Abstract

This publication reports on a review of evidence on the impact of Australian wide initiatives which reduce potentially avoidable hospitalisation (PAH). It focuses on three common conditions that result in PAHs: diabetes complications; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and dental problems. Risk factors for PAHs include having an Indigenous background. This population group often experiences difficulties accessing primary health care leading to PAH. The report outlines approaches which can help reduce PAHs.
