This study is an economic evaluation of a general practice-based nurse-led education programme for patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. The OAK study failed to demonstrate improvements in knowledge, self-efficacy in arthritis management, or health outcomes after 1 year. Not only were the differences not statistically significant, they were not consistent in direction. The cost analysis showed a highly significant increase in costs for the patients randomised to receive the education programme. There was no evidence that the costs of the educational intervention were offset by reduced utilisation of other health services during the period of follow-up. This evidence lends support to contention that general practice-based patient education programmes for knee osteoarthritis are not a cost-effective use of healthcare resources. However further evidence is required before this can be confirmed.. ...

BACKGROUND: Nursing in Australian general practice has grown rapidly over the last decade in response to government initiatives to strengthen primary care. There are limited data about how this expansion has impacted on the nursing role, scope of practice and workforce characteristics. This study aimed to describe the current demographic and employment characteristics of Australian nurses working in general practice and explore trends in their role over time. METHODS: In the nascence of the expansion of the role of nurses in Australian general practice (2003-2004) a national survey was undertaken to describe nurse demographics, clinical roles and competencies. This survey was repeated in 2009-2010 and comparative analysis of the datasets undertaken to explore workforce changes over time. RESULTS: Two hundred eighty four nurses employed in general practice completed the first survey (2003/04) and 235 completed the second survey (2009/10). Significantly more participants in Study 2 were ...
Advance care planning (ACP) can offer benefits to patients and their families, especially when delivered in outpatient settings, but uptake remains low. Common barriers for health professionals include a perceived lack of time and adequate training, experience, and confidence in conducting ACP. Patient-reported barriers include a lack of awareness of ACP or discomfort initiating or engaging in discussions about end-of-life. We aimed to explore patients perspectives of an ACP intervention designed to address common barriers to uptake in the general practice setting. We provided training and support to doctors and general practice nurses (GPNs) to initiate and lead ACP discussions at their respective practices (2014 to 2015). Following the intervention, we conducted interviews with patients to explore their experience of engaging in ACP in the general practice setting. Thematic analysis was used to inductively code transcripts and identify key themes from semi-structured interviews with patients. Six

Background: General practitioners (GPs) conduct the majority of STI/HIV (sexually transmitted infections/human immunodeficiency virus) testing in men. Given the overall low prevalence of STI in general practice, GPs undertake targeted risk assessment and testing of their patients. Little, however, is known about the extent of STI and HIV risk assessment in general practice, the consistency of questioning or the extent to which GPs identify patients with risk behaviours. Aim: To explore STI and HIV testing strategies for men by general practitioners (family medicine doctors). Methodology: This study employs a cross-sectional survey of GP testing patterns adjoining a qualitative, multiple-case study, drawing on semi-structured interviews with seventeen GPs from the Wellington region. The testing behaviour of two cohorts of GPs is studied - those who frequently test for STI/HIV and those who infrequently test - stratified by practice size, the location and GP gender. Results: This study provides ...
INTRODUCTION: Children who have missed or delayed immunisations are at greater risk of vaccine-preventable diseases and getting their first scheduled dose on time strongly predicts subsequent complete immunisation. Developing a relationship with an infants parents and general practice staff soon after birth followed by a systematic approach can reduce the number of delayed first immunisations. AIM: To assess the effectiveness of a general practice-based pre-call intervention to improve immunisation timeliness. METHODS: Clustered controlled trial of general practices in a large urban district randomised to either delivery of pre-call intervention to all babies at aged four weeks or usual care. RESULTS: Immunisation timeliness for infants receiving the primary series of immunisations among their nominated Auckland general practices was higher than expected at 98% for the six week event. The intervention was statistically but not clinically significant. Coverage was significantly lower among infants with

A total of 457 patients were included (mean age 56 years, 52% female). The dropout rate was 24% in the intervention (NP) group and 20% in the usual care (GP) group. In both groups, approximately 60% of participants achieved weight maintenance after 3 years. The change in weight over 3 years was -1.1 in the NP group and -0.5 in the GP group (p = 0.34). There was no significant difference in mean weight change or change in waist circumference. Fasting glucose was lower among those in the NP group (-0.02) compared with the GP group (0.10) (p = 0.02). No difference between groups was observed for changes in lipids or blood pressure.. ...

