HealthInfoNet Cafe

The GPET Convention attracted around over 600 delegates from Australia and New Zealand, including GPs, registrars, medical educators, practice managers, supervisors and many more.

Kathy Ride and Stephanie Colbert from the HealthInfoNet conducted a session at the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Educators and Medical Educators Workshop, and ran a ClinicalInfoNet cafe. There was considerable interest in the new ClinicalInfoNet website, which most delegates saw as a potential useful tool for the prevention and management of chronic disease.

The 2013 Convention theme was Mining for gold in general practice education which focused on continual exploration for the best methods of training; delivery of quality supervision and resources; and delving into the research which provides the evidence-base for the medicine being practiced and the training being delivered.
