This clinical network relates to the clinical care and pathways for people experiencing unintended pregnancy and abortion in rural Victoria. Areas of focus include case studies related to medical abortion, uptake of effective contraception post abortion, and service system development.
Participants include General Practitioners, practice nurses, nurse practitioners, Obstetricians & Gynaecologists, practice managers, researchers, and specialist abortion providers.
The network meetings are held quarterly using video-conferencing software. RACGP points are allocated to members for each meeting attended.
An advisory committee determines the content and agendas for the network to ensure relevancy for rural clinicians and to respond to emerging issues and developments in clinical practice. Dr Paddy Moore, Head of the Abortion and Contraception Service, Royal Women’s Hospital is the clinical lead for the network.
