Putting prevention into practice (Green Book)
For over 20 years, the RACGP has published the Putting prevention into practice: guidelines for the implementation of prevention in the general practice setting (the Green book) to help support the implementation of evidence-based preventive activities in primary care.
This 3rd edition Green book uses current evidence and lessons learned from the literature and general practice experiences to make implementation of preventive activities as straightforward and effective as possible. The Green book uses real-life case studies and ideas to help illustrate processes, strategies and tools to implement and sustain preventive activities.
A practical companion to the RACGP’s Guidelines for preventive activities in general practice 9th edition (the Red book), the Green book also helps support the implementation of other RACGP publications including SNAP and the National Guide.
The Green book is a central resource for your whole practice and for those working with your practice, including:
- Members of your practice team involved in or interested in quality improvement (QI)
- Members of practice teams responsible for implementing evidence-based guidelines
- Practice management decision makers
- Groups working with general practices to improve Australian healthcare, such as Primary Health Networks, particularly QI support officers
- Peak bodies
- Allied health professionals
