Managing chronic disease is an ongoing issue in General Practice. As the number of patients presenting with chronic disease rises, so too do administration costs and government requirements.
For this White Paper, we’ve used data from our General Practice Research Network (GPRN) to analyse trends in chronic disease and combined this with a survey of more than 320 clinicians from across Australia, to uncover their most pressing challenges.
The survey identified clinicians’ biggest concern is engaging patients to manage their chronic conditions. More than 70 per cent of clinicians are creating more chronic disease management plans than they used to, with almost 40 per cent creating care plans every day.
