The principles and philosophy of primary healthcare, health promotion and community development practice will be called upon in exploring the health of individuals and communities. Health professionals need to develop their capacity for empathy and understanding of the lived experience of vulnerable population groups as well as pathways for treatment and possible barriers to accessing these.

Understanding these principles and philosophies is critical in developing appropriate community nursing care. Without understanding the fundamentals underpinning any profession, it can be difficult to appreciate why procedures are delivered in the way they are.

In Australia, eight common chronic conditions contribute to

  • 61% of the burden of disease
  • 37% of hospitalisations
  • 87% of deaths (based on underlying or associated causes of death)

The eight conditions are arthritis, asthma, back pain, cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, and mental health conditions. (AIHW, 2018)

In addition, The National Strategic Framework for Chronic Conditions has identified nine Priority Target Populations, those that are negatively impacted by chronic conditions more than the general population. This is demonstrated by a higher prevalence of chronic conditions and a greater burden of disease in these populations resulting in inequitable health outcomes.

Primary health care is essential for improving health outcomes now and in the future.
