Gout is common and increasing in prevalence in Australia and worldwide. It is associated with multiple significant comorbidities and functional disability. Despite widely available and effective pharmacotherapy, management remains suboptimal with low rates of urate-lowering therapy initiation and target uric acid levels being achieved. GPs play an important role in primary care-led management of gout and in helping to improve patient outcomes.
