Our Chronic Disease Nurse assists our doctors and their patients with their care planning. This is a service for people with chronic conditions, such as:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Heart Disease
- Lung conditions
- Early arthritis
Care planning is a great opportunity to have a discussion about your health – areas that are going well and areas that can be improved – as well as to have some basic health screening.
This process is about setting health goals you would like to achieve and coming up with strategies together to help you improve your health.
This is also a good opportunity to assess how the BDHC Allied Health Team can help you – for example, with physiotherapy, exercise physiology, dietetics, occupational therapy, social work, podiatry.
We look forward to meeting with you and having a discussion about what BDHC can help you achieve, so you can spend more time doing what you love.
Please ask your doctor about chronic disease management at your next appointment. To book an appointment, please call (03) 5366 7999.
