What is HealthPathways WA?

Thumbnail to access webinar

HealthPathways WA is a secure web-based portal with information on patient assessment, management and referral pathways to assist clinicians in navigating patients through the complex primary, community and acute health care system in Western Australia. The pathways are developed by General Practitioners (GPs) to be used during consultation but can also be utilised by other health professionals. The content published is developed based off WA guidelines and includes health concerns particularly prevalent among the population of WA.

Dr Sue Jackson, HealthPathways WA Lead Clinical Editor, presented the RACGP webinar video 'Creating Effective HealthPathways' which provides additional information on the program.
