President's Message

Dear colleagues

The current lockdowns serve as a sobering reminder of the current complexity and virulence of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are aware that many of our colleagues in NSW are now once again involved in the critical care of adults with COVID-19 infections. The effects of these events on our children and adolescents will continue well into the future. The RACP and member organisations are currently advocating strongly to government to provide national guidance for management of this pandemic and in particular, protocols for school aged children that ensure the safety of the children, their teachers and the community at large. 

The College has been advocating to raise the age of criminal responsibility at a national and regional level from 10 to 14 years of age. I urge you to throw your support behind these efforts by signing the national Raise the Age petition to increase the momentum for this change. More details can be found elsewhere in this newsletter. Please read, share and help us to get the age raised in line with current medical evidence.

The Chapter of Community Child Health continues to deliver excellent online content as part of their Satellite Webinar Series. Recently, Dr Jeff Goldhagen, Professor of Pediatrics, University of Florida-Jacksonville, and President of the International Society for Social Pediatrics and Child Health, delivered a presentation on ‘Climate Change and Children’, advocating for a Child Rights framework in response to the impact of the climate crisis on children. This great resource is now available for viewing by all College members via RACP Medflix.

I was saddened to hear of the recent passing of Dr Christina Boros. Dr Boros was a highly regarded clinician, academic and researcher with connections throughout the national and international rheumatology community, especially the paediatric rheumatology service in Adelaide, which she managed single-handedly for a decade. She was the Chair of the Australian Paediatric Rheumatology Group and represented the paediatric rheumatology community within the RACP up until her illness prevented her from continuing earlier this year. She was a staunch advocate for young people with rheumatic diseases, and she will be greatly missed by all those who knew her.

Finally, members are reminded that nominations for the Howard Williams Medal close on Tuesday, 10 August 2021. Make sure you don’t miss your chance to nominate a worthy colleague to be acknowledged for their outstanding contribution to improving the health of children and young people in Australia and/or Aotearoa New Zealand.

RACP Governor Macquarie Tower Meeting Rooms in Sydney – New name announcement

We are pleased to announce that the Board has recently approved a proposal from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Committee (ATSIHC) to use the following names for the three College meeting rooms in our space at Governor Macquarie Tower (GMT), Sydney:

Name

Meaning

Pronunciation

Yura Eóra

People or Aboriginal people

(eo-ra)

Nura

Place or country

(no-rar)

Guwing

Sun

(go-ing)

To propose the three names, ATSIHC approached the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council (MLALC), as the traditional custodians of the Gadigal lands on which the building resides, to ensure appropriate cultural protocols and language were used when naming the three GMT rooms. MLALC shared a book, The Sydney Language by Jakelin Troy and suggested the names be sourced from the language outlined in the book. ATSIHC considered this resource and proposed the above names within the themes of people, sun, and earth – representing the Australian Aboriginal flag.

Dependent on COVID-19 restrictions, the MLALC will be invited to a culturally respectful room naming event.

The room names are part of the RACP's work under priority 4 of the Indigenous Strategic Framework to foster a culturally competent college. The RACP will continue to undertake activities that focus on cultural safety for members and staff.

AYAM Committee updates to position statements on confidential healthcare and routine assessment of adolescents and young adults

The Adolescent and Young Adult Committee (AYAMC) has recently completed work on updating two position statements concerning healthcare of adolescents and young adults. I would like to express my appreciation to Dr Bridget Farrant and Professor Rachel Skinner who led this work.

The aim of the Confidential Healthcare for Adolescents and Young Adults policy is to ensure that, where appropriate, confidentiality is assured to adolescents and young adults to enhance their access to healthcare, their engagement with health professionals and their health outcomes.

The College has also released an updated position statement on Routine Adolescent and Young Adult Psychosocial and Health Assessment. There is now greater appreciation that a range of mental health, emotional and behavioural issues affects the health and wellbeing of young people. This position statement is aimed at all primary, secondary and tertiary care physicians and paediatricians who consult with adolescent patients, in particular, those who take on the primary responsibility for the health and wellbeing of the young person (aged 12 to 24).

I encourage you to review the updated position statements.

Associate Professor Simon Denny
Chair, AYAMC

New RACP video series highlights physicians in remote Australian communities

Practising rural and remote medicine offers opportunities, career progression and a lifestyle simply not available in Australia’s big cities.

