Putting prevention into practice (Green Book)

01 Prevention in general practice

Key messages

  • Planning underpins a successful approach to improving preventive health activities for patients in your practice1
  • Successful prevention programs require the practice team to systematically plan for change
  • Planning involves consideration of preventive health activities at three levels: the patient consultation, the practice and the broader community, and the health system
  • The 'plan, do, study, act' (PDSA) cycle can be used to quickly and easily test ideas for improvement, and uses simple measurements to monitor the effect of changes over time
