Australian primary care collaboratives program



This program provides general practices and Aboriginal Medical Services with an opportunity to achieve improved patient care for those living with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). It features processes to create and maintain accurate patient information for electronic health records (EHR), to improve chronic disease management and the coordination of care.

The program commences in March 2014 and consists of three national (face-to-face) learning workshops and three virtual learning workshops. The learning workshops provide an opportunity to learn and network with leading experts and peers. Between workshops are activity periods, where participants take what they have learned and adapt and test improvements locally.

Delivered by the Improvement Foundation (IF), this Australian Primary Care Collaboratives (APCC) program will allow participating general practices and Aboriginal Medical Services to receive hands-on support and resources through their Medicare Local and the IF.
