Primary Sense Update 


Local GP champions Primary Sense

To support WA general practices to reap the benefits of Primary Sense, a population health management, clinical decision support and data extraction tool, the Practice Assist team is working closely with local Primary Sense GP Champion, Dr Lyn Wren and other subject matter experts to develop a suite of educational tools and resources for GPs and practice staff. A comprehensive Desktop Navigation Guide and an easy to read brochure for patients explaining Data Security with Primary Sense is already available to download. More resources will soon be available on key topics including:

  • A guide to Primary Sense reporting and commonly accessed reports
  • Explaining Primary Sense complexity scoring
  • Resources supporting data mapping of prompts and reports.
With more than 25 years of general practice experience, Dr Wren has also worked as a teacher, mentor and supervisor with the Australian General Practice Training Program.

Part of the Quinns Mindarie Super Clinic clinical team since 1994, she enjoys caring for people of all ages and has a number of special interests including managing chronic medical conditions, pregnancy and baby care, and promoting positive ageing.

More recently, Dr Wren has been involved in the COVID-19 pandemic response team at her practice and is having a leave of absence from clinical care, to focus on Clinical Governance, Quality Improvement, management and preparing the practice for the future.

Dr Wren is building on her previous experience working with WA Primary Health Alliance on our Comprehensive Primary Care Program, through supporting the development of the Primary Sense reporting module and working with us on series of upcoming educational webinars on key topics including:
  • Onboarding different roles within the practice team to Primary Sense
  • Primary Sense reporting for GPs
  • Exploring the benefits of Primary Sense for GPs and the practice team
Keep reading Practice Assist/GP Connect to access these resources as soon as they become available. If you are not already subscribed to GP Connect, visit

*Note: Primary Sense GP Champions are remunerated formally by WA Primary Health Alliance for their role in educating and supporting general practices to get the maximum benefit in their use of the tool.

Accreditation in Focus - Feature Topic


General practice accreditation delivers better outcomes for your patients and your practice

In  Australia, general practice accreditation is a voluntary process where practices are assessed against the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Standards for general practices (5th edition) that were developed to protect patients from harm by improving the quality and safety of health care.

The Standards for general practices are considered the benchmark for Australian practices and provide independent recognition that a general practice meets industry standards set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).

What are the benefits of becoming an accredited general practice?

  • Improved patient safety.
  • Effective risk management.
  • Patient assurance of a high level of care.
  • Building a culture of quality.
  • Continuous quality improvement (CQI).
  • Increased insurance provider recognition.
  • Accessing funding from the Practice Incentives Program (PIP) and the Workforce Incentive Payment (WIP).
  • The opportunity to reflect on what’s working well at a practice level and identify areas for improvement.

What are the benefits for your patients and staff?

  • Protection of patient privacy.
  • Clinical team members maintaining appropriate patient health records.
  • Ongoing education and training for practice team members to stay informed about current quality health care.
  • Patients are provided with a safe environment.
  • Practice staff are understanding and responsive to cultural needs.
  • The health care providers and the practice always ensure effective communication, so patients know and understand everything related to their health.

Where can you get more information and resources about accreditation?

If your practice is not accredited or if you want assistance to excel in the accreditation measures then contact the WAPHA Primary Care Navigators and Quality Improvement (QI) Coaches. They can assist your practice with identifying activities including implementing quality improvement to support accreditation. For further information about the benefits and process of general practice accreditation, contact Practice Assist.



Starting your practice’s accreditation QI journey

The word “accreditation” can send some members of a general practice team into a panic. However, many of the things that are often feared are usually already part of your team’s daily and weekly tasks, which are done automatically without realising they are actually part of quality improvement (QI) and accreditation.
QI forms part of every task that helps to improve patient outcomes and practice efficiency. As a result, it is easy to see how QI and accreditation go hand in hand and incorporating them into your team’s day-to-day workflow can make your practice’s accreditation cycle much less stressful for everyone.
You can start your practice’s accreditation QI journey by following the steps below:

  • Step 1: Ensure that your policy and procedure manual is up to date and regularly updated as policies and procedures change.
  • Step 2: Maintain the standards by ensuring all items and systems that surround accreditation remain active and part of your day-to-day systems. 
  • Step 3: Ensure that you are using a PDSA (Plan, Do, Study, Act) cycle to help develop, manage and test your QI activities.
  • Step 4: Involve the entire team in QI activities to help improve patient outcomes and practice efficiency.

