Chronic Disease Management (CDM)
If you have a chronic or terminal medical condition, our GPs can work with the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) program offered by Medicare to plan and co-ordinate the appropriate health care for you. We’ll take you through the Medicare guidelines and develop a personal plan for your treatment. Our GPs can also organise care plans on your behalf.
In general practice, a care plan is a process for setting and achieving health goals. This involves:
- Assessment of the patient’s condition(s) in relation to overall health and functionality
- Outlining the practitioner’s goals for the patient
- Addressing the patient/carer’s needs and goals
- Planning treatments and actions that will meet the goals, and planning review steps
If the GP involves other health and care professionals as well, the plan may also include:
- Collaboration between team members to prepare the plan
- Recording of each party’s goals and the treatment
- Care planned to meet those goals, and regular review of the team arrangements
Mental Health Plans
If you have a mental health issue, our GPs can work with Mental Health Plans offered by Medicare to plan and co-ordinate the appropriate health care for you.
Mental Health Plans are available to patients with an assessed mental disorder who would benefit from a structured approach to the management of their treatment needs.
While all our doctors deal with patients who have psychological issues, we also have two in-house psychologists:
