Western Sydney HealthPathways provides health professionals with relevant and practical clinical information on managing medical conditions and local patient referral options.
The dedicated HealthPathways team, in collaboration with local GPs, nurses, medical experts, Western Sydney Local Health District, and the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, continually localise new pathways and review existing pathways to ensure they remain safe and clinically relevant.
There are now three new HealthPathways, which include:
- Sever’s Disease – a common cause of heel pain due to repetitive stress in physically active children aged 8 to 14 years.
- Osgood-Schlatter Disease – a common cause of knee pain and swelling in physically active children aged 11 to 14 years.
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) – a common syndrome of ovarian dysfunction which has health implications across a woman’s lifespan.
These HealthPathways provide front-line clinicians trusted, clear and up-to-date information, assisting GPs in Western Sydney to maintain a high level of service and patients to continue to receive the highest quality care.
Access to HealthPathways has been especially crucial in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Pathway access has increased considerably during this time, with more than 51,071 views of pages on Western Sydney HealthPathways, with 16% of views relating to our COVID-19 Response Package.
We’d like to acknowledge the great work of the Western Sydney HealthPathways team, who led the local adoption of COVID-19 pathways for Western Sydney. They collaborated with neighbouring teams, working with urgency to make these pathways available for health care workers.
