Submission to Inflammatory Bowel Disease National Action Plan


Summary

Date: 11 December 2018

The RACGP has been invited to provide feedback on the Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) National Action Plan, developed by Crohn's & Colitis Australia for the Australian Government Department of Health.

Crohn's & Colitis Australia held a national roundtable workshop of government and IBD stakeholders, completed a literature review on priority areas and conducted a stocktake of current national IBD quality improvement activities to produce this plan.

The RACGP has concerns that the draft Plan does not adequately address:

  • issues of access to specialists care, and
  • the role of primary care in managing IBD, particularly for people in rural and remote areas.
