Coming home: primary health care reform in Australia
- Courtyard Room, Park House
- Lectures Talks and Workshops, Research, Social Sciences
Australian primary care has undergone considerable reform in recent years to enable more patient led, community orientated care to become a reality. A key development has been the introduction of the health care home model in which a multi-disciplinary team seeks to provide holistic and co-ordinated care for an identified population. This is similar to the principles underpinning Multispeciality Community Providers and Primary Care Home developments in England.
This seminar will share practice and research insights from health care home implementation in Australia. Speakers will be Professor Claire Jackson (Director, Centres for Primary Care Reform Research Excellence & Past President, Royal Australian College of General Practitioners) and Caroline Nicholson (Director, Mater UQ Centre for Primary Health Care Innovation).
