It has been estimated that half of the patients at general practice encounters, and one-quarter of the Australian population, have two or more diagnosed chronic conditions. This is of concern as patients with multiple chronic conditions have been shown to have a decreased quality of life, higher use of health services and increased risk of mortality. Such patients are at risk of receiving fractured care, as our healthcare system
is structured to provide care for single diseases, especially in the tertiary sector.
