Integration of General Practice and Chronic Care

GM Consult has been retained by the NSW Health Department to identify strategies adopted by Area Health Services to engage GPs and Divisions to improve the continuity of care for patients with chronic diseases.  

The challenges and barriers faced by Area Health Services, Divisions and GPs of working together will also be identified through peer-reviewed and grey literature.  GM Consult will propose strategies for meeting the challenges of engaging and working in partnership with GPs and Divisions, to improve the care of patients with chronic diseases.  Gilli Appleby, GM Consult’s principal health care management consultant, will be managing this landmark study.
