                          A Collaborative Model for Enhanced Elder Care

                          This presentation aims to take you on a journey of cross-sectoral partners who all want to improve the care of elderly people and ensure that the best care possible is provided in the most appropriate setting for their needs. With this in mind the CEDRiC Collaboration (Care Coordination through Emergency Department, Residential Aged Care and Primary Health Collaboration) set forth to obtain formal research to validate the intercepting HIPS(Health Intervention Project for Seniors) and GEDI (Geriatric Emergency Department Intervention) projects.

                          This particular presentation will focus on the HIPS portion of the project which aims to use an evolving Nurse Practitioner Candidate to improve access to care for elders living in Residential Care. It is hoped that this model will prove to be sustainable and replicable across the aged care sector in the future.

Whilst practice nursing has been established in New Zealand for many years, the Ministry of Health has recently implemented a number of policies in order to increase multidisciplinary service provision and realise the potential of primary care to deliver personalised services to meet individual patient needs. It is timely, therefore, to investigate consumer satisfaction with practice nursing services in order to establish the acceptability of the service and highlight areas for improvement. This presentation will describe consumer satisfaction with New Zealand practice nurses.

                                  A specialist wound clinic in general practice does it work

                                  A presentation by Jan Rice at the 2013 APNA National Conference - Movers and Shakers.


                                  After working in the Austin Health Would Clinic for over 14 years Jan Rice became aware of the need to try to bring the specialist to the patient and not the patient to the specialist.

                                  This presentation will explore establishing a specialist wound clinic in a general practice as a means of reducing waiting times for wound assessment and appropriate interventions and using the clinic as a clinical placement setting for other practice nurses in order to upskill them in the challenges of complex wounds.

                                          Adult Vaccinations

                                          Continuing improvements in health care, nutrition and disease prevention have led to ageing of the population, a trend which is set to continue. Older age of retirement and greater reliance on older adults for economic sustainability will drive incentives for health ageing. Vaccines are low hanging fruit for healthy ageing, yet under-utilized. There is a gap between rates of funded infant and elderly vaccination which is leaving older adults susceptible to preventable infections. Adult vaccination is a growing area of need. This includes the elderly and at-risk non-elderly adults in various risk categories such as travel, and with specific medical risk factors for disease. The elderly have a higher incidence and greater severity of vaccine-preventable diseases, due to both immunosenescence and co-morbidity, and represent the largest group with age-based recommendations for vaccines such as influenza, pneumococcal and herpes zoster. Whilst the number of available vaccines for the elderly and the need for these vaccines has increased, health provider attitudes to elderly vaccination remain negative. Reasons for this, including ageism in healthcare, will be reviewed, and solutions discussed. The need for a new approach to elderly vaccination will be reviewed.

Has health reform been worthwhile, or do we still want major changes to the way the system works? Who are the winners and losers - especially a with rising levels of financial stress in the community?

He will draw on the three national opinion surveys run by the Menzies Centre for Health Policy and the Nous Group in 2008, 2010, and 2012. These surveys covered attitudes towards primary care services and aged care and looked at regional differences to give us a picture of where our health system is heading and some of the possible directions for reform.

The CSI Model and Resource Kit has previously been trialled and refined, leading to significant improvements in confidence and uptake of evidence-base wound management and improved healing times.

Yet despite the rhetoric, there is little evidence to show how general practitioners (GPs) and nurses work together.

This has led to a growth in multidisciplinary teams within general practice. A major barrier to teamwork in primary care has been role confusion and role ambiguity, in particular, that relating to the nurses role and potential scope of practice. This review seeks to synthesise the literature around professional practice standards in the context of nurses working in general practice.

Probably, and this was Canterbury Health System, New Zealand, in 2007. What happened to turn around an organisation that was evidently struggling, to becoming one of the top five performing organisations in the world?

Probably, and this was Canterbury Health System, New Zealand, in 2007. What happened to turn around an organisation that was evidently struggling, to becoming one of the top five performing organisations in the world?

                                                                                                  A clearly articulated strategy based on three elements:

So what's stopping them? The Australian Medicare Local Alliance research project Nurse Leadership -- Barriers and Enablers identified the issues and what you can do about them. This session introduces a leadership framework for nurses that incorporates the five elements of leadership in a caring environment and allows nurses to take stock of where their leadership capability is evident, where they want to apply it and how their networks and mentoring works to support them.

