This online training package is designed for General Practitioners (GPs) and other health practitioners to enable them to develop skills in the use of the Flinders Program tools and Live Well Smoke Free tools to undertake a needs assessment and prepare a self-management Care Plan with a client/patient.

Relevance to General Practice

GPs are at the frontline of the prevention and management of chronic conditions. The Flinders Chronic Condition Management Program™ incorporates the core skills needed for GPs and the primary care workforce to better support clients with chronic conditions. It is an evidence-based program that is consistent with the Chronic Care Model developed by Wagner et al. (1996).
