Summary of the RAd Trial
Regular health checks are important to maintain young people’s mental, physical and emotional well being. GPs and nurses want to deliver these health checks, but barriers such as lack of consultation time can make this difficult.
One of the key obstacles for delivering health check- ups for young people is limited available time for appointments. The RAd health trial is investigating whether providing a Medicare rebate will help enable doctors and nurses to provide this care, resulting in better health outcomes for young people as actual and potential health issues are addressed.
