Multidisciplinary Care

The GP Super Clinic has GPs, nurses and allied health practitioners including diabetes education, psychology, audiometry and cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation. Specialist practitioners associated with the Bundaberg Specialist Centre may offer sessional visitation to the Clinic subject to recruitment of additional specialist staff.

HeartSTART cardiac rehabilitation and pathology collection services are also being provided. Practice nursing and chronic disease management and rehabilitation services have commenced.

Preventative activities

Chronic disease care plans will be used at the GP Super Clinic for the early detection and management of these conditions. As part of a broad response to the underlying chronic disease load within the community, the existing HeartSTART Cardiac Rehabilitation program will be integrated into programs offered from the GP Super Clinic, and will provide a key focus on health promotion and disease prevention.

It is anticipated that as the patient base builds, additional lifestyle education activities and chronic disease self-management facilitation will be provided through the GP Super Clinic modeled upon the successful HeartSTART program. Top of page
