This report highlights changes in general practice activity in Australia over the most recent decade (April 2001 to March 2011) of the BEACH program, a national cross-sectional study of general practice activity. Over this time 9801 participating GPs provided details of 981,000 GP-patient encounters. The report highlights changes that have occurred in the characteristics of general practitioners and the patients they see, the problems managed, and the treatments provided. Changes in prevalence of overweight and obesity, smoking status and alcohol use, are also described for subsamples of more than 30,000 adults and 3,000 children each year.
This report is a companion to the annual report, General practice activity in Australia 2010-11.
