Plaof Care ad Work-up:

Elimiatioof symptoms ad a effective way of workig out this aspect is bysettig up some goals i mid. Settig up goals ca eable theprimary care provider to achieve the iteded eeds of the patieteffectively. Aother pla of care is by maagig orprevetigcomplicatios. The primary care ca work-up towardsmaagig complicatio through employig iterdiscipliary adpatiet-cetered care approaches. Kitso, Marshall, Bassett ad Zeitz(2013) argue that patiet-cetered approach is a effective model icare plaig whe workig with patiets. Ivolvig the cliet idecisio-makig process about their treatmet is effective imaagemet of chroic coditios. For example, the patiet williitiate chage i the treatmet or medicatio process i the face ofa relapse of his disease, usually i close liaiso with thespecialist health care provider team.Maitaiig remissio ofgastroeterology is also aother effective care. The heath care capla reduce heartburs ad other symptoms by offerig effectivemedicatios.


Collaboratioad itegrated are effective strategies i the health care settigbecause they help urses i makig effective care plaig program.Therefore, workig with other healthcare workers ca help i makigeffective health related maagemet decisios. Australia Commissioo Safety ad Quality i Health Care (2010) argue that collaboratiois a effective approach that helps urses to arrive at the effectivedecisios. Maagemet ad care plaig of patiets with chroicdiseases require effective collaboratio (Gill, Duig, McKio,Cook, Bourke, 2014). Collaboratio i care provisios of this clietwill help i decrease of secodary care. By collaboratio, activitiessuch as referral maagemet, treatmet process, cliical assessmetservices ad feedback for advacemet i itegrated care would beachieved effectively.


Aprimary health care provider workig with the patiet aftergastroeterological admissio ca see patiet i a sessio, usuallyequivalet to oe PA. The follow-up primary care provider ca takeabout 10-15 miutes to make follow-ups.Gill.et-al (2014) cocludesthat makig follow-ups ca eable the health care provider todetermie the progress of the patiet.
