Statewide Paediatric HealthPathways Project – Phase Two Regional Reference Group

The Victorian PHN Alliance is working with the Victorian Paediatric Clinical Network and Safer Care Victoria’s Paediatric Clinical Network, to translate existing Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) into state-wide paediatric HealthPathways.

These pathways aim to empower primary care clinicians to support patients with low complexity, high volume paediatric conditions, and ultimately deliver better, safer care. For more information on the project, visit https://vphna.org.au/paediatric/

As part of this project, Gippsland PHN recently hosted a Regional Reference Group meeting to review and provide local context to pathways for Anaphylaxis, Adverse Food Reactions, and Eczema.

These pathways are part of a suite of 16 paediatric pathways that will be available in October.
