Patient-centred care has been touted as the cornerstone of an effective and efficient primary health care system. However, primary care by its nature is a fragmented system. The system co-evolves in response to needs rather than being planned. In recent years, Medicare Locals were formed in Australia with the intention to tap into this pragmatic nature of primary care and foster health services delivery which is responsive to community and individual patient needs i.e. ‘patient-centred care’. However, it remains to be seen what and how theoretical framework/s can inform this work. For this presentation we aim to illustrate with a case study how hepatitis C is currently managed in primary care and hypothesise what a congruent model of patient-centred care for hepatitis C management could look like.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
