                            Chronic Disease Guidelines 3rd Edition 2010

                            Whats New


The rise in the burden of chronic diseases has important implications for health systems in Australia and around the world. Chronic disease is estimated to be responsible for more than 80% of the burden of disease and injury suffered by Australians.

Integral to the effective management of chronic disease is the availability of appropriate, quality services and tools. The evidence suggests an approach that includes primary health care health service re-orientation to chronic disease management, use of patient information recall systems, as well as evidence based guidelines and protocols.

To this end the Chronic Disease Guidelines 3rd edition 2010 have been developed to guide health practitioners in providing best practice prevention, early detection and management of chronic disease with a standardised set of tools and information. The Chronic Disease Guidelines 3rd edition 2010 is a synthesis of contemporary evidence-based principles and practices and has been developed collaboratively with input from a range of clinical experts and clinical networks from Queensland Health, the Royal Flying Doctor Service and Apunipima – Cape York Health Council
