Practice Connect #173

29 June 2023

Welcome to this edition of Practice Connect, a fortnightly update for practice managers, nurses and practice administration staff on relevant issues, upcoming events and education.

Acknowledgement of Country 

WA Primary Health Alliance acknowledges and pays respect to the Traditional Owners and Elders of this country and recognises the significant importance of their cultural heritage, values and beliefs and how these contribute to the positive health and wellbeing of the whole community.

Throughout this newsletter, the term 'Aboriginal' is used to refer to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people, unless stated otherwise.


General Practice GP Grants


Grants payments in full swing

More than $8 million has now been paid to 340 Western Australian (WA) general practices following their applications for a Strengthening Medicare General Practice Grant, allowing them to start working towards achieving their selected practice development goals in a timely manner.

With more than 600 applications lodged with WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA), the Grants are set to support these WA practices to expand patient access and support safe, and accessible, quality primary care.  

Most practices have opted to invest their grant across three different (or combined) streams, being enhancing digital capability, upgrading infection control, and maintaining or achieving practice accreditation.

This sends a strong signal that WA general practices understand and value the importance of accreditation and digital health, with the latter not only helping to achieve or maintain accreditation, but also enabling continuous quality improvement.

While we appreciate the GP Grant application process involved additional steps compared to other initiatives practices may have applied for, most WA general practices are now set up as a WAPHA supplier.  The benefit of this to practices is that applications for future funding opportunities, such as those flagged in the May 2023 Federal Budget, will be streamlined. You can keep up to date with current and future grants and programs here.

A reminder that practices with extenuating circumstances (part way through the application process in the WAPHA system and those identified for review with the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care) are still being considered for grant approval. Any practice that has not yet begun their application process will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Please continue to send any queries to the Practice Assist team on 1800 2 ASSIST (1800 2 277 478 or 08 6278 7900) or

Just some of the benefits of accreditation and using digital health technology and tools

  • To be eligible to access financial incentives such as the Practice Incentives Program eHealth (ePIP), a general practice must be accredited or registered for accreditation against the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Standards for general practices.
  • The aim of the Practice Incentive Program is to encourage general practices to keep up to date with the latest changes in digital health and adopt to new digital health technology as it becomes available.
  • Secure electronic methods of communication also support accreditation.
  • Digital Health technology in Accreditation can assist general practice to ensure continuity of care, effective risk management and improved patient safety.
  • Using digital health tools drives high quality data that can be used with confidence to promote optimal patient experience and outcomes.
  • Engaging and developing the practice team in continuous Quality Improvement to confidently use digital health technologies allows the practice to deliver quality health care.
  • Using digital health technologies can assist in reducing business risks to general practice and give a competitive advantage over non accredited practices and service providers.

WA Primary Health Alliance’s Digital Health team is happy to talk to your practice about implementing digital health solutions. Please reach out to


Primary Sense Update 


PIP QI submissions via Primary Sense or JSON file

The way your practice needs to make its PIP QI submission is changing. Some practices will be using Primary Sense for the first time and yet others will be using a JSON file submitted through the WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) portal.

Practices using Primary Sense

For the 84% of eligible practices who have made the change to Primary Sense, from the 1 July 2023 your PIP QI submissions will be completed using data extractions from your practice’s Primary Sense program. Your practice may therefore choose to uninstall your previous data extraction software.

WAPHA appreciates your time and effort in transitioning to Primary Sense. Your feedback will continuously improve the system for clinical use for GPs and for future expanded clinical use in the practice across professions. 

We invite you to join one of our education sessions to make the most of Primary Sense in your practice.

Other practice PIP QI submissions

For the practices who are unable to use, or have opted out of using, Primary Sense for PIP QI data extraction, you will need to make your PIP QI submissions via a JSON file submitted through the WAPHA portal. You will also need to sign a new data sharing agreement to enable this.

If you are yet to begin the process for JSON file submission, please contact Practice Assist on 1800 2 ASSIST (1800 2 277 478 or 08 6278 7900) as soon as possible.

More information

Find more information on Primary Sense on the Practice Assist Website, on the national Primary Sense website, or by contacting Practice Assist.



Primary Sense Education Sessions

We would like to welcome you to attend our education sessions on Primary Sense, WAPHA’s new data extraction, clinical decision support and population health management tool. 

Primary Sense is installed at more than 84% of eligible practices and we look forward to an opportunity to educate, collaborate and network with Practice Managers and Nurses.  

A series of in person sessions in our Subiaco office and virtual sessions for regionally located practices are planned. These follow on from virtual education sessions held in the Perth metropolitan areas.  

These sessions have been designed to introduce Primary Sense to Practice Managers and Nurses whilst also extending on current knowledge and experience using the tool in general practice.  

