  • Issue 13 - Disability scheme a pointer for primary care
    • Abstract:
      An individual's choice and control is at the heart of DisabilityCare Australia's delivery of the national disability insurance scheme.

  • Issue 13 - Greens vision for primary healthcare
    • Abstract: Di Natale, Richard
      Sadly, when election time comes around the health debate often devolves into a superficial discussion of hospital emergency department waiting times and elective surgery waiting lists. With this election just gone, we didn't even get that. It was a wasted opportunity to discuss the most important issue to many people.

  • Issue 13 - Are medicare locals delivering value for money?
    • Abstract: Wells, Leanne
      Our systems, financing regimes and structures have held us back in health. This is a policy conundrum that has transcended both Coalition and Labor national governments. A 2006 Parliamentary inquiry into health funding recognised that the 'blame game' between the Commonwealth and the states for the failings of the health system does not benefit patients. Patients don't care which level of government manages or pays for their healthcare1. The 2009 National Health and Hospitals Reform Commission described a fragmented health system ill-equipped to respond to the challenges it faced2. The Commission and the many stakeholders who made submissions concluded that the case for health reform was compelling. Structural change and a more patient-centric system based on the healthcare home were seen as key solutions.

  • Issue 13 - Mental health needs mature attention
    • Abstract: McGorry, Pat
      With one in four of us experiencing some form of mental ill-health in our lifetime, mental illness poses one of the greatest threats to our own health and wellbeing, as well as to the social and economic health of the nation. We now understand that mental health is everyone's business, and want a better deal for those living with mental illness, whether it be a family member, friend or colleague. Greater awareness has been fostered, especially by beyondblue and SANE . Repeated National Mental Health Surveys reveal substantial unmet need, and a shameful gap in access and quality of care between physical and mental healthcare. This results in so much unnecessary suffering and wasted potential.

  • Issue 13 - International lessons about improving coordination in primary

    • Abstract: Russell, Lesley
      The former Australian Government's policy placed primary care at the centre of the healthcare system and to this end, invested $1.8 billion in Medicare Locals, which were mandated to deliver innovative services responsive to the needs for the communities they serve.

    • Abstract: Marles, Liz
      We can count ourselves lucky to live in a country with some of the best healthcare services and facilities in the world. Yet we are often challenged with finding our way through Australia's multifaceted healthcare system, especially when experiencing or helping a loved one with complex and chronic health issues.

  • Issue 13 - The pharmacists' role in primary care
    • Abstract: Rigby, Debbie
      Better integration of pharmacists into primary care is an old story to those within the profession, but the need to actually make it happen has never been greater. The ageing population with an increasing burden of chronic disease coupled with a high rate of medication-related problems creates an environment where pharmacists need to contribute more to society than just a dispensing role. An estimated 190,000 medication-related hospital admissions occur each year, with estimated costs of $660 million.

  • Issue 13 - Are current primary health services for Indigenous Australians
           improving or otherwise?: What are the challenges?
    • Abstract: Kimpton, Tammy
      Primary healthcare has an important role to play in improving health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, with research showing that effective primary healthcare can contribute to closing the gap in life expectancy between Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations1. Considerable effort and investment in primary healthcare by governments, institutions and other stakeholders over recent years, has led to improvements in some areas of Indigenous health, such as increased birth weights for Indigenous babies and an increase in the number of Indigenous people receiving Chronic Disease Management Plans2. Yet, health inequality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people remains.

  • Issue 13 - In practice, nurses offer a healthier future for primary care
    • Abstract: Bell, Kathy
      Without doubt, the pressures on our health system will continue to intensify. Our ageing population along with the way we live is producing an increasing burden of chronic disease. More and more people are being hospitalised with the complications of diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and many other illnesses, often in combination. Depression and other mental health problems are part of this picture. Add in the complications of ageing, including a rising tide of dementia, and we clearly have a great deal of work to do.

      Diana and Annette are health consumers who wanted to contribute positively to health services because they have conditions that require monitoring and care. When consumers are listened to, placed at the centre of care and their voice is heard by the health organisations, positive changes can happen.

  • Issue 12 - Living on the waiting list
    • Abstract: Mikolaj, Helen
      No one should have to wait long periods of time on surgery waiting lists in this 'lucky' country. Unfortunately, there are many people living on waiting lists as a result of their inability to privately fund their surgery due to the cost of either private health cover or the cost of the gap payment for doctors' fees.

  • Issue 12 - Out of pocket costs and breast cancer
    • Abstract: Havnen, Leonie
      In November 2011, I was diagnosed with stage 3 aggressive breast cancer. As soon as I was diagnosed I asked the doctor to give the names of surgical oncologists at St Vincent's Hospital. To me it wasn't about dwelling on what I had just been told. What was important to me was to accept the diagnosis and get on and do what was needed to fight it.

  • Issue 12 - Rising consumer costs threaten health equity
    • Abstract: Di Natale, Richard
      The increase in out of pocket costs for consumers of Australian healthcare is a worrying trend. for those of us who share an unyielding commitment to a high quality, equitable, and truly universal health system the growing cost barriers represent a serious threat to these core values. When I was in medical practice I saw first-hand the difference a few dollars could mean to the health of a patient. Patients would put off visits, fail to keep up their medication and drop out of treatment programs. ultimately, the health system would bear the long term costs of these decisions through increased admissions to hospital and emergency departments.

  • Issue 12 - Addressing out of pocket health costs for consumers: The
           coalition's strategy
    • Abstract: Dutton, Peter
      Affordable access to healthcare for all Australians is an essential pillar of our universal system. however, it is no secret that healthcare costs are rising rapidly and there is increasing pressure on government budgets. facing fiscal challenges, the current federal Government has opted to shift a greater burden of costs to individuals through arbitrary changes and means-testing of previously universal programs. it is a slippery slope that has been pushed at a federal level in recent years.
