Summary: The improvement of primary health care delivery is an urgent national priority. This research will address the current lack of understanding of the new kinds of professional practices that are required to reshape primary health care in Australia. By focusing on the active role of learning and technology in the new practices, this research will provide theoretical and practical resources that will contribute to the achievement of professional practices that are multidisciplinary, integrated and patient-responsive. The outcomes of this research will benefit health service providers, health practitioners, patients and communities as well as policy makers engaged in the redesign of healthcare services delivery and health systems.