Metro Sessions (Subiaco WAPHA offices)

A series of Primary Sense education sessions across July and August 2023 will be run at our Subiaco office. Attendance is limited to 20 people per session so please register at your earliest convenience.

Country WA (virtual sessions) 

Two virtual Primary Sense education sessions will be run for WA regional practices. Both sessions will have the same content, providing a demonstration of Primary Sense and giving practice staff with an opportunity to ask questions and learn how to get the most out of the tool. 

 Tuesday 11 July (11am - 12 noon)                    Friday 14 July (1pm - 2pm)

For further information on either our virtual or in person Primary Sense sessions, or to speak to your Primary Care Navigator or QI Coach, please contact Practice Assist on 1800 2 ASSIST (1800 2 277 478 or 08 6278 7900).



Case study using Primary Sense to enhance management of care for vulnerable population

More than 1200 general practices across Australia are now using Primary Sense’s comprehensive range of features and benefits, not previously available to general practice in a single software application, to assist with clinical decision making and continuous quality improvement.
As a GP and Chair of the Primary Sense Clinical Advisory Board, Dr Lisa Beecham has experienced firsthand how it can significantly enhance the management of care, particularly for patients with complex, chronic conditions, and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of practice management.
She uses a case study to illustrate how Primary Sense helped to reduce the risk of hospitalisation in a target group of Gold Coast patients by identifying that 75% of the most high-risk among them were not vaccinated against influenza. Using in consult alerts, the general practices concerned succeeded in vaccinating 45% of these patients.

Feature - Preparing for NAIDOC week in your practice


Celebrating NAIDOC Week 2-9 July 2023

For Our Elders

National NAIDOC Week is 2-9 July 2023.  NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
NAIDOC Week is celebrated by all Australians and is a great opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal communities.
NAIDOC Week is a great way for practices to participate in a range of activities and build relationships with their local Aboriginal community.
The National NAIDOC Theme for 2023 is For Our Elders.

For further details including resources, please visit


2023 National NAIDOC Week Poster

Bobbi Lockyer, a proud Ngarluma, Kariyarra, Nyulnyul and Yawuru artist, born and based on Kariyarra Country in Port Hedland, is the winner of the prestigious National NAIDOC Week Poster Competition for 2023 with her entry, For Our Elders.  Learn more here.


Get involved!

The following are ideas that you might incorporate into your practice’ NAIDOC celebrations.
  • Make Aboriginal Elders feel especially welcome by providing a cuppa while they are waiting for appointments.
  • Celebrate the achievements of local Aboriginal Elders and Aboriginal community members by displaying posters/news articles in your waiting room or staff lunch space.
  • Hold a colouring activity for patients of the practice, and display completed colouring in the practice.
  • Display the NAIDOC poster and/or flyers for local NAIDOC events in your community. Consider promoting these events and acknowledging NAIDOC on your practice’ social media pages/website. Find local NAIDOC events here.
  • Honour and celebrate your practice’s Aboriginal staff or advocate within your practice. Display a sign and photo to recognise the work they do for their community and Aboriginal patients of your practice.
  • Support staff to engage local community by attending local NAIDOC celebrations in your area.
  • Switch music in the waiting room for part of the week to an Aboriginal playlist from Spotify. Or visit Indigitube to look for your local Aboriginal radio station.
  • Add NAIDOC week as a meeting agenda item in the lead-up to NAIDOC week to plan activities in advance.

Cultural awareness and safety training

Cultural awareness and safety training aims to improve the experience and quality of service delivered by health care providers to Aboriginal people. Ultimately cultural safety training leads to better health outcomes for Aboriginal people.
Cultural safety involves actions that recognise, respect, and nurture the unique cultural identity of a person and safely meet their needs, expectations, and rights. It means working from the cultural perspective of the other person, not from your own perspective.
It is recommended that health professionals undertake cultural awareness and safety training by a local provider on a regular basis, and prior to commencing work in Western Australia.
The resources provided below are designed to develop further understanding of Aboriginal culture, and how to deliver culturally appropriate healthcare.

Some QI suggestions to kick start NAIDOC Week within your practice  

  • Creating a culturally safe health environment for Aboriginal peoples by encouraging staff to complete cultural awareness and safety training, and implementing their learning into the practice
  • Raise awareness of available services for Aboriginal peoples
  • Improve collection and recording of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander status
  • Targeting a specific age range within those eligible for the Aboriginal And Torres Strait Islander Peoples Health Assessment MBS 715
  • Ensure eligible patients receive nurse/Aboriginal health practitioner follow-up MBS 10987
  • Utilising recall systems for Aboriginal people
  • Increase the number of Aboriginal patients aged 50-74 who complete bowel cancer screening

Lockridge Medical Centre is helping to improve health services for Aboriginal patients

