Opportunity to strengthen paediatric care at your practice

An exciting new opportunity to participate in a new paediatric care trial project – SUSTAIN. This new trial project is building on our current Strengthening Care for Children (SC4C) trial.

SUSTAIN offers the opportunity for GPs to obtain direct paediatrician support through online co-consultation and case discussions, and access to Child Health Program  (formerly Diploma of Child Health) free of charge.

We will be testing a new virtual model of care aimed at increasing GP confidence and knowledge in paediatric care and reduce general practice paediatric referrals to hospital emergency and outpatient clinics.

The study is being run in collaboration with UNSW, Sydney Children Hospital Network (SCHN), Sydney Child Health Program and CESPHN.

We are seeking Expression of Interest (EOI) from six practices within central and eastern Sydney regions to participate. The SUSTAIN trial will run for 12 months in your practice.

Current practices participating in SC4C will not be able to enrol in the SUSTAIN study.
