Chronic Disease Management
The Clinic 279 aims to assist patients dealing with chronic and lifelong diseases such as diabetes, asthma, arthritis and many other chronic illnesses. Our allied health partners and medical health professionals will work with you to create a health management plan. This plan aims to minimise the effects of the condition on your day-to-day life and potentially prevent more serious episodes or complications of illness.
This may include medication, but also involves direct education for patients and their family or associates. Our Practice Nurses undertake General Practice Management Plans (GPMP), Health Assessments and Cognitive Health Assessments, all of which may uncover important problems and assist in the management of your condition.
