The RACGP has published the Guidelines for preventive activities in general practice 9th edition (Red Book) since 1989 to support evidence-based preventive activities in primary care.
The Red Book is now widely accepted as the main guide to the provision of preventive care in Australian general practice.
The Red Book is designed to provide the general practice team with guidance on opportunistic and proactive preventive care.
It covers primary (preventing the initial occurrence of a disorder) and secondary (preventive early detection and intervention) activities.
The Red Book provides a single entry point to common conditions seen in Australian general practice and offers practical advice on the kind of screening and services that should be provided to the general population.
