TUESDAY 5 MAY 2020

Congress theme: Balancing medical science with humanity

Tuesday Sub-topic: The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) has made the decision to cancel RACP Congress 2020 and postpone the Convocation Ceremony, which were scheduled for May 2020. These difficult decisions were not taken lightly. Considering the global repercussions of COVID-19, as physicians it is our responsibility to put the safety of our members and the community we serve above all else. We are currently looking at alternative options for delivering the Congress 2020 program and will provide an update on this as soon as we are able. Any enquiries can be directed to racpcongress@racp.edu.au.

Emerging role of microbiome

The Microbiome describes the genome of all the microorganisms that live in or on vertebrates. Emerging research and evolving technology focuses on the intestinal ecosystem and body surfaces in general. We will explore how our environment influences the expression of the microbiome and how the microbiome influences human health and disease.

Support of adults with disabilities – health reform, consumers and clinicians

Adult medicine physicians are increasingly called upon to support patients with complex disabilities and their carers in the community and hospital. Participants will have the opportunity to better understand the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and how they can better advocate for their patients. The challenges facing people living with disability in negotiating NDIS and the health system more generally will be highlighted. Finally, pragmatic advice will be provided in how we can better care for people with complex care needs associated with a dual diagnosis of mental illness and intellectual disability.

Complexity in clinical practice

Summary:

Dr Michael MacDowell- Complexity in clinical practice

The evidence base that guides medical practice is built on research that, by definition, answers problems that are answerable. Challenges that arise in clinical practice, by contrast, may involve complexity where the recursive interactivity of contributing components prevents quantitative evaluation. Complexity arises inherent to the situation. It is not due to clinical inadequacy. It will not be resolved with additional assessment.

This talk introduces complexity as a necessary consideration in clinical practice, and offers approaches guided by how other systems (e.g. business administration) address this challenge.
