Event Details

In Vivo Academy invites you to the third of the Multimorbidity Webinar Series – “Multimorbidity and frailty” with Dr Jagdeesh Singh Dhaliwal (Clinical Director, Aged Care GP, Melbourne) as presenter and Emeritus Professor Mieke van Driel (General Practice Clinical Unit, The University of Queensland) as Facilitator.

Multimorbidity with frailty is common, and both have been associated with the risk of disability, hospitalisation and mortality and increased health-related costs in the elderly population.(1,2) Age, sex and socioeconomic position are reported risk factors, but management should have a patient-centred, multidisciplinary approach.(3) Learn how to prioritise care decisions and apply strategies that enhance patient–clinician communication.

Please note that this webinar will be accredited by RACGP, ACRRM, and RNZCGP. It is supported by an independent (“at arms-length”) educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim. As such the sponsor is NOT INVOLVED in the selection of faculty, design and content of the activity. In Vivo Academy chose the faculty based on their long experience and expertise on the specific topics. We made sure that they are a combination of academics and practicing clinicians.

In planning the activity, In Vivo Academy conducted a comprehensive needs assessment (including a review of the literature, several surveys from 2019 to 2021 of primary care providers who are our targeted audience, and interviews of experts) to identify knowledge, competence, and practice gaps. The activity was designed to address these gaps and outcomes will be assessed using the Moore Framework.
