Meeting national targets and indicators to reduce mortality from chronic illness through general practice
Principal Investigator: Dr Kevin McNamara - Deakin University
The aim is to develop and investigate the feasibility, sustainability and impact of a quality improvement initiative in primary care, in collaboration with patients and practitioners; and to determine its overall impact on cardiovascular health outcomes for key groups.
This study looks at changes to general practice performance for cardiovascular disease risk screening before, during, and after the implementation of a patient-centred quality improvement initiative in a large general practice.
The researchers will work with The University of Melbourne to develop data coding to support future studies and quality improvement initiatives that utilise Patron data.
