The Staying well with chronic conditions quality improvement guide is designed to support practices to keep their most vulnerable patients well and reduce their likelihood of adverse outcomes.

Vulnerable patients including older patients and patients with chronic and complex conditions benefit from regular, proactive care throughout the year. This guide outlines a simple approach your practice can take to identify your vulnerable patients and provide them with proactive support through the implementation of Sick Day Action Plans.

To further support this work, Brisbane North PHN has also provided a snapshot of annual hospitalisation data in the region. When personalised and regularly reviewed, these action plans are associated with an increase in patient self-efficacy, fewer unplanned hospitalisations and timely contact with a GP or health professional when they need it.

To start using the guide at your practice contact your Primary Care Liaison Officers on 07 3630 7300 or to download the guide here.