While low fat diets remain popular for weight loss, there is increasing evidence for the use of higher protein diets for weight management and improving risk factors of the metabolic syndrome. Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian Melanie McGrice will share the latest evidence and dietary strategies for managing risk factors of the metabolic syndrome.

Despite the growth of nursing in general practice, it is predicted that general practitioners and nurses will struggle to meet the growing demand for primary care services. Previous research however, has shown that collaboration between health professionals can improve efficiencies and health outcomes. Given the largely private nature of general practice, it is not known if these findings can be extrapolated to this setting. This study, therefore, seeks to explore the factors which influence collaboration in this unique healthcare setting.

How should we respond if a woman discloses intimate partner abuse? Who else should be involved in the care? How do we keep women and children safe?

The starting age, interval and primary test for cervical screening are all changing. These are significant changes for women, and nurses will need to be able to understand and explain these changes to their patients.

                                                                                                                                          This workshop aims to educate nurses about upcoming changes to the national cervical screening program. Participants will learn about advancements in understanding of HPV and the link to cervical cancer. Nurses will also learn about the innovative self-sampling pilot project currently taking place in Victoria and the implications this will have on improving screening rates in vulnerable communities. Case study activities will illustrate how all of the national cervical screening program changes will impact upon nurses' practice in the near future.

Several US and European studies have demonstrated the benefits of structured self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG). In the local context, the Structured Testing Program Implementation (STeP IT UP) trial assessed the impact of structured SMBG on HbA1c and diabetes-related distress in individuals with non-insulin treated type 2 diabetes managed in clinical settings across Australia. By sharing the findings of this trial, this session will aim to equip you with best practice and clinically-validated tools to help you better support your patients with diabetes.

This session by Dr Chris Bollen highlights the issues of healthy ageing and which older people will benefit from a focused 75+ health assessment. The evidence for what is required keeps changing for this rapidly growing group of the population. Primary health care nurses interact frequently with older Australians and play a pivotal role in responding to their needs, and as such, ensuring better health outcomes. Many primary health care professionals have not participated in training in the care of older people.

This presentation will outline the development of a new online resource to assist nurses to manage excess weight in primary school aged children. It includes the results of interviews with nurses and GPs and will show videos of scenarios demonstrating the approach to weight management in engaged and less than engaged families.

Given we live in what might be the greatest technological boom in history, we are seeing an increase in people searching for their own health-related information. Unfortunately, not all information online is credible, which leads to myths and poor health outcomes. Furthermore, this increased use of technology is making our society more sedentary, thereby increasing preventable chronic illnesses. Rather than working against the rise in technology, Hot on Health aims to use a technology to dilute the pool of bad information with well researched, evidence-based content that is delivered in an engaging and millennial style. Using a website and social media the content is readily accessible, with all resources provided to the public for transparency. This increased awareness and appreciation for health will promote wellness and preventative healthcare amongst the public.

Given we live in what might be the greatest technological boom in history, we are seeing an increase in people searching for their own health-related information. Unfortunately, not all information online is credible, which leads to myths and poor health outcomes. Furthermore, this increased use of technology is making our society more sedentary, thereby increasing preventable chronic illnesses. Rather than working against the rise in technology, Hot on Health aims to use a technology to dilute the pool of bad information with well researched, evidence-based content that is delivered in an engaging and millennial style. Using a website and social media the content is readily accessible, with all resources provided to the public for transparency. This increased awareness and appreciation for health will promote wellness and preventative healthcare amongst the public.

Personnel were taught about the importance of communication, leadership, decision making, alcohol and other drugs, situational awareness, fatigue, stress, teamwork and error management. In the normal working environment these elements were accounting for the human errors sometimes leading to catastrophic consequences. Both industries recognised the need for HF/NTS training.

Risk management in healthcare involves risk awareness, risk mitigation, decision-making around risk-benefit ratios, and continuous quality improvement. The appropriate and timely use of medication for acute and chronic illness management and for illness prevention is a cornerstone of modern healthcare. Poor adherence to medication is one of the major contributors to ill-health, and strategies to improve medication adherence are an important part of health service function. This presentation by Rhian Czech will describe the new medication management model introduced to immigration detention facilities, outline the challenges associated with its implementation, and will provide a detailed analysis of the considered benefits in terms of improving patient adherence to medications and managing risks.

Findings suggest ongoing challenges to nurses leading in primary health care which includes fragmentation among nurses, variable investment in regional nursing infrastructure, interdisciplinary relationship issues and limited training to develop future nurse leaders. Addressing these results requires clinical, strategic and professional nursing leaders to work within fora that are unified, cohesive and collectively agreed on their purpose.

