Your input invited on resource for senior drivers
A draft resource has been developed for senior drivers living in NSW. The resource aims to provide senior drivers with guidance and support to make informed decisions about driving. You’re invited to provide your views and opinions on the new resource. Your feedback will be used to improve the resource so that it is relevant and useful to NSW senior drivers.

Are you interested in contributing to cancer in primary care research?
PC4, the Primary Care Collaborative Cancer Clinical Trials Group, is undertaking a prioritisation study aiming to explore the views of different stakeholders to identify their perspective on what the top research priorities should be in the field of cancer in primary care research. The group is conducting a survey which should take less than 10 minutes to complete and will give you an opportunity to advocate for the areas of cancer in primary care research you feel should be addressed most urgently.

Supporting the mental health of mothers in pregnancy and after birth
The NSW Ministry of Health (MoH) is conducting a review of the SAFE START program. SAFE START comprises the psychosocial assessments and depression screening conducted by midwives at the booking visit, and child and family health nurses following birth. From this screening women are offered a range of referral options to meet their needs. Western Sydney University (WSU) is undertaking the review for the MoH and is seeking the perspectives and experiences of GPs in relation to the SAFE START program – mental health and support for social needs. WSU will hold online focus group forums with GP representatives across NSW, potentially during the week of 29 March to 5 April. If you would be interested in participating in an online focus group, email email@example.com
Improving care for patients who are stressed, anxious or depressed as a result of their work
Monash University is inviting GPs who would like to improve their care of patients with work-related mental health conditions to join a new NHMRC-funded partnership trial called Implementing work-related Mental health guidelines in general PRactiCE (IMPRovE). GPs who complete two surveys (one now and one in 18 months), attend an academic detailing session and attend a pre-specified webinar will receive $800 plus either 40 RACGP CPD points or 8 ACRRM points at the conclusion of the trial, and their practices will receive $500. Over an 18-month period, GPs who are randomised to receive the intervention will receive tailored educational outreach and be offered engagement and support through an online community of practice. GPs who are randomised to the control group will be offered key components of the intervention when the trial concludes.
