Winter Strategy Making an Impact for North Coast Residents

The Winter Strategy is progressing well with 26 practices enrolling over 700 patients patients at high risk of poor health and hospitalisation These patients are on their general practice's ‘winter watch list’ and will receive additional care from the practice to support improved self-management. In addition, continuity of care is supported via provision of admission and discharge notifications to general practice if a patient on their ‘winter watch list’ goes to hospital. winter-strategyThe past month has been a busy time for practices as they identify, enrol and provide additional care for their winter watch list patients. Practices have tailored participation in the Winter Strategy to suit their needs, with some practices taking a boutique approach and enrolling less than 10 patients and other practices providing additional care for up to 60 patients. Benefits of this work are already being seen, with patients reporting a greater sense of confidence in managing their own care. Regardless of whether your practice is participating in the Winter Strategy, or you are a Local Health District Clinician, you can take advantage of great patient self-management tools and resources such as Sick Day Action Plans.