Data from a recent Australian nurse survey resulted in over 6000 responses which demonstrated that many Australian nurses are reluctant to provide lifestyle education to patients if they perceive themselves to also be unhealthy. This raises questions about how we as nurses look after ourselves, how our health impacts on our work, and the image this portrays to each other and the community.

Supportive government policy has ensured the growth of practice nursing and management of chronic disease through targeted funding. Chronic disease risk factors are amenable to behaviour change counselling. As a result, general practice nurses are becoming more involved in lifestyle risk prevention, and expansion of practice nurse utilisation is recommended. In this context, exploration of general practice nurse views of lifestyle risk dialogue is needed as a basis for future chronic disease management and capacity of practice nurse service delivery. The current demand for chronic disease management and growth of nurse numbers in primary care provides a pivotal opportunity to deliver effective lifestyle risk communication interventions.

Individuals with COPD are amongst the most frequent attenders in the emergency department (ED) despite evidence suggesting many admissions are potentially avoidable. EDs are under increasing pressure due to rises in caseloads. Improved understanding of why patients present frequently to the ED could assist to inform strategies to optimise resource allocation and avoid unnecessary ED admissions. This study explores the experiences of frequent ED attenders with COPD and their carers, and in doing so, highlights some of these key issues and the impact that both acute and primary care health professionals can have on the individual and their carer.

Patient knowledge and skills are sorely tested by the complexities of diet and physical activity information; 59% of Australians have low health literacy, compromising their ability to change lifestyle and effectively use primary care services. Obese patients with low health literacy suffer stigma and are often assumed by health providers to have low motivation. This is detrimental to their seeking or receiving support to manage their weight.

To meet this need, leadership education was provided in collaboration with professional and academic partners. Additionally, a mentoring circle model reduced nurse isolation and facilitated knowledge and skills sharing. The mentoring circle brought together a group of highly motivated nurses from across the region. The networking meetings have helped reduce feelings of isolation and have empowered nurses to enhance their roles and identify the potential for change and improvement in their clinical setting.

She will speak about the refugee camp she visited where MSF had set up a medical project in order to support the health care needs of the growing community. Kristen will then speak about her role as the vaccination nurse, over my 6 week stay, summarizing the challenges faced along with the achievements of the campaign and the importance of primary healthcare interventions in such a setting.

She will speak about the refugee camp she visited where MSF had set up a medical project in order to support the health care needs of the growing community. Kristen will then speak about her role as the vaccination nurse, over my 6 week stay, summarizing the challenges faced along with the achievements of the campaign and the importance of primary healthcare interventions in such a setting.

Dr Richard Hatchett, a nurse tutor from London, shares the UK's experience with Australian colleagues by exploring the wider factors that appear to push this form of healthcare delivery and assesses clinics' effectiveness and role in modern healthcare. He outlines the areas which help a clinic's development, such as a good business and operational plan, and makes the case for evaluating patient 'experience' and not 'satisfaction' alone. The current evidence base, together with research gaps, are explored.

Dr Richard Hatchett, a nurse tutor from London, shares the UK's experience with Australian colleagues by exploring the wider factors that appear to push this form of healthcare delivery and assesses clinics' effectiveness and role in modern healthcare. He outlines the areas which help a clinic's development, such as a good business and operational plan, and makes the case for evaluating patient 'experience' and not 'satisfaction' alone. The current evidence base, together with research gaps, are explored.

This will require articulating a clear frame of professional reference, and altering the funding, and structure of general practice. Critically there is a need for Australian evidence that demonstrates that practice nurse-led care is both safe and effective.

This will require articulating a clear frame of professional reference, and altering the funding, and structure of general practice. Critically there is a need for Australian evidence that demonstrates that practice nurse-led care is both safe and effective.

Increasing vaccination coverage has dramatically reduced the incidence of whooping cough among Australian children. However, it remains a highly infectious and dangerous disease. In a household where someone has whooping cough, an estimated 80-90% of the unimmunised contacts of that person will acquire the disease.

Improvements in integration of care between providers requires support and active participation from all components of the system; executive level as well as those working on the ground. This project demonstrated the benefits that can be achieved by training and empowering practice nurses to test innovative ideas to enhance communication across the system. By focusing on a cohort of patients with chronic and complex needs, systems level changes to improve the quality and timeliness of information could be tested before wider implementation.

