Chronic Disease Management
Optimising Chronic Disease Control
Chronic disease management is a particular focus of our practice and many patients have had their chronic illnesses attended to by this practice for more than 30 years. These include asthma, chronic airway disease, diabetes, heart disease, osteoarthritis and others. The practice also actively encourages multidisciplinary management of chronic diseases for the most optimal outcome and engages a nurse to facilitate chronic disease management plans for patients who meet eligibility criteria to allow them to optimise control of their chronic diseases through consultation and comanagement with allied health professionals. Please enquire with your doctor regarding eligibility if you are interested.
Optimising Your General Health
Health guidelines indicate that an annual health assessment for patients over 75 years old as well as those between 45 and 50 years old assist in optimising health through the early detection of health problems such as prediabetes, early hearing and visual difficulties. The practice employs a nurse to offer this service to patients, so that a thorough, detailed assessment can be provided which then supplements the doctor’s ongoing medical care. Please ask your doctor about eligibility and for further information.
Taking Care Of Your Mental Health
Mental health issues affect more than 15 % of the population. Our practice is committed to optimising the mental health of our patients, with scope for patients to consult with our resident mental health social worker, Mrs Quyen Mai, for psychological issues, with a large majority of patients eligible for bulkbilled consultations through medicare's mental health care initiatives. Ask your doctor for further details.
