The Audit and Best Practice for Chronic Disease (ABCD) Extension project was an action research project designed to improve the quality of services for the prevention and management of chronic disease among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia. This report draws on analyses of data from use of the quality improvement tools in health centres from 2005 to 2009; data from community survey tools; report templates; and purposively structured dialogue and in-depth interviews with implementers and other key informants. It aims to synthesise lessons that have been learned from these diverse data sources about the factors that are important for effective implementation of the ABCD approach and to identify areas for further research.
