Non-Dispensing Pharmacist in General Practice Program: A program placing non-dispensing pharmacists into Comprehensive Primary Care Practices to facilitate the trialling of principles from the Quadruple Aim and the 10 Building Blocks of High Performing Primary Care.
GP Urgent Care: Laid the groundwork for an 18-month pilot to enhance capacity within community-based GP clinics to care for patients with urgent but non–life-threatening medical conditions, delivered in partnership with the Department of Health WA. It will help to decrease the almost one fifth of emergency department attendances that could be avoided by people seeking treatment in general practice.