Lockridge Medical Centre has started the process of developing its own reconciliation action plan (RAP), which is already delivering tangible and substantive benefits for the practice’s Aboriginal* patients and the local community.
Director Natalie Watts explained that the practice began its RAP journey in July 2022 with team members attending free webinars and information sessions through Reconciliation Australia.
“We identified that the framework surrounding the RAP is extensive and it has involved the practice reaching out to the local shires, the City of Swan and the City of Belmont. The meetings have been an excellent source of information and put us in touch with First Nations service providers who have in turn highlighted the benefits and challenges of the RAP journey,” Ms Watts said.
Developing a RAP is a lengthy process and Lockridge Medical Centre anticipates that it will take a minimum of two years to complete. As part of the practice’s RAP journey, the team has been engaging and collaborating with local service providers to improve health services within the community for Aboriginal people.
“The past year has been rewarding, we have gained knowledge of grant pathways to support our First Nations initiatives and continued our engagement with Marr Mooditj Training. Our nursing team works alongside Aboriginal health worker students and we have sourced cultural training for our staff which will be completed this year. All our patients are able to access a safe cultural health service within their local area and we have completed an increased number of health assessments over the past 12 months,” Ms Watts said.
As an example of activities that practices can undertake to celebrate NAIDOC and support Aboriginal patients, Lockridge Medical Centre is hosting a NAIDOC kick-off event on Monday 3 July and providing free walk-in Indigenous health assessments between 10am and 4pm during the week.

For further information about how your practice can contribute towards improving health services for Aboriginal people, contact Practice Assist by emailing or calling 1800 2 ASSIST (1800 2 277 478 or 08 6278 7900).
1. WA Primary Health Alliance uses the term Aboriginal in preference to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, in recognition that Aboriginal people are the original inhabitants of Western Australia.


COVID-19 Updates 


Increase to Medicare support for COVID-19 vaccinations from 1 July 2023

The vaccine suitability assessment MBS items were recently streamlined and simplified to reflect integration of these services into routine care (1 February 2023). These fees will increase on 1 July 2023 in-line with MBS indexation.
For more information, visit MBS Online


Pfizer 12 years+ (Purple) expiry and offboarding

The last of the Pfizer 12 years+(purple) stock has now been delivered. All Pfizer 12 years+(purple) vaccine doses will expire on 30 June 2023.
Please check your fridges on 1 July (the day after expiry) to report any wastage in CVAS.
The vaccines should then be disposed of as per existing state and territory guidelines for the disposal of clinical waste and schedule 4 medication. If there is a wastage event of 10 or more vials a Major Wastage Report will need to be completed in CVAS as soon as possible.
If there are less than 10 vials, the reporting should be completed in the minor wastage section in the weekly Vaccine Stock Management Report due no later than 9pm Friday that week. Once a site’s stock on hand in CVAS shows zero for Pfizer 12 years+(purple) and all reporting has been completed in CVAS for this vaccine product, it will be deactivated on your behalf, unless you have already requested deactivation.


VOC moving to standard business hours from July 1, 2023

From Saturday 1 July 2023, the Vaccine Operation Centre (VOC) operating hours will operate Monday to Friday.9:00am – 5:00pm. VOC can still be contacted at 24 hours a day and on 1800 318 208 during the above operating hours.
If you need to report a cold chain breach (CCB) outside of operating hours, use the CCB reporting form found on the ‘Get Help’ page of your CVAS account or here.
Please email the CCB reporting form to and it will be actioned as a priority the next business day.


Don’t forget to report all COVID-19 and other vaccinations administered to the AIR

It is mandatory under the Australian Immunisation Register Act 2015, for vaccination providers to report all vaccinations administered in Australia to the AIR.
Vaccination providers should use the latest version of their Practice Management Software to make sure they meet reporting requirements.
Every COVID-19 vaccine should be reported to the AIR within 24 hours. If you are providing vaccinations to residents of aged care or disability homes, it is your responsibility as the vaccinator to upload the information to the AIR
Reporting timely, high quality and accurate vaccination information ensures that the AIR maintains a complete and reliable dataset to enable the monitoring of immunisation coverage and administration. It also ensures that individuals have a complete record of their vaccinations that can be provided as evidence for education, employment, and/or travel purposes.


Updated COVID-19 oral treatments fact sheet 

With Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care have updated the oral antiviral treatments fact sheet (updated 8 May 2023).

This fact sheet provides information on new oral treatments, including who may be eligible for the treatments and the process for taking them.

COVID-19 booster advice for target groups

As respiratory illnesses are more common in winter, a COVID-19 booster dose is recommended to address waning of protection against severe COVID-19 and provide an increase in protection against severe illness in targeted groups.

To view the 2023 booster eligibility and recommendations in full, refer to the ATAGI 2023 Booster Advice or the ATAGI Clinical Guidance for COVID-19 vaccine providers.