Plans look more closely with support of a data extraction tool (PEN CAT) at the picture of general practice. By analysing each practice we can demonstrate how optimising the role of the nurse and building capacity can create sustainable and positive health outcomes for their patients, ideally initiating integrative care and moving towards quality improvement as seen in accreditation and CPD standards. General practice historically uses a reactive model with no time to reflect or planning for future models of care for patient population. Utilising practice support plans, and where available data analysis planning, development and reflection can occur. The primary health care nurse role is vital in fostering changes and enabling relationships in current practice teams. With the support, encouragement and collaboration a great movement can occur in general practice and has been demonstrated in some of those motivated practices we support, the end goal being patient satisfaction and outcomes, and increasing job satisfaction for whole of patient care for the nursing staff. This model is in line with current Commonwealth strategies with Health Care Homes and moving away from task-oriented care, although there is a place for treatment room nursing particularly in larger and rural/remote practices.

Providing support to parents to promote healthy infant feeding using phone apps (mHealth interventions) is a novel yet untested approach. This paper reports on the effectiveness of Growing healthy, an app for parents of infants 0â??9 months that encourages behaviours associated with healthy rather than excess weight gain. This study provides new information on the feasibility and effectiveness of a novel infant feeding intervention.

Australia has such a health system, with primary care in the community predominantly being provided in a general practice setting.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Providing general information to larger groups has meant we have been able to identify health issues with some prisoners who would not normally access the health service on a regular basis.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Positive feedback from prisoners, Corrections Victoria and community agencies has encouraged the health team at Dhurringile to continue to run this activity annually.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Other facilities are looking at developing similar activities as part of Correct Care Australasia's commitment to prisoner health promotion and disease prevention.

The PBB audience is very social media-literate and they want to choose how and when they interact with health agencies. Healthdirect piloted six live Facebook forums with MCHNs answering parents' questions. Objectives were to learn about user behaviour, audience scale, workflow, editorial process and risk management. The forums connected parents and MCHNs in a social environment, facilitated community building and promoted engagement through sharing of content. The topics allowed parents to ask the 'silly question' without feeling like they're 'wasting the time' of the nurse on the phone. Participation expanded the professional scope of the nurses involved, increased their social media literacy, developed confidence in writing responses to parents questions and they enjoyed the experience.

It is not surprising that almost all patients experience distress in reaction to diagnosis and treatment of a chronic illness. For some, the challenge of adjusting to a chronic illness is considerable. Poor psychological adjustment is related to worse disease outcomes, poorer quality of life and increased suffering for patients and their families. Alongside support for chronic disease management, patients want support and information to manage the psychological challenges of living with a chronic illness. The ONTRACK model will provide guidance to health professionals to support patients' emotional recovery after an acute health event.

It is not surprising that almost all patients experience distress in reaction to diagnosis and treatment of a chronic illness. For some, the challenge of adjusting to a chronic illness is considerable. Poor psychological adjustment is related to worse disease outcomes, poorer quality of life and increased suffering for patients and their families.

From action on individual behaviour and service reform, to community engagement and partnership building, nurses are at the forefront of health promotion - putting the health back in healthcare.

To investigate whether SMS messages or personalised calendar reminders can improve on-time (within 30 days of due date) compliance with immunisations we conducted a randomised controlled trial using a purpose-built iPad application (app). Primary health care nurses used the app in general practices, council clinics, and Aboriginal Medical Services in South Australia and New South Wales, few of which had existing reminder systems.

Nurses are there at the most poignant moments of life and death. Nurses save lives and both prevent and alleviate suffering. Despite this reality, nursesâ?? ability to influence the development of healthcare in Australia and around the globe is limited by both the ability to articulate our impact and through exclusion from the tables of decision making. This presentation will explore the conditions which contribute to the silence and silencing of the nursesâ?? voice and consider approaches at an individual and workforce level that can help to realise the contribution of nurses to improved healthcare.

More than 10% of the overall health burden in Australia is a result of lung disease. It is a major cause of mortality, hospitalization, quality of life impairment and loss of productivity in the work place. Chronic respiratory diseases also are complicated by multiple comorbidities, particularly anxiety and depression. Integrated care models that target mental health and other comorbidities are effective in decreasing disease burden and improving health status. This presentation will focus on effective models that can be delivered by nurses to improve outcomes for people with chronic lung disease.

