How to keep informed

Stay up-to-date by viewing our quarterly ANSC e-newsletter. This newletter includes important updates regarding each GP ANSC program and broader antenatal and/or postnatal information. 

How to maintain affiliation/recognition as a ANSC GP  

GPs participating on an ANSC program are expected to be familiar with ANSC guidelines and protocols and complete ongoing educational requirements. These requirements involve the accrual of at least 12 CPD points in either antenatal and/or postnatal specific educational activities over each RACGP triennium. Activitites may include either CPD Accredited Activities (previously Cat 1) and/ or CPD Activities ( previously Cat 2). 

Relevant educational activities can be completed as face-to-face (CESPHN or external events) or as  pdf on-line modules (319 KB) . CESPHN education events for 2021 can be viewed in the Maternal Health Calendar and will also be posted on the events webpage and Sydney Health Weekly

You may wish to forward a copy of your CPD statement to ansc@cesphn.com.au to update your records.
