Chronic Disease Management
Chronic Disease Management starts with looking after yourself properly, even if you have got no problems at all.
Some of it might be common sense. The benefits of a healthy diet, healthy sleep patterns, regular exercise, and a drug-free existence are essentially true for us all. And, if you are looking for the best possible advice on any given subject, it is our job to supply it as well.
There are no prizes for guessing. Every single important aspect of healthy living is an integral part of managing chronic disease.
It is also understood. The earlier you identify and treat problems, the better you are likely to do.
An enormous component of our Chronic Disease Management Program is aimed at those who are known to be or at increased risk of developing chronic disease. Services supplied at no cost to our Medicare patients include;
- Health Care Assessments which, to us, implies everything is properly documented
- GP Management Plans, which imply that your doctor has assessed your particulars and put forward a health care plan for your future
- GP Mental Health Care Plans, which imply your doctor has assessed your particulars and put forward a plan for maximising your mental health for the future
- GP Management Plan Reviews, which can be quarterly, at the discretion of your treating doctor
- GP Mental Health Care Plan Review, which can be quarterly, at the discretion of your doctor
- Team Care Arrangements which are designed to maximise your access to a multi-disciplinary allied health care team
Do not be surprised if we do not adopt a flippant attitude to your health.
It is our job not to do so.
You can initiate a Chronic Disease Management Plan with your doctor. Or, your doctor might suggest it to you.
Our Health Care Assessments, GP Management Plans, GP Management Plan Reviews, GP Mental Health Care Plans, GP Mental Health Care Plans, and Team Care Arrangements are available from your usual doctor, at no cost to you, with a valid Medicare Card, to help manage and mitigate the effects of chronic disease.
