This edition of check considers preventive activities that are relevant to general practice.

Relevance to General Practice

Preventive healthcare is an important aspect of general practice. The relationship between general practitioners and their patients means they are best placed to prevent the onset of illness, for the early detection of specific disease, and for the promotion and maintenance of health. An estimated one third of the total burden of disease in Australia can be attributed to modifiable risk factors.