They practise at an advanced level often with limited or distant medical support. The extended scope of practice requires nurses in the remote context to have a broad knowledge base in disease management, including the administration, monitoring, supply and storage of medications. The extended scope of practice of nurses in the remote context, and the additional challenges this presents in ensuring QUM, highlights the need for advanced knowledge and skills management. The Centre for Remote Health provides a course in the practical use of medicines in disease management aimed at ensuring medicines are used appropriately, effectively, judiciously and safely, called Pharmacotherapeutics for Remote Area Nurses. The pharmacotherapeutics program is designed to assist RANs in developing knowledge and skills in the use of medications, the risks associated with them, and strategies to increase the benefits and minimise the risks of treatments. My vision for safe and high quality care in remote Australia involves a primary health care workforce that are highly educated and skilled in the management of medication within individual scope of practice.

Nurses are optimally positioned and skilled to contribute to and coordinate the care of this vulnerable population. This talk will focus on a framework of care that nurses can help embed into everyday primary care practice that allows for routine recognition of people approaching end of life so that patient-centred and proactive management plans can be developed and implemented. These plans avoid decision making in emotionally charged situations and contribute to a quality death. The role of the nurse centres on the facilitation of systematic identification of patients approaching end of life, communication skills and careful patient needs assessment in collaboration with GPs and other primary health care team members.

Looking forward reform will breakdown the silos between aged residential care and community services. We will see innovation in accommodation. Reform will challenge where consumers are spending their care dollars, with a shift away from "doing for" service delivery to enablement. Technology platforms will breakdown our dependency on facility based care delivery and healthcare services. Increasingly people living with high acuity will receive services, once limited to facilities, practices and hospitals, in the comfort of their home. Online innovations will allow people to be remotely monitored, living life more independently. Aged Care providers will increase their role as educators, coaches and navigators, opening their minds to new enablement services, coaching clients to make changes in behaviour and lifestyle, navigating them to service options they may otherwise not find on their own. The walls between general practice and progressive aged care providers will begin to come down as we design partnerships that remove obstacles to care coordination and streamline referral pathways.

With changes to blood glucose strip access for some patients, the need for a focused team approach to diabetes management becomes even greater. As per the National Australian National Diabetes Strategy 2016-2020, "Best-practice, high-quality diabetes care is best achieved when health care professionals work seamlessly and in partnership across primary health, community and specialist care services with direct consumer (the person with diabetes), carer and family involvement". With ever increasing prevalence of diabetes, general practice will continue to be overburdened with the responsibility of diabetes management and needs to look at new tools and programs to enhance delivery of education for Structured Self-Monitoring of blood glucose and clarifying its pivotal role in managing diabetes.

Heather Henry, a former practice nurse and now the new chair of a forward thinking British primary care membership body, the NHS Alliance, thinks that primary care nurses are the uncelebrated 'ninjas' of their breed. Their invisibility is the thing she is tackling and she says myths have grown up about what they actually do, which stop young nurses coming into the specialism: 'Handmaidens', 'Marking time to retirement', 'Need years of experience', 'Part-timers doing the job for pin money', etc.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Heather and fellow nurse Louise Brady set up a national GPN network. They decided to use social media - Twitter and Facebook - to explain all that is fabulous about primary care nursing. A recent social media campaign had a social reach of over a quarter-million people.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Heather believes that primary care nurses are the beating heart of their communities and, as a social innovator, she has ideas about how they can develop their role. Heather's approach is often 'why have a meeting when you can have a party?' and she sees residents as equal partners and often teachers too.

Heather thinks that not only must nurses unite, but our key assets, our GPs and patients must stand with us. For they know us best and their war cry is loud.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Some legendary abilities of Ninja warriors include invisibility, walking on water and control over the natural elements. Heather Henry, a former practice nurse and now the new chair of a forward thinking British primary care membership body, the NHS Alliance, thinks that primary care nurses are the uncelebrated 'ninjas' of their breed. Their invisibility is the thing she is tackling and she says myths have grown up about what they actually do, which stop young nurses coming into the specialism: 'Handmaidens', 'Marking time to retirement', 'Need years of experience', 'Part-timers doing the job for pin money', etc.

They decided to use social media - Twitter and Facebook - to explain all that is fabulous about primary care nursing. A recent social media campaign had a social reach of over a quarter-million people.

Heather's approach is often 'why have a meeting when you can have a party?' and she sees residents as equal partners and often teachers too.

Orange Sky Laundry now aims to positively connect the homeless with the community and improve the lives of others.

Treatment of wounds accounts for three of the five most frequently performed procedures in general practice. With wound prevalence increasing with age there is an urgent need to develop new models of care to respond to this significant health problem.
