Western Australia - Appendix D - Jurisdictional Responses - Review of Cardiovascular Disease Programs

Page last updated: 03 May 2012

The Cardiovascular, Diabetes Endocrine, Neurosciences & the Senses and Renal Health Networks have developed condition specific overarching Models of Care that provide a statewide policy framework for the delivery of cardiovascular healthcare. The Models of Care have been developed with reference to and are informed by the National Service Improvement Framework for Heart, Stroke and Vascular Disease. They cover strategies across the continuum of disease from Primary Prevention (the Well Population), Early Detection (Population at Risk), Secondary Prevention (Minimising the progression and consequences of disease), Specialist Services (Co-ordinated management of the advanced established condition) to End Stage Disease (e.g. Dialysis and Transplant services, amputation or palliation).

The following table provides an overview of the reported programs and strategies.

  • Reduce risks (3)
  • Early detection (7,16,17)
  • Acute episode (18,22)
  • Long term (24,30)
  • Advanced care (31,33)
Chronic Kidney Disease Model of Care
  • Early detection (10,12)
  • Long term(25)
Heart Failure Model of Care
  • Reduce risks (4)
  • Early detection (7,8,9,11,13,14)
  • Acute episode (18,22,23)
  • Long term (24,28,29,30)

  • Long term (24,28,29)
  • Advanced care (31,32,33,34)
There are models of care are in development that deal with other aspects of cardiovascular health: Acute Coronary Syndromes (in progress), Optimising Vascular Health (prevention), Diabetic High Risk Foot, Peripheral Arterial Disease of the Lower limb.
  • Reduce risks (1,2,3,5)
  • Early detection (7,8,9,11,14,16)
  • Acute episode (18,20,22,23)
  • Long term (24,27,28,29,30)
  • Advanced care (31,32,33,34)
