Youth Friendly Doctor Training 2017 Program
The YFD Training Program seeks to build the capacity of doctors to communicate more effectively
with young people. With practical sessions delivered by experts, the program also provides
doctors with reference materials, referral links and ongoing support to encompass a holistic youth-friendly practice.
To be accredited as a Youth Friendly Doctor, you must complete both the core module workshops plus one of the elective
workshops. RACGP and ACRRM points will be applied for in 2017.
Rural doctors have the opportunity to participate via the virtual online classroom.
All workshops are held at the AMA (WA)’s Nedlands office. Refreshments from 6pm and workshops commence at
6.30pm sharp. FREE for AMA (WA) members; $50 per workshop for non-members.
Please forward submissions for Greensheet by
4 September for the October 2017 edition.

CTEC Conference: Critical Care & Surgery of the Pregnant Patient.
Our CTEC Conference
is the first of its kind world-wide that focuses upon critical illness in pregnancy. This conference
will focus on the intersection of critical illness, surgery and obstetrics - the "incidentally
pregnant" patient being treated in an unfamiliar setting. This may be an adult tertiary hospital,
rural hospital or pre-hospital setting. The perioperative management of the gravid patient
adds a level of complexity all doctors should have a working knowledge of, introduced here in
a short course format. Topics include: bleeding and clotting disorders, analgesia, airway and
respiratory challenges in pregnancy, imaging in pregnancy, surgery in the pregnant patient,
infections and sepsis in pregnancy, intensive care considerations, perioperative care, seizures
and hypertension in pregnancy. Accreditation: This educational activity will be submitted to
RACS, RACGP, RANZCOG and ACRRM. Venue: University Club of WA, Hackett Drive, Crawley.
Time: 8am-4.20pm. Cost: Doctors $245pp, Nurses & Midwives (limited places) $195pp, Nurse,
