How do we do it?
- By Practicing Evidenced Based Internal Medicine
The foundation for good medical practice is, the scientific evidence that the treatments actually work.
Sources of evidence are summarised in the CARI (Caring for Australians with Renal Impairment) guidelines, which are published and available to you on the internet.
- By Practicing the Art of Internal Medicine
Practicing Internal Medicine solely on an evidenced based approach, is but a part of patient care.
Respecting a patient’s wishes or opinions (autonomy), doing no harm, and seeking only to use treatments that give rise to better health and quality of life, and mixing that with a substantial dose of experience, compassion and common sense, is what the Art of Medicine is all about.
- By Pragmatically Dealing with Death
It is important a patient is informed of their treatment particularly if it is becoming futile. We do not “stand in the way” of a patient who wishes to withdraw from medical treatment.
We are Speedy and Efficient
We accelerate appointments with other medical or paramedical personnel, minimising the down time and waiting for tests.
For those patients who are candidates for transplantation, we accelerate their routine tests to access the cadaveric transplant list or give effect to live kidney donation, if they have a relative or altruistic person willing to donate a kidney.
Moving “The System” to make it work takes up a lot of our time.
We expeditiously publish letters and reports to referring doctors.
We have an appointment system that has a high degree of certainty communication and a formidable flow of patients is maintained. Making the “System” work.
