Demystifying Developmental Paediatrics – Academy of Child & Adolescent Health (ACAH) Primary Care Workshop 2023

ACAH  presents its second paediatric workshop targeted to primary care clinicians passionate about child health around Australia.

ACAH is an organisation focusing on advocating for the health needs of newborns, children and adolescents in a cooperative, collegiate environment.

Our workshop focuses on challenging child health topics in primary care, and some of the long-term issues that often you are called on to co-manage whilst waiting for your patients/clients to survive the wait times for public paediatric clinics. We want to answer your burning questions, so will be basing our Q&A on what you want to hear!
