Key points

 

  • Prevention is relevant to patients across all life stages and applies to the whole natural history of disease.
  • Implementing preventive activities involves recognising the challenges of implementation and using evidence-based strategies to overcome them.
  • Successful implementation of preventive care requires coordination and collaboration within the practice team and with external organisations (eg PHNs).
  • Focusing on prevention is part of a QI approach


The Green Book brings together two main themes: prevention and implementation.

Both of these sit within QI and are inherently associated with behaviour change.
