APNA Online Learning
Learning on the go with APNA online learning
Gippsland has experienced drought, bushfire and pandemic in 2019-2020. Gippsland Primary Health Network (Gippsland PHN) worked to support the community’s health and wellbeing through practical and innovative initiatives.
Recognising ongoing community needs, Gippsland PHN engaged APNA in January 2021 to support the establishment of up to 3 nurse clinics to support improved provision of evidenced based, risk prevention, health assessment and screening care for the community. For the purposes of this project, applications are open to general practices employing 1 or more nurses in the Gippsland PHN Latrobe catchment area, interested in establishing a Nurse Clinic.
This project focuses on optimising utilisation of a nurse delivered, team based models of care (Nurse Clinic) to identify patients at risk of developing chronic disease(s) in conjunction with validated screening tools (where available), either self-administered or administered in conjunction with the general practice nurse, to facilitate access to preventive strategies related to chronic disease.
