Introducing group medical visits to a clinical practice is an effective way of supporting patients to manage their chronic conditions by providing information, advice, and hands-on care within a group setting.
This video shows how Dr Frank Egan in Victoria uses group visits to empower patients with challenging chronic conditions.
Supporting Patient Self-Management demonstrates the "Three Questions" technique that physicians can use to help patients create an action plan to support self-management of their chronic condition(s). The video promotes and encourages patient self-management through Group Medical Visits (GMV), where patients openly discuss the self-management process, ask questions related to their chronic conditions, and get support from their peers.
Self-Management support is a two-way communication process that encourages interaction between the patient and members of the health care team. It is designed to help patients learn how to adopt healthy behaviors, problem solve, and eventually improve their self-care.
The overall goal of self-management support is to increase the patients' self-confidence in their ability to change their own behaviors.
This video illustrates the evolving role of Medical Office Assistants (MOAs).
In today’s changing health care environment, the role of MOAs is more important than ever. Practice improvements are necessary to accommodate an aging population and the associated increase in chronic disease management. MOAs can help initiate and implement both administrative and clinical practice improvements.
This video demonstrates how patient self-management programs can benefit from the use of personal health files and explores how the use of these patient-maintained print versions of an electronic medical record can inspire patients to take charge of looking after their own health.
