Chronic Disease Management

Brecken Health can help you

If you suffer from Diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, mental illness, arthritis, osteoporosis, in fact, any chronic illness that impacts on your day to day life, we at Brecken Health can help you get the most out of the services available in the community, access to treatment required, and ensure you have the quality of life you deserve, with the support you need.

Given the increasing prevalence of chronic disease and the enormous associated personal, social and economic cost to the community, a wide range of Australian Government programs and initiatives provide assistance in the area of chronic disease, including:

  • Programs to increase access to care and medicines
  • Risk factor prevention and management
  • Programs providing support to people with specific chronic diseases with the aim of reducing the overall burden in these areas.

Chronic diseases are illnesses that are prolonged in duration, do not often resolve spontaneously, and are rarely cured completely1. Chronic diseases are complex and varied in terms of their nature, how they are caused and the extent of their impact on the community. While some chronic diseases make large contributions to premature death, others contribute more to disability. Some may last indefinitely, whereas others may resolve over time2.
