The Institute for the Study for Social Change is thrilled to be working with a range of partners and four Tasmanian communities to develop strategies to prevent chronic disease.
Take a look at the first Anticipatory Care Project newsletter (PDF 616KB).
Anticipatory care is a population approach to health care. It identifies and supports people who are at risk of developing chronic conditions with the aim of preventing or slowing down ill-health.
The four Tasmanian communities involved are:
- Ulverstone – led by the Patrick Street Clinic.
- Flinders Island – led by Flinders Island Aboriginal Association (FIAAI) together with the Flinders Island Health Co-ordination Group.
- Northern suburbs of Launceston – led by Starting Point Neighbourhood House and the Northern Suburbs Community Centre (NSCC), and
- Clarence – led by Clarence City Council.
