Preventing chronic disease: Anticipatory Care Project newsletter

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.
