Good Quality Primary Care

Prevention and management of chronic disease in primary care is not easy. It requires sustained effort by people with chronic conditions working in partnership with a team of health professionals. The role of GPs is vital. Care must be planned
rather than reactive; it must focus on the patient, rather than on health professionals, and it must focus on outcomes.


Avoidable Hospital Admissions cost the Australian taxpayer $322 million per year.

“Each year there are more than a quarter of a million admissions to hospital for health problems that potentially could have been prevented. Yet each year the government spends at least $1 billion on planning, coordinating and reviewing chronic disease management and encouraging good practice in primary care”

Medications management underpins better health outcomes for patients with chronic disease.

“A Domiciliary Medication Management Review (DMMR) (Item 900), also known as Home Medicines Review, is intended to maximise an individual patient’s benefit from their medication regimen, and prevent medication-related problems through a team approach, involving the patient’s GP and preferred community pharmacy or accredited pharmacist.”

Dept of Health, item 900,DMMR   1 November 2015

“The goal of a DMMR is to maximise an individual patient’s benefit from their medication regimen, and prevent medication-related problems through a team approach, involving the patient’s GP and preferred community pharmacy. It may also involve other relevant members of the health care team, such as nurses in community practice or carers.”

“Home Medicines Reviews have been designed to enhance the quality use of medicines and reduce the number of adverse medicine events, by assisting consumers to better manage and understand their medicines through a medication review conducted by an accredited pharmacist in the patient’s home.”

“The evidence shows that a consistent approach to clinical care
pathways for specific chronic diseases can make a real difference
to outcomes. And for that, we need much greater investment in
supporting service development and innovation in primary care.”