From today, you can watch a fascinating new series of short videos In our Own Words, about the critical role our Fellows and trainees fulfil in providing healthcare to small towns, the regions and remote Australia, via the Specialist Training Program (STP). 

The STP is a funding initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health.

There are around 900 STP-funded training positions across Australia, managed by 13 medical colleges. The RACP currently manages around 380 positions. 

With funding from the Commonwealth Department of Health, we’re increasing awareness and understanding of the Program.  

Our members tell their own stories, what it has meant to them and the communities they serve.  

We will be releasing these to you weekly over the coming months. The videos will be available on the RACP website, where we have created a new mini-site information about the program.

Advocacy to raise the age of criminal responsibility – at a national and regional level

The RACP continues to advocate for raising the age of criminal responsibility from 10 to 14 years of age in line with medical evidence. We have been advocating on this issue since 2016. The RACP is a member of the steering group for the national campaign to raise the age. RACP members can sign and share the national raise the age petition.

In Western Australia, Social Reinvestment WA is leading a local campaign to raise the age, we encourage all members based in Western Australia to email their local MP on this issue using the webform and support the campaign via social media.

The Northern Territory government has publicly committed to raising the age of criminal responsibility to 12 years of age as per its commitments to implement the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Child Protection and Detention. The RACP is supportive of raising the age, and will work with local stakeholders to encourage that the age of criminal responsibility is raised to 14 instead of 12 years of age.

The ACT government has committed to raising the age to 14 and is undertaking the necessary processes to progress legislation. This change will become law in the second half of 2022.

Advocacy in other regions is underway in collaboration with local groups.

To read previous RACP submissions to the Council of Attorneys-General please visit the RACP website.

Public release of the National Dust Disease Taskforce Final Report

The Australian Department of Health has now released the National Dust Disease Taskforce’s Final Report, which contains seven recommendations. These recommendations focus on work health and safety measures, work health and safety monitoring and compliance, national guidance to identify people at risk, better support for workers, medical, health and other related professionals, a strategic national approach to research and cross-jurisdictional governance mechanism to coordinate responses and report on progress.

The College has welcomed the Taskforce’s Final Report and calls on the Government to adopt all of its recommendations.

The College has previously advocated  for the establishment of a permanent multi-disciplinary group to oversee the implementation of the National Dust Disease Taskforce’s final recommendations. We are pleased to see this reflected in Recommendation 7 of the Taskforce’s Final Report and we have called on the Government to establish this cross-jurisdictional mechanism urgently to ensure the recommended actions in the report are adopted, monitored and progressed in an efficient and coordinated way.

The National Dust Disease Taskforce (the Taskforce) was established by the Federal Government in July 2019 following many months of strong joint advocacy from the College, its Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand. The Taskforce has played a crucial role in driving the development of a national approach for the prevention, early identification, control and management of dust diseases in Australia. Its membership included the following College members: Professor Fraser Brims, Dr Graeme Edwards, Dr Ryan Hoy and Professor Christine Jenkins.

RACP submission to IHPA consultation for the Pricing Framework for Australian Public Hospital Services 2022-23

The RACP’s recent submission to the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) annual Pricing Framework for Australian Public Hospital Services 2022-23 was based on College-wide consultation. The Pricing Framework underpins the national efficient price and national efficient cost determinations for Australian public hospital services. The RACP’s submission provides:

  • physician input on the impact of COVID-19 on the delivery of hospital services
  • future funding models intended to signal a shift from paying for volume of services to paying for value and patient outcomes, avoidable and preventable hospitalisations
  • areas for adjustments to the national efficient price.

In the submission, the College states our support for defining activity, units or ‘episode of care’ less by hospital site location and more by the inclusive and comprehensive treatment of a presenting condition(s). This is in keeping with both the Australian Government and jurisdiction governments’ transition to a more integrated healthcare system.

Queensland Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD) Bill 2021

Earlier this month the RACP made a submission to the Queensland Parliament Health and Environment Committee’s Inquiry into the Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD) Bill 2021. We do not have a single position on VAD, but provided comments to ensure appropriate safeguards and processes if VAD legislation should become operational in Queensland.

