Chronic Disease Management
Adamstown Medical Centre has highly experienced vocationally registered GPs who have all completed extra training for general practice. They manage patients with chronic diseases such as asthma, coronary heart disease,chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes and renal impairment.
We work with our patients on prevention of chronic diseases and provide regular checks on cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure and help patients improve these. GPs use the Diabetic risk assessment tool and Australian Cardiovascular Risk Predictor to target those at moderate to high risk and also factor in family history and smoking status.
Adamstown Medical Centre has an excellent referral network of specialists and Allied Health professionals to help with chronic disease management. Referrals to the Diabetes Association for those at moderate to high risk of diabetes can also to attended.