It is important to remember that trial and error are part of the process when trying new things to improve your practice and patient outcomes. If a QI activity doesn’t work, it doesn’t mean it wasn’t a QI activity. It was simply a QI activity that didn’t result in an improvement. Your team can still review the activity, learn from it and start a new PDSA cycle, ensuring that you are always using the most accurate data for the best patient outcomes.
To find out more about starting your practice’s accreditation QI journey, contact Practice Assist and one of our Practice QI Coaches will be in touch as soon as possible.



COVID-19 Updates


Supporting respiratory patients in General Practice 

As GP respiratory clinics close and general practices work towards managing respiratory patients within your practice, you may be considering what this transition looks like.  

We have developed a fact sheet to assist practices in supporting respiratory patients in General Practice, including implementing safe spirometry in the practice.    

This fact sheet has been created to support practices review their procedures and infrastructure to be able to sustainably accommodate respiratory patients. 



Reminding patients to book their new COVID-19 booster

With the winter on the horizon, now could be a good time to remind your adult patients 18+ that if it’s been 6 months since their last COVID-19 vaccine dose or COVID-19 infection, they are eligible for a new booster vaccination.

This is especially important for people 65+ and those at higher risk of serious illness. Patients can be directed to ATAGI's updated advice and can book a COVID-19 vaccination directly with their GP or provider or visit Roll Up for WA for more information.
The WA Government has also developed the following promotional resources to share through your practice channels:


Immunisation & Cancer Screening Updates


The 2023 seasonal influenza vaccination advice is now available

Advice on seasonal influenza vaccination under the National Immunisation Program in 2023 is now available.

ATAGI has released seasonal influenza advice, including eligibility for vaccination, timing of vaccination and vaccination in pregnancy.

They have also included a reminder that it is safe to administer the influenza vaccination with any COVID-19 vaccination.
ATAGI advice is here
The Department of Health and Ageing have released the Program, advice for Vaccination Providers outlining Federal eligibility, vaccination timing, NIP vaccines by age group and reporting influenza to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR)
Program advice for providers is here
Resources including Fact Sheets for information providers and consumers, brochures and posters are now also available to print

Expanded influenza immunisation program from WA Health

Note: This information is not for wider distribution beyond general practice until formally announced by the WA Minister for Health.

To encourage increased uptake of influenza immunisation, WA Department of Health has confirmed an expanded influenza immunisation program will be offered in 2023.
The program will run for one month only 2023 and will likely commence 1 May 2023, but may be brought forward depending on the seasonal epidemiology.

Reimbursement payment:

In recognition of the cost involved in the purchase, storage, delivery and possible wastage of vaccines for practices, the program will include a reimbursement of $15 per privately purchased dose administered to persons aged 12 – 64 years provided at no cost to the patient.
General practices will need to provide evidence of: 

  • Purchase of 2023 influenza vaccines for their premises i.e. invoice(s)
  • Vaccine administration to persons including Australian Immunisation Register provider number.

Grant payment:

To compensate for extra staffing and communications costs, a $2,000 grant payment will also be available.
General practices will need to provide evidence of:
  • A minimum of 50 (metropolitan area) or 20 (regional areas) vaccinations having been provided during the prescribed month.
  • Additional activities undertaken to support and promote the program, for example:
  • Dates and times of extra clinic hours
  • Details of extra staffing requirements
  • Description of extra promotional strategies employed e.g. email / SMS reminders, offering routine opportunistic vaccination, social media posts, phone calls.

Practices should continue to order stock as per their normal process throughout this initiative.
Further details will be communicated as soon as it becomes available.



CMO Letter to Vaccination Providers

All vaccination providers should shortly be receiving a letter from the Australian Government Chief Medical Officer, Prof Paul Kelly regarding routine Childhood Immunisation.

This letter addresses the concerns around decreasing childhood immunisation rates, especially in the Aboriginal community.
It stresses the importance of vaccination in early childhood and the demonstrated knowledge that General Practice has been, and will be, forefront in lifting our vaccination rates.
A new range of resources and campaigns will be commencing in April from both the Commonwealth and the State Government.

Links to the Commonwealth resources can be found in the letter as well as other valuable tools Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation (SKAI) and parent resources (Talking about immunisation).
Please take the time to read the letter attached here



Opportunistic Vaccination – an important strategy in improving immunisation rates

As we all know, children who do not receive their complete vaccination schedule are at a greater risk of contracting vaccine preventable diseases.
In Australia we have an immunisation coverage target of 95%, unfortunately WA has some of the lowest childhood vaccination coverage rates in the country.
As trusted healthcare providers, you have an important public health role to ensure that your patients are fully vaccinated for their age.

Strategies to help you increase our vaccination rates are in the latest vaccine update.
Vaccine Update #320

If you need assistance to identify your patients who are eligible or overdue for vaccinations then contact Practice Assist and we can assist you to streamline your processes to assist in improving the rates of immunisation for your patient community, especially children.



