Page last updated: 2012

Patient Survey

Socio-demographic characteristics of the patient sample, such as age group, gender, employment status, country of birth, Aboriginality, marital status, health insurance status and GP Super Clinic attendance characteristics, are presented using frequency distributions. The percentage of respondents who agreed or strongly agreed with each reason for attending the GP Super Clinics, and the percentage who reported that their clinicians had sometimes or always discussed lifestyle risks, screening and management of health conditions are reported with 95% confidence intervals. Confidence intervals for proportions were adjusted for clustering of patients within clinics using the survey commands in Stata.

Clinician Survey

Socio-demographic characteristics of the clinician sample, such as age group, gender and employment category, are presented using frequency distributions. The percentage of clinicians are reported with 95% confidence intervals who: rated the importance of each of the elements of the GP Super Clinics Program as high or very high (levels 4 or 5); considered that each of these elements was being extensively or fully implemented (levels 4 or 5); agreed or strongly agreed with factors supporting multi-disciplinary care; and reported that they sometimes or always discussed aspects of patients’ preventative health care.
