[Extract]Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) was introduced in November 1999 with the aim of
encouraging general practitioners to conduct
health assessments, care plans, and case
conferences, and to achieve improved health
outcomes for patients with chronic and
complex care needs.1 The Health Insurance
Commission (HIC) released statistics in
October 20002 revealing that, while health
assessments had been readily taken up by
GPs, care plans and case conferencing had
not. They were slow to adopt the program in
the Macarthur Division of General Practice
(MDGP). As a result, the Macarthur Health
Service developed an education package to
assist GPs develop skills in care planning and
case conferencing to improve the uptake of
these EPC items.
