Rationale

The past few years have seen considerable investment in chronic disease management in primary care, particularly relating to diabetes. This has included new forms of payment for GPs and practices, payments for allied health services and subsidies for practice nurses in rural and outer urban areas, support programs through Divisions, support for self management and developments in information systems. It is important that these developments take full advantage of relevant evidence of effective strategies
