PRACTICAL TOOLS FOR TACKLING HEART HEALTH ACROSS YOUR PRACTICE POPULATION

Monday 6 June 2022

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is responsible for one in four of all deaths in Australia despite being largely preventable.

Whilst there is an expectation on GPs to perform more heart health checks, practices have been experiencing barriers including competing demands, variable consumer engagement and unprofitable business models.

  • The launch of a quality improvement guide for general practices
  • A cardiology update on investigating, calculating, and managing CVD risk
  • A discussion about access to cardiology support in a patient-centred medical home model
  • An introduction to a population health evaluation study and opportunities to participate in research
  • A discussion about tips and tools for successfully implementing a heart health check initiative in general practice, including ways to utilise Heart Foundation resources

Learning Outcomes:

  • BE CONFIDENT WITH THE LATEST ADVICE FOR GENERAL PRACTITIONERS ABOUT CVD RISK PREVENTION
  • UTILISE MATERIAL PROVIDED TO DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT A HEART HEALTH CECK INITIATIVE FOR THEIR PRACTICE POPULATION
  • BE KNOWLEDGABLE ABOUT ACCESSING SUPPORT SERVICES AND RESOURCES INCLUDING CARDIOLOGY SUPPORT, RESEARCH AND EVALUATION SUPPORT AND QUALITY IMPROVEMENT SUPPORT
