Care Plans (for Chronic disease management)
Chronic Disease management
Chronic Disease Management Plans- GP Management Plans for patients with chronic medical conditions. They form a framework for agreeing on management goals with individual patients and identifying actions to be taken by patients. These goals are then reviewed with the patient every 3-6 months. Some patients may be eligible for a Team Care Arrangement which facilitates communication between GPs, specialists and Allied Health professionals. These Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) referrals entitle patients up to five Medicare subsidised sessions per calendar year to Allied Health professionals.

Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) will stop you getting pregnant for a number of months or years. There are three types of LARC available and we offer all these methods at Melville Medical Group.
- Depot- Provera contraception.This is administered by an intra-muscular injection every 3 months.This is an injection of the hormone progestogen. Each injection is more than 99.5% effective.
- The contraceptive implant (Implanon NXT).The implant slowly releases the hormone progestogen. It is more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy and can last for up to 3 years. The implant is inserted (injected) under the skin of your inner upper arm by a trained doctor. A local anaesthetic is used so that you will not feel pain when this is happening.
- Intra-uterine device (IUD). An intrauterine device (IUD) is a small contraceptive device that is put into the uterus (womb) to prevent pregnancy. The two types available in Australia are the copper IUD and the hormonal IUD (Mirena). The hormonal IUD contains progestogen. Both types are more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy and can stay in place up to five years. The IUD is inserted by a specially trained doctor.
