Chronic Disease Management Plans

Chronic Disease Management Plan appointments have the primary goal of enhancing your quality of life. These appointments not only address the medical aspects of the condition but also incorporate lifestyle modifications, medication management, mental health support and education about the condition to empower the patient in the management of their own health. With this approach in mind, these appointments aim to reduce the risk of hospitalisation, improve clinical outcomes and promote overall well-being.

What to expect during a Chronic Disease Management Appointment

During a Chronic Disease Management Plan appointment, you’ll receive a comprehensive assessment of your health condition.

  • This begins with a detailed discussion about your medical history and the current state of your illness.
  • Then, you’ll proceed to a thorough physical examination, ensuring every aspect of your health is taken into consideration.
  • You’re then presented with a personalised management plan, tailored to your unique needs and circumstances. This plan includes lifestyle advice, medication adjustments if needed and strategies to support your mental health. This may also include a Team Care Arrangement, to include allied health sessions in your care if you wish for this to be done and meet eligibility criteria.
  • Educational resources about your illness are also provided to enhance your understanding and enable you to play an active role in the management of your health, and any referrals to specialists are provided at the conclusion of the appointment.
  • If you are also having a Team Care Arrangement performed, the nurse will inform you of the process for the TCA, as it is a reciprocal agreement between the different disciplines involved in your care, and must be entered into by all parties before it can be finalised. The nurse will inform you of the next steps involved with this arrangement.
