Acute Rheumatic Fever and Rheumatic Heart Disease | Online
September 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Victorian Department of Health and Western and South East Public Health Units are hosting this educational webinar and Q&A session on acute rheumatic fever (ARF) and rheumatic heart disease (RHD). They will cover clinical aspects, care pathways, resources and the public health response.
The webinar is intended for primary care providers (including GPs, nurse practitioners and Aboriginal health workers), cardiologists, paediatricians, urgent and emergency care providers, community workers and any others who may provide care or services to people affected by ARF or RHD.
ARF and RHD were made notifiable conditions in Victoria on 31 July 2023, in an effort to improve outcomes of these preventable conditions which disproportionately affect certain populations, particularly Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Pacific Islander people.
