Caring for young people in out of home care – a GP perspective
August 20, 2020
Speaker: Dr Jane Macleod
Children and young people in care are a highly vulnerable group with increased physical, mental and social health needs and with limited access to health care services. Often due to the transient nature of their care, these children are at risk of not getting the early intervention of care they need. There is an urgent need for the GP they see, to expeditiously develop a Health management plan to facilitate early intervention and continuity of care.