AIHW Report - Indigenous-specific health checks during the COVID-19 Pandemic (FED)

Following several years of annual growth, the numbers of Indigenous-specific health checks fell in 2020 and 2021 from the pre-pandemic peak in 2019 and were comparable to the numbers in 2017 and 2018. Telehealth health checks, an option introduced at the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic, were initially used commonly but saw a gradual decline over time.

MERS-CoV and Hajj pilgrimage

Key messages

►The Hajj pilgrimage is taking place in Saudi Arabia from 26 June to 01 July 2023.
​►Clinicians should be alert to the small risk of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in returning Hajj pilgrims who present with an influenza-like illness (ILI).
​►For patients with an ILI who have travelled to Saudi Arabia within the past 14 days:
  • isolate the person immediately
  • implement standard, contact, droplet and airborne transmission-based precautions, including the use of gown, gloves, protective eyewear and particulate filter respirator
  • ask about exposure to camels, camel products (e.g. milk), hospitals, or people with acute respiratory illness
  • liaise with an Infectious Disease Physician/Clinical Microbiologist.
​►Notify suspect cases urgently to the local Public Health Unit (or on-call Public Health Physician on 9328 0553 after hours).
  • MERS-CoV is a zoonotic coronavirus which can be transmitted to humans via exposure to infected camels and camel products in the Middle East. Person-to-person transmission can occur, particularly in health care settings.
  • Infection causes an acute lower respiratory disease with pneumonia or pneumonitis and can be severe with a high mortality rate of ~35%.
  • Over 2,000 Australians are expected to travel to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj.
  • Five cases of MERS-CoV have been reported in Saudi Arabia between June 2022 and May 2023.
  • There has not previously been imported cases associated with the Hajj in Australia, although other countries have experienced large nosocomial outbreaks from one imported case.
  • Further information about MERS-CoV, including factsheets for health professionals, is available at

See for infectious disease health alerts.


Hepatitis C Quality Improvement Program

Beyond the C is a national partnership program with General Practice, to find people who may be living with hepatitis C, and to engage and connect them with care.

Beyond the C is a project assisting general practices to complete hepatitis C clinical audits and case finding, receiving individualised support from a Practice Nurse Advisor as well as a $1500 incentive payment.

Liver cancer is the fastest increasing cause of cancer death in Australia, with a 5-year observed survival rate of only 18%, which is well beneath the 70% average of all cancers combined. Chronic hepatitis C, along with chronic hepatitis B, are the leading causes of liver cancer. Hepatitis C is curable and can be managed in primary care, meaning that primary care is critical to the prevention of liver cancer.

A new national program aiming to help eliminate hepatitis C in Australia, is calling on GPs and other health professionals working in primary care, to sign up and help locate the approximately 117,800 Australians who have hepatitis C as of the end of 2020. Following a successful pilot program, the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) has launched its partnership program, Beyond the C, as part of a national initiative to eliminate hepatitis C by 2030. 

Benefits to the practice: 

  1. The Beyond the C program aligns with the new CPD requirements for GPs. At the completion of the project, participating GPs can claim CPD hours under the Measuring Outcomes category.  
  2. By completing the project, practices receive a $1,500 reimbursement payment  
  3. Aligns with the Practice Incentive Program Quality Improvement (PIP QI) payment 

When practices join the program, they’ll have personalised support through ASHM’s Practice Nurse Advisor and local health services, along with ongoing access to a suite of tools and resources to guide you to: 

  • Plan your clinical audit and strengthen quality improvement (QI) skills using a PDSA (Plan, Do, Study, Act) template 
  • Conduct a clinical audit to find hepatitis C cases 
  • Make the most of your medical software system to conduct case-finding 
  • Implement quality improvement activities in your practice. 

Eligibility criteria: 

  1. The practice must be accredited under the National General Practice Accreditation Scheme (NGPA)  
  2. Have the ability to extract data from practice software 
  3. Sign and return a Terms of Reference

Urgent Update: Electronic Prescribing Service

The Department of Health and Aged Care has awarded Fred IT (the parent company of eRX Script Exchange) a four-year contract to supply the nation's new Prescription Delivery Service (PDS) after requests for tender closed in June 2022. Practices that are currently not using eRX Script exchange as their vendor to send electronic prescriptions will need to connect to eRX Script exchange to continue to do so before 1st October 2023.

Existing arrangements with other service providers such as Medisecure will remain in place with the cost of electronic prescribing reimbursed by the Australian Digital Health Agency until the 30 September 2023. Funding for electronic prescribing will then be covered by the National PDS replacing the existing electronic prescription fee and SMS reimbursement framework which has been in place since the introduction of electronic prescribing in 2020.

The Department of Health and Aged Care has released a fact sheet about the transition and steps practices need to take to ensure they can continue to offer electronic prescribing whilst maintaining a cost neutral service.
