Congratulations to Harriet Hiscock for winning Best Poster in Paediatrics & Child Health at the Royal Australasia College of Physicians Congress 2016!
Harriet's poster entitled "Trends in Paediatric Practice in Australia: 2008 and 2013 National audits from the Australian Paediatric Research Network" reported the main findings from the Children Attending Paediatricians Study (CAPS). This was the second clinical audit completed by the APRN over 5 years.
This poster included a comparison of the trends in clinical practice over a two week period in 2008 and 2013. In 2008, 199 paediatricians from around the country provided information on 8,345 consultations and in 2013 180 paediatricians reported on 7,102 consultations.
We are currently in the process of preparing a manuscript for publication on these findings. For more information on this study please click this link
A big thank you to all our members who completed CAPS and supporting the APRN.