Herpes zoster vaccine recommendations for immunocompromised people

The Australian Immunisation Handbook has recently been updated to provide information on Shingrix, and to expand recommendations for immunocompromised adults.

There are two vaccines for the prevention of shingles: Zostavax, a live-attenuated vaccine, and Shingrix, a subunit (non-live) vaccine. Shingrix is the preferred vaccine due to higher efficacy but is currently only available as a private prescription. Zostavax is funded under the National Immunisation Program (NIP) at 70 years of age. The catch-up program for people aged 71-79 years has been extended for a further 2 years to 31 October 2023.

A single dose of Zostavax is an effective alternative to Shingrix in people who are immunocompetent. However, as Zostavax contains live attenuated varicella zoster virus it is not recommended in people who are immunocompromised or shortly expected to be immunocompromised. It is contraindicated in people who are considered severely immunocompromised. People aged ≥18 years who are immunocompromised or shortly expected to be immunocompromised are recommended to receive a 2-dose schedule of Shingrix.

Severe immunocompromise may be from either a primary or acquired medical condition, or medical treatment. Administering Zostavax to people who are severely immunocompromised can result in disseminated vaccine virus disease. Fatalities due to disseminated disease have followed administration of Zostavax to immunocompromised patients. Vaccine Administration Errors (VAEs) and serious adverse events have been reported in Western Australia. 

The individual’s immune status should be carefully assessed before administering Zostavax, to confirm that they are not immunocompromised. If the person’s immune status is uncertain, do not administer Zostavax, and consult the person’s specialist or an immunisation specialist before proceeding.

All Zostavax VAEs, regardless of whether or not they result in an adverse event, should be reported to the Western Australian Vaccine Safety Surveillance (WAVSS) system at

For further information, see:



Shingles Awareness

As a health professional you play an active role in protecting thousands of older Australians who are at a higher risk of shingles and its complications as well as providing treatment during a zoster infection.  Please continue to advise patients about the importance and safety of vaccination, obtain medical history prior to vaccination with zoster vaccine, and check contraindications of live zoster vaccine in immunocompromised individuals.  Be on the lookout for diagnosis, and provide early management of pain and antiviral treatment when indicated.

Meningococcal Disease in Western Australia

The Department of Health released a media statement on 28 February to advise the public that a child had been diagnosed with Meningococcal B.

This child is recovering. It is the second reported case of Meningococcal B to be reported so far in 2023.
The MenACWY vaccine is offered free to all children at 12 months of age, as well as Year 10 students.

This vaccine does NOT cover for the meningococcal B strain.
All families should be encouraged to have both vaccinations at the correct timings and doctors are being asked to watch for signs of Meningococcal in patients.
Symptoms of meningococcal disease may include high fever, chills, headache, neck stiffness, nausea and vomiting, drowsiness, confusion, and severe muscle and joint pains.

Young children may not complain of symptoms, so fever, pale or blotchy complexion, vomiting, lethargy (inactivity), poor feeding and rash are important signs.
Although treatable with antibiotics, meningococcal infection can progress very rapidly, so it is important that anyone with these symptoms seeks medical attention urgently

South Metropolitan Health Service - Virtual Immunology Clinic recognised for enabling treatment of remote patients

With growing pressure on our healthcare system, patients can end up waiting for a specialist appointment, or sometimes return to their general practitioner (GP) or present to the emergency department (ED), further adding to the demand.

In response, the immunology team at Fiona Stanley Hospital (FSH) took things into their own hands and launched the Virtual Immunology Clinic to ensure referred patients receive timely access to the care they need, regardless of where in the State they live.

Led by FSH Head of Service Immunology Dr Dominic Mallon and supported by the South Metropolitan Health Service (SMHS) Kaartdijin Innovation team, this telehealth clinic has already doubled the immunology service’s capacity to deliver care for more than 4,000 patients more efficiently outside of the hospital. The long-term adult and paediatric wait lists were also eliminated, including expediting treatment for over 1,000 children.


Political Alert - Strengthening GP care for Indigenous Australians (FED)

Assistant Minister for Indigenous Health Malarndirri McCarthy said medical clinics have been encouraged to provide better, ongoing care to Indigenous Australians following the revamp of an incentive program designed to achieve better, long-term health outcomes. The Practice Incentives Program - Indigenous Health Initiative (PIP-IHI) has been updated and improved and will boost quality of care and outcomes for Indigenous people living with chronic health and mental health conditions. The PIP-IHI pays medical practices to sign up to the program when a patient is registered and when certain patient outcomes are reached.