After an initial period of decline, spending on general practice has increased by nearly 12% since 2010. Challenges remain: the Government is struggling with GP numbers, and demand pressures are rising as long-term conditions become more prevalent. New ways of working are emerging to face these challenges but there are signs that more patients are facing difficulties accessing general practice. Spending in general practice has increased by nearly 12% in real terms since 2009.

Aim: To provide an estimate of the prevalence and associations of CKD in Australian general practice, based on routinely collected electronic record data.. Background: Whilst most chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients are identified and managed in Australian general practice, the characteristics of this population, based on a large general practice dataset, have not been described. MedicineInsight, a primary care quality improvement initiative from NPS MedicineWise, collects de-identified patient information, including prescriptions and pathology results, from over 600 participating general practices to create a longitudinal database of over 3.5 million Australians.. Method: MedicineInsight data (01/01/2013 to 01/06/2016) was used to identify CKD (stages 3 to 5). Patients with two or more ...

This is the first study to investigate practice related factors that may affect access to routine postpartum care in general practice. A high proportion of the practices involved in the study undertook antenatal shared care and all provided community postpartum care for mothers and infants on a regular basis.. The majority of consultations were allocated 15 minutes or less with solo GP practices having significantly higher odds of longer consultations for mothers. While quality of postpartum care cannot be assessed by consultation time alone, previous studies have found that GP consultations for either the mother or infant often take longer than 15 minutes [13], and take longer than anticipated [14]. It has also been found that short and rushed consultations were an impediment to women seeking care and to discussing issues of concern with the GP [14]. This problem is accentuated if an appointment is only made for either the mother or the infant, although both mother and infant need to be seen. ...

BACKGROUND: In recent years there have been difficulties with recruitment in the United Kingdom (UK) to principalships in general practice. AIM: To compare recruitment trends in cohorts defined by year of qualification and to report attitudes of young doctors about the attractiveness of a career in general practice. DESIGN OF STUDY: Cohort studies. SETTING: UK medical qualifiers in the years 1974, 1977, 1983, 1988, 1993, and 1996. METHOD: Postal questionnaire surveys conductedfrom 1975 to 1999. RESULTS: Five years after qualification, 23.8% of 1993 qualifiers were in UK general practice, compared with 25.9% and 32.8% of 1988 and 1983 qualifiers respectively. Six per cent of responders in the 1993 cohort were general practitioner (GP) principals, compared with 10% of the 1988 cohort and 20% of the 1983 cohort. Ten years after qualification, 37.7% of 1988 qualifiers and 42.7% of 1983 qualifiers were in UK general practice. Older GPs had lower job satisfaction than their contemporaries in hospital practice
More than 80% of clinical care in the United Kingdom is delivered in general practice and primary care; some general practitioners refer less than 5% of their patients each year for specialist opinions and hospital investigations.1 2 Referral from primary to secondary care is often triggered by a general practitioners awareness of so called alarm symptoms, features in the clinical presentation that are considered to predict serious, often malignant, disease. For example, guidelines on the identification of alarm symptoms form the core of the two week rule for urgent referral of patients suspected of having cancer,3 4 and many clinical practice guidelines specify particular symptoms that mandate urgent investigation or referral.5 However, the evidence base for the alarming nature of many alarm symptoms is weak, and general practitioners often use individual approaches to the collection and analysis of data in the course of consultations,1 often relying on personal heuristics (which may ...
Patients who consult their GP for persistent medically unexplained symptoms differ significantly from other general practice patients and from patients who consult the GP in comparable rates but for medical diagnoses. After adjustment for demographic characteristics and chronic diseases, MUPS patients reported significantly more distress and impaired quality of life, they felt socially more isolated, and were less positive about the quality of GP-care. No significant differences were found with respect to lifestyle, coping style and trust in health care.. Consistent with prior studies, patients with persistent MUPS reported increased psychological problems and more functional impairments in different aspects of their lives when compared with other general practice patients [3, 6]. The worse health status reported by MUPS patients was not affected by differences in unhealthy habits, such as decreased levels of physical activity, increased levels of alcohol consumption or smoking behavior, since ...
The results of our RCT showed that attendance after a mailed invitation to patients aged 40-75 for CVRA was low (15.9%) and that a $25 monetary incentive did not lead to a statistically significantly increase in attendance, although there was an absolute difference in attendance between the two groups of 6.8%. We also found that GPs in this study tended to underestimate their patients CVD risk based on available information in the medical records, that participants in the intervention and control groups had similar perceptions of their future CVD risk and that almost half the participants from one practice would not have had a CVRA without the prompt provided by the invitation letter.. Our desired behaviour was attendance for CVRA, which has been promoted recently [7]. Although the cost-effectiveness of CVRA is yet to be determined CVRA can facilitate the management of individual patients [8]. We could have chosen the 45-49 year old health check, a separate item number in the Australian fee for ...
Discussion. Our study has quantified the sizeable independent impact of a range of GP, patient and encounter characteristics on consultation length (irrespective of variation in other factors), particularly GP age and sex, patient age and socioeconomic status, and the management of chronic, psychosocial and female genital problems. This is the first time, to our knowledge, that the individual contributions of these variables to consultation length have been quantified in Australian general practice.. The demonstrated effects are independent of each other and are therefore additive. For example, a consultation with a GP who is female, FRACGP-qualified, 65 years old, an Australian graduate, working in a small rural area will on average be 4.7 minutes longer than one with a GP who is male, not FRACGP-qualified, younger and an overseas graduate, working in a metropolitan area.. To that extra 4.7 minutes, we can add the time generated by the patient and by the content of the consultation. If the ...

