supporting Treating Doctors to Provide Optimal Medical Management, was given by a panel of speakers comprising mlcoa’s Rosanna Conti, National Quality Manager; Dr Ramsey Jabbour, Occupational Physician; and Dr Frank Chow, Psychiatrist.

The GPS2 ‘specialist opinion’ service is a clinical advisory service which links General Practitioners and their patients to a network of highly reputable, practicing and experienced Specialists for best care management advice and guidance. 

The presentation commenced with Rosanna discussing the key objectives, benefits and features of the service to an engaged audience who asked questions throughout making the session very interactive. Dr Jabbour elaborated further by explaining when to refer to the GPS2 service and provided a case study to illustrate the benefits of using the service. The session was rounded out with a psychiatric case study presented by Dr Chow.

Positive feedback was given at the end of this event by attendees, with comments such as:

“Very informative session”

“It gives good insight and understanding about the issues of injury and psych management”

“Very interested”
