General Practice and Chronic disease

Chronic Disease Management in General Practice involves appropriate prevention, early identification and best practice management strategies. General practitioners and their staff are usually the first point of contact in the health system and play a key role in the primary intervention, prevention, diagnosis and management of chronic. Preventive health assessment items were found to be undersubscribed, ranging from 6 – 20% in eligible patients. A recent survey was conducted to provide baseline data on chronic disease management (CDM). This survey included primary care physicians in 11 countries thus allowing international comparisons. About 63% of general practitioners reported significant changes that are required to make chronic disease management work better. In the study conducted by health authorities, the percentage of people suffering from long-term health conditions were as follows, 14.8% suffering with arthritis, 13.6% with mental and behavioural conditions, 10.2% with asthma, 4.7% with heart diseases. Some estimates suggest that the cost of potentially preventable hospital admissions from chronic disease is $2 billion each year. The analysis of 11,103 patients with asthma in the Medical Director data indicated that only 4.1 per cent had spirometry measures in 2013-14.24 similarly, for patients with COPD (3,646) only 4.6 per cent had spirometry measurements recorded. Chronic diseases are hard to cure, so it is better to prevent them when possible. To study more, visit General Practice Doctors Meet
