What has the program achieved?
Murrumbidgee Medicare Local has with engaged six local General Practices in the Murrumbidgee Medicare Local to support the implementation of the Otitis Media Guidelines. Practices include Glenrock Medical Centre (Wagga Wagga), Riverina Medical and Dental Aboriginal Corporation (Wagga Wagga), Murrumbidgee Medical & Primary Care Centre (Leeton), Leeton Family Clinic, Griffith Aboriginal Medical Service and KRS Health Family Medical Practice (Wagga Wagga).
Each General Practice is participating in implementation of the guidelines for our target age group 0-4 year old Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children. The Otitis Media Guidelines and Care for Kids Resources Kits have been distributed to all General Practices.
The Benchmarque Group with support from Murrumbidgee Medicare Local will be delivering a Course in Aural (Ear) Health on Wednesday February 6th 2013. Due to an overwhelming response to the course, the opportunity will exist for a further course to be held later in the year.
