In Australia most people access healthcare through community-based primary care such as general practice (GP), pharmacy and allied health. This study aims to explore the processes of primary care for older people with diabetes. Specifically, it will investigate the relationship between best practice primary care and health outcomes including quality of life and hospitalisation. This research will enable a better understanding of the role of best practice primary health care for participants living with diabetes in Australia and how this care can be improved.
