ABSTRACT

BackgroundThe objective of the study was to determine the level of guidance provided by or to government health departments across different regions of Australia on publicly funded bariatric surgery.MethodsBariatric surgery policies and guidelines were sought from each Australian state (n = 6) and territory (n = 2) government health department and compared in relation to their origins, level of guidance on patient eligibility and priority, as well as recommendations for patient care, including follow-up surgical services. Comparison with national guidelines on bariatric surgery from Australia, the UK and USA was also made.ResultsFive of the eight states and territories had policies or guidelines informing practice. There was little uniformity among regional guidelines and variable consistency with national guidelines (e.g., defining obesity related comorbidity). Recommendations differed on patient eligibility, and none of the state documents mentioned re-operative bariatric or body-contouring surgery. There was limited guidance on prioritisation of eligible patients and gastric banding adjustments. Pre- and post-surgical multidisciplinary care was generally recommended.ConclusionsPolicies and guidelines on publicly funded bariatric surgery are highly variable across Australia and at times inconsistent with national guidelines. Insufficient guidance exists regarding the prioritisation of eligible patients and follow-up surgical services. These findings have implications for policy, research and practice and are particularly important in health service environments with resource constraints and inequitable patient access to services.
