General Practice and Nursing

General practice nursing is an area with a scope of fastest growth within the healthcare sector and covers many areas of nursing practice including lifestyle education, aged care, women’s health, men’s health, infection control, chronic disease management including cardiovascular, asthma and COPD care, immunization, cancer management, mental health, maternal and child health, health promotion, population health, diabetes, wound management, Aboriginal health and many more. The proportion of consultations with nurses has increased by 20% since 2012 but patients with diabetes made fewer consultations per year in 2017 compared with 2012. According to the statistics about 40-50% of the consultations involve nurses. A recent study of 25 practices identified six roles of nurses in general practice: patient carer, organiser, quality controller, problem solver, educator and agent of connectivity. The general nursing workforce increased by only 6.6%. A study stated that 43.5% of the observed nurse time was spent on clinical activities, of which 21% were funded through Medicare. The study indicated that GPs spent on average 36% of their time on non-patient tasks (administration, phone calls, practice management etc.) and that Practice nurses spend an average of 65% of their time on non-patient tasks.
