GPs invited to help evaluate antenatal psychosocial screening tools

The University of Melbourne are currently looking for GPs to participate in a focus group to help evaluate a digital antenatal psychosocial screening tool.

The digital screening and clinical decision support tool aims to help GPs identify and respond to psychosocial risk factors in pregnancy, such as alcohol and substance use, exposure to domestic and family violence, and experiences of poor mental health. Assistance in the project will help ensure it will work well in the busy general practice context.

GPs are required to participate in a 45-60 min focus group evaluation, where they will be shown a demonstration of a prototype antenatal psychosocial screening tool, and then be asked to provide feedback on what works and what wouldn’t work in a general practice context.
