We had the pleasure of welcoming Primary Care Nurse Consultant Jane Bollen and GP Dr Chris Bollen to teach at our practice yesterday.
Jane and Dr Chris have a special interest in the care of older people, and taught us about healthy ageing, with a specific focus on identifying, preventing and managing frailty in our day to day practice.
Jane previously worked at Allenby Gardens Family Practice in Adelaide running a nurse led (team-based care) “Healthy Ageing Clinic”.
We learnt many valuable lessons that will form part of our quality improvement initiatives as a practice, and that will help us in achieving our objective of “keeping older Australians independent and safe in their own homes”.
Rosedale Medical Practice prides itself on providing “high performing primary care” with four key principles at its foundation:
✅ Engaged Leadership ✅ Data-driven Improvement that respects the privacy and confidentiality of our patients ✅ Empanelment ✅ Team-Based Care
By the end of April 2020, we provided influenza vaccines to 79.03% of our active patients over the age of 65. This means that we exceeded the average for our region by a solid 20.25%.
What does this mean for you?
Your journey doesn’t stop when you leave our practice. Neither should your health care. Our ‘Care Outside the Box’ philosophy is a commitment to reach outside the four walls of our practice, and provide you with all the resources that you and your family need to make the right decisions for your health.
We will continue to share our approach with you through updates to our website as well as our Facebook posts. Stay tuned.
