Putting prevention into practice (Green Book)


Not all practice staff will be equally comfortable networking with other agencies and groups in the community, and not all staff will need to be engaged in such activities. When staff do need to be involved, it is important they understand the purpose of the approach and how it could benefit patients, GPs and the practice. It will take time to identify and explore barriers to extending networks and partnerships and how these can be overcome. Establishing a good team environment in your practice will provide a sound basis for building broader partnerships in the community. Adequate knowledge, awareness, skills, time and incentives are also important. Many divisions of general practice provide support, opportunities and/or skills training for participating in community and national campaigns.
