SPDS project streams
We work with general practices to build understanding of practice data, which has resulted in significant improvements to patient care and improved data available for population health and service planning.
Stream 1 of the project is the 'Chronic Conditions and Risk Factor Surveillance Stream' - a GP based sentinel site surveillance system to track chronic diseases and their risk factors in the region.
Results from this stream have received significant academic attention with several peer-reviewed journal articles and presentations available here:
Guided by the results and evidence base generated by Stream 1 of the SPDS project, Stream 2 focuses on supporting general practices to make meaningful use of their practice data.
