Improve care for your patients with, or at risk of, diabetes.
Delivered by the Improvement Foundation (IF), this Australian Primary Care Collaboratives (APCC) Program wave provides general practices and other health services an opportunity to achieve improved patient care for those living with, or at risk of, diabetes.
Engagement in this wave commences in November 2012 and consists of three national (face-to-face) learning workshops and four virtual learning workshops. The learning workshops provide an opportunity to learn from leading experts and network with peers.

Participating practices and health services will receive hands-on support and resources through their Medicare Local and IF.