Madam, We read with interest a recent article comparing the expectations and experiences of STI care in general practice(1). The need for appropriate sexual health services in primary care is clear especially when recent data show the prevalence of HIV-1 to have reached 2 per 1000 in 37 primary care trusts (PCTs) in England(2). Patients interviewed in the study by Sutcliffe et al had initially presented to general practice and were either recruited directly or had been advised to attend a genito-urinary medicine (GUM) clinic and were recruited there. Patients were recruited from areas of both high sexual health need and differing ethic diversity, but were fundamentally a self- selected group of patients who preferred to attend their GP over the GUM clinic. It could be argued that they differ from GUM clinic attendees in two unmentioned ways: Firstly, the median number of sexual partners in the 3 months prior to presentation in this study was 1 compared to ,1 for our clinic, which likely equates ...

Overall, 49 927 of 949 552 (5.26%, 95% confidence interval 5.21% to 5.30%; table 2⇑) patients triggered at least one prescribing indicator (P1-13). We excluded two indicators from the prescribing composite indicator (P1-P13, table 2⇑) as they were nested within P7 and dealt with subgroup populations (P14-P15). Four were excluded because they were relevant only to women (P16-P19) and we wanted to evaluate the relation between sex and overall risk in a set of indicators that was relevant across both sexes. An alternative composite indicator included the indicators relevant to women (P1-P13 and P16-P19) and was triggered by 52 671 of 1 195 408 patients (4.41%, 4.37% to 4.44%; table 2⇑).The corresponding composite monitoring indicator (M1-M4 excluding M5) was triggered by 21 501 of 182 721 patients (11.8%, 11.6% to 11.9%) (table 3⇑). The decision to exclude M5 (warfarin without international normalised ratio (INR) testing) from the composite monitoring indicator was based on the large ...
A survey has revealed that more than one third of doctors in general practice are unable to read their patients hepatitis C results.. This figure is exacerbated by a failure to follow up with patients even when they have been correctly interpreted, according to a survey of 200 GPs by ICM Healthcare on behalf of The Hepatitis C Trust.. Some people who contract the disease suffer mild to more serious symptoms but one in five will clear the virus naturally. In about 20% of cases cirrhosis of the liver will develop over a period of 20 years or more.. Almost a third of GPs (32%) do not actively follow up with patients who test positive for hepatitis C and more than two-thirds (77%) said they did not consider infectious diseases to be a major threat to public health.. The only drug treatment for the disease is successful in only half of cases when administered during chronic infection. Success rates among those treated early after infection are significantly higher at around 90%.. Charles Gore, chief ...
