186216 - Health Care Homes Module 6: Developing and implementing the Shared Care Plan

  • : Online


This module outlines how participants can support and facilitate shared care planning to lead to improved experiences and health outcomes for patients with long-term conditions.

Relevance to General Practice

Health Care Homes is a model for general practices and ACCHS. A Health Care Home is an existing general practice or ACCHS that further commits to a systematic approach to chronic disease management in primary care. This approach supports accountability for ongoing high quality patient care. It uses an evidence-based, coordinated, multi-disciplinary model of care that aims to improve efficiencies and promote innovation in primary care services.
