Author information

  • 1Family Medicine Research Centre, University of Sydney, New South Wales.


At a BEACH (Bettering the Evaluation and Care of Health) consultation, up to three patient reasons for attending the encounter (RFE) and up to four diagnoses/problems managed can be recorded by the general practitioner. When there are multiple RFE and problems managed at an encounter, there is no direct link between the two. However, there is a direct association between the problem and its management. Medications can be recorded as prescribed, supplied or advised for over-the-counter purchase.