Our comments build on an earlier submission on the Queensland Law Reform Commission’s legal framework for voluntary assisted dying consultation paper in November 2020. Both these submissions align with our 2018 Statement on Voluntary Assisted Dying, which was developed following an extensive consultation and drafting process involving a wide range of members, and recognises the divergent views on VAD within the membership.

The Obesity Collective Update

The RACP is a member of The Obesity Collective, which brings together individuals and organisations committed to working together to tackle the obesity challenge with an empathetic and whole of society approach.

This month marks three years since the Collective was launched. During this time it has progressed in a number of priority areas, including research and policy work as part of a campaign on weight stigma, and an activity map of obesity prevention, treatment and advocacy activities across Australia.

Another key component of the Collective was the development of the Obesity Evidence Hub, which identifies, analyses and synthesises evidence on obesity for use in future policy work.

The Collective is also promoting its recent campaign – More than meets the eye. This campaign continues the Collective’s work on weight stigma and plans to share stories of obesity from Australians, along with presenting the science, to help people understand that obesity is complex and impacted by many social, biological and environmental drivers.  

Our work with the Obesity Collective and on obesity more broadly is underpinned by the RACP Position Statement on Obesity – Action to prevent obesity and reduce its impact across the life course.

Pomegranate Health podcast

Ep71: Voluntary Assisted Dying—what have we learned?

In 2017, Victoria was the first state in Australia to pass voluntary assisted legislation and has been followed by Western Australia, Tasmania and now South Australia. Aotearoa New Zealand passed its End-of-life Choice Bill two years ago and it will go live in November. This podcast draws on the experience of some very committed Victorian clinicians who share the lessons they've learned over the last two years about practical implementation of voluntary assisted dying (VAD).

The presenters were recorded at this year’s RACP Congress held in May. Palliative care physician Dr Danielle Ko explained how Austin Health has prepared and supported its healthcare staff through this shift in practice. Palliative care physician Dr Greg Mewitt described the challenge of consulting remotely with patients in regional Victoria. Professor Paul Komesaroff reflected on some other points of friction in Victoria’s law as it stands and the practicalities of medical practice. And Professor James Howe talked of his work as a neurologist in a Catholic healthcare institution, and how tensions over assisted dying had been resolved.

Guests

  • Dr Danielle Ko FRACGP FAChPM (Clinical Ethics Lead, Austin Health; VAD Review Board, Safercare Victoria)
  • Dr Greg Mewett FRACGP FAChPM DRCOG (Ballarat Rural Health; Grampians Regional Palliative Care Team
  • Professor Paul Komesaroff AM FRACP (Alfred Hospital; Monash University)
  • Professor James Howe FRACP (VAD Review Board, Safercare Victoria)
  • Dr George Laking FRACP (Auckland City Hospital; RACP President Aotearoa New Zealand)

How genomics is changing clinical practice webinar

You're invited to the 'How genomics is changing clinical practice' webinar, to be held on Wednesday, 28 July 2021 from 6.30pm to 8pm (AEST), from 8.30pm to 10pm (NZST).

The use of genetics and genomics in medicine is not new. Genetic techniques were first used to diagnose human conditions back in the 1950s with the identification of genetic conditions, such as Down and Turner syndromes. Each year, more Medicare item numbers for genetic and genomic testing are introduced, bringing genomics into mainstream medicine.

In this interactive webinar, clinical geneticists Dr Rani Sachdev and Dr Michel Tchan will describe the practical application of genomic testing in a variety of specialties, including paediatrics, cancer, cardiology and neurology. To provide a practical context, genetic counsellor Ms Elle Martin and paediatrician Dr Chris Elliot will discuss the use of genomic testing in search of a diagnosis for children with global developmental delay/intellectual disability. The webinar will conclude with a live Q&A session.

My Health Record Emergency Access

New guidance is available to assist healthcare providers to understand appropriate use of the My Health Record emergency access function (also known as a ‘break glass’ function).

The online guidance, frequently asked questions and flow chart were developed by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), in collaboration with the Australian Digital Health Agency and a range of stakeholders, including clinicians.

It is important that the Emergency Access function is only used to lessen or prevent a serious threat, as defined in Section 64 of the My Health Records Act 2012. Inappropriate use of Emergency Access can result in a potential breach of the healthcare consumer’s privacy and penalties may apply.

The new guidance outlines when emergency access may be used. Several clinical case studies are provided, together with tips for complying with legislative requirements for emergency access.
