1:30 PM Prevention is Better than Cure: Connecting with the Community to Better Meet their Needs with Personalised and Preventative Care

Mental Health is the number one reason people visit their GP in Australia with an average of 20 minutes per consultation. However, GPs need a lot more time to properly assess, plan and review a psychological issue. This puts GPs in a position where they cannot properly care for our ‘at risk’ community. Increasing the amount of time GPs and practice nurses spend with these clients can significantly improve outcomes for all involved.

Learn how to:
  • Improve the overall health of clients with mental health issues by having additional Medical Benefits Schedule (MBS) numbers for mental health care visits and including a mental health care plan for all clients of the practice
  • Connect with the community by commencing a nurse clinic in the GP practice to prevent acute admissions to mental health care facilities and reduce trauma to clients, GPs and support workers
  • Prevent mental health from affecting your everyday tasks by providing bulk billing psychologists in your practice
