Get ready for some exciting audio content, as we’re in the process of recording a brand-new podcast episode that will soon be making its way to our website for you to enjoy.

As always, we hope you enjoy reading this newsletter. My team is excited to uncover the upcoming highlights as we move towards the end of 2023. As usual, our newsletters aim to keep you informed about the most recent developments, noteworthy updates, special announcements, and engaging discussions pertaining to all things obstetric!

OMEGA-3 Test & Treat Pilot Program

We Need Your Help!

You Can Participate!

If you are in Practice in NALHN, you are invited to participate in the evaluation of some new approaches to support the uptake of the omega-3 test-and-treat program.

The researchers have partnered with GPEx and GP Partners Australia to try and address these barriers, which will include the availability of a SAMSAS digital template for inclusion in practice software, support materials and education about the omega-3 test-and-treat program, as well as the making available omega-3 supplement samples for women who test low in omega-3 fatty acids and are disadvantaged.

We are working with GPEx and SAHMRI, and we request your participation in feedback sessions regarding the utility and acceptance of the omega-3 test-and-treat program. The feedback you provide will be kept confidential. You or your practice will not be identified.
