The Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing, through the Australian Better Health Initiative (ABHI), determined that education and training of the existing and future health workforce was a key element in assisting patients to better manage their chronic conditions. To begin to build an understanding of what this education and training might entail, two separate but related projects were conducted. These projects aimed to (a) develop a curriculum framework for self-management support education of the future workforce, and (b) determine the skills required for prevention and self-management support of chronic conditions by the current PHC workforce.
