Project Synopsis:
In 2006, the Council of Australian Governments in its Plan for Better Health for All Australians identified the importance of promoting healthy lifestyles in order to prevent the onset of chronic disease. It proposed to achieve this by supporting the early detection of lifestyle risks and chronic disease through a health check in general practice for people aged 45-49, although this has not previously been examined in the Australian context. This study examined the utilisation, acceptability, and effectiveness of this type of health check in general practice through an intervention to support practices to provide health checks, interviews with clinicians, clinician surveys, and surveys of patients invited to attend for a health check.
