It is estimated that one in ten patients in any general practice is a carer. Carers provide a vital role, and enable patients to maintain their in dependence, wellness and quality of life. However, carers themselves can experience a range of negative health, social and financial impacts as a result of their caring role.

The Victorian carer strategy 2018-2022, developed with input from 1,500 carers, found that many carers will spend lots of their time in healthcare settings but will rarely have their own health needs identified or addressed.

The Carer Awareness in General Practice is an education kit that offers guidance for GPs to identify and support patients who are carers. Education covers recognition of the carer role, identifying and supporting carer needs and involving the carer in patient care. This education is accredited for RACGP and ACRRM professional development, provided when you complete all three short webinars and the associated survey.
