Therapeutic Guidelines Medical Advisor, Professor Rob Moulds, presented at the Internal Medicine Organisation of the Pacific meeting in Fiji in August 2016.
Erin Nunan, the Developing Countries Program Manager also attended the meeting on behalf of the TG Foundation, and together they presented a workshop on Guidelines in Pacific Island Countries.
This was an important opportunity because they were able to share how the TG Foundation is able to assist with the development, promulgation and evaluation of local guidelines.
The meeting presented an excellent forum for the internal medicine specialists to consult with their colleagues, share experiences and hear about new advances in medicine relevant to their work in isolated, and often very resource poor environments.
The meeting was invaluable because the internal medicine specialists in the Pacific Island countries were made aware of the Therapeutic Guidelines Foundation and Developing Countries Program (and Erin received valuable feedback on how the physicians viewed the place of guidelines, and the barriers in each different country to guideline development and implementation).
