The award winners from this year’s RACGP Conference for General Practice – GP16 – run the gamut of Australian general practice, from those with decades of experience who have helped to advance the way healthcare is delivered in Australia and overseas, to the relative newcomers who are just starting to leave their mark on the profession.
Associate Professor John Litt was the winner of this year’s Rose-Hunt Award, the most prestigious accolade the RACGP bestows on any of its members. Over more than three decades in general practice, Assoc Prof Litt has been involved in clinical practice, academia, teaching, developing and updating many critical RACGP guidelines, and much more. He has always strived to improve patient outcomes and help GPs better implement clinical and prevention activities.
Other RACGP honours awarded at GP16 included the year’s best GP, supervisor, rural GP, registrar, rural registrar and general practice. Each winner’s love of general practice was evident in the hard work and dedication that saw them chosen as among the best in their specialty.
