Teaching Your Registrar About Chronic Disease Management: Time Based Health Assessments

Speciality Classification
General Practice ( GP ) / Family Medicine

One in two (50%) of Australians report having at least one of the top eight chronic diseases. This fact alone makes chronic disease management essential learning for your registrar. Further, one in three (35%) of health problems managed in general practice (2015/16) was chronic. Meaning the likelihood of a registrar getting their fair share of chronic disease during their training with you is high.

This webinar is a practical look at Chronic Disease Management (CDM), with a focus on teaching a registrar how to manage their time. This is a third webinar in the CDM series.

By the end of this webinar you will be able to: 

  • Understanding the Medicare Requirements for a Health Assessment 
  • Identify practice team members involved in Chronic Disease Management 
  • Differentiate between Medicare Chronic Disease Management Items for Health Assessments 
  • Identify Eligible patients for Time Based Health Assessments 
  • Creating a Health Assessment shortcut for your progress notes to use with or without a Practice Nurse 
  • Implement learning into patient case studies 
  • Implementing Step by Steps to Complete a Time Based Health Assessment with your Registrar
