Integration is a core principle and coordinating mechanism for new models of primary care, and patient care is greatly influenced by the quality of delivery processes. Their experiences also depend on how well their care needs are communicated, and whether good quality information and processes inform people who provide care.
In 2012, the Quality Symposium builds on the Voyage to Quality theme and current work by general practice and primary care to improve outcomes for patients. There is a focus on enablers that support clinical teams and patients to manage care in the current integrated environment. The Symposium will focus on learning about practical aspects of implementation, application and integration of care.
