Murrumbidgee Healthcare Pathways

Disclaimer: The Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network’s (MPHN) Healthcare Pathways are being developed by local staff and expert clinicians within our region. They are designed as decision-support tools for use primarily by General Practitioners and for clinical education purposes. As such, they are not a substitute for clinical decision making and the ultimate responsibility for clinical management decisions rests with the clinician and their patient. Due to the potential for human error and the rapid evolution of medical knowledge the MPHN as an organisation cannot warrant 100% accuracy of the information contained in the Healthcare Pathways. Every effort is, however, made to ensure that the information is current and consistent with existing national and international guidelines. Be aware that the individuals and organisations referred to in the Healthcare Pathways and the MPHN Health Directory may be incomplete or their contact details outdated. Also their listing does not constitute a recommendation or endorsement of their services by the PHN. The responsibility for the decision to refer to them rests with the clinician. Finally, if you detect any inaccuracies or omissions, please notify the MPHN Quality and Pathways Manager, Narelle Mills on (02) 69233130 or narelle.mills@mphn.org.au
