Have your say on general practice incentives
The Department of Health and Aged Care has engaged KPMG to undertake an Effectiveness review of General Practice Incentives across Australia.
 
The review will assess the effectiveness and impact of the existing incentives program and aim to identify solutions to enhance it as a funding model in the future. This is inclusive of the Practice Incentive Programs (PIPs) and Workforce Incentive Programs (WIPs).
 
The department is seeking insight and feedback from GPs on how current incentive programs impact you, your practice and patients. Complete the survey by Friday 22 December for the opportunity to influence the shape of the primary healthcare system.

Medicare rebate survey
Deakin University researchers are seeking practices keen to participate in a study on how patients understand Medicare rebates in a general practice setting.
 
Practices do not need to recruit individual patients but are asked to place a poster in their waiting room or share the supplied tile on social media. The poster and social media tiles contain a QR code patients can scan which takes them to an anonymous survey asking them about how they understand Medicare rebating in general practice.
 
For more information, please see the Organizational Plain language statement and consent form, the Participant Plain Language statement and the Clinic Participation Instructions.
 
Members can also contact Deakin University student researcher Alice Gaynor via email at s222108817@deakin.edu.au for further information.
