GPs and Primary Healthcare Day One: Wednesday, 30 September 2020

Wednesday, March 25th, 2020


10:30 AM Keynote Presentation: The Future of General Practice

The newly updated Vision for general practice and a sustainable healthcare system (the Vision) will form the basis of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners’ (RACGP) advocacy strategy for health system reform. The Vision aims to demonstrate a patient-centred view on how well supported general practice (GP) teams can deliver sustainable, equitable and high-value healthcare that benefits patients, providers and funders.

Learn how the RACGP’s Vision addresses a range of issues and pressures facing Australian primary health, including the need for:
  • Enhanced support for evidence-based preventive care, which requires increased investment in GP research
  • Increased economic productivity to support healthier living, more active contributions to society, improve access to care in a preferred community setting and reduce out-of-pocket costs
  • Funding to support aspects of care currently unsupported by the Medicare system which, when combined with other reforms, would lead to increased provider satisfaction and encourage graduates to the profession, ensuring the sustainability of the future medical workforce
