Prevention & Management of Influenza

Prevention and management of influenza in vulnerable populations in NSW


Time: 7.00-8.00pm

Online Webinar

The influenza season has started early in Australia and is cocirculating with COVID-19. The recent sharp increase in flu cases is accompanied by concerns about low vaccination uptake, especially in the most at-risk populations. Prevention of severe disease in vulnerable populations relies on early immunization and initiation of antiviral medication where appropriate. New resources are available providing guidance on COVID-19 and influenza outbreak management and antiviral treatment/prophylaxis in the aged care population.

Cervical Screening in General Practice

Self-collection eligibility policy change and the intermediate risk pathway


Time: 7.00-8.00pm

Online Webinar

From 1 July 2022, the National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP) will expand Cervical Screening Test sample collection options, offering clinician collection or self-collection as a choice to all people participating in cervical screening. Expanding the option of self-collection to all participants is expected to increase participation in cervical screening, encouraging those who are under-screened to screen. The Cancer Institute NSW and Royal College of General Practitioners are partnering in a one-hour webinar (date) to educate General Practitioners about the change to the self-collection policy and the critical role that General Practitioners play in supporting this change. The webinar will additionally include education on the clinical management of women at intermediate risk in the NCSP.
