Today, SEMPHN will open a tender for multiple grants up to the value of $100,000 (GST exclusive) to general practices in the SEMPHN region.
The aim is to support general practice to build their capacity to manage patients with chronic and complex conditions to achieve one of the key PHN national priorities - reducing Potentially Preventable Hospitalisations (PPH).
The objectives of the grants are to support systemic change that will:
- improve the health system, service and the health literacy of patients and their families
- enhance the patient’s ability to manage their own health needs through self-care strategies
- improve health outcomes for those patients with poorly managed chronic conditions.
- reduce the rate of PPH for chronic conditions in the SEMPHN region
- increase the efficacy of care coordination strategies to better manage chronic and complex conditions and to improve the patient’s quality of life, and
- improve the sustainability of the practice by improving systems and quality to accommodate more clients and offer additional billable services.
An information evening about the tender will be held at 6pm on 12 April in Dandenong. Register here.
The session will be recorded and available to view on the SEMPHN website after the session.
Register your interest and apply for these grants on SEMPHN's Tenderlink page.
Tenders close 3pm 27 April.
