Together, we can create a healthier North Coast
Chronic Disease impacts everyone involved in managing our populations health. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare estimated that in 2021 almost half of us lived with one or more chronic conditions.
These long-term conditions continue to pose a significant burden on individuals, families, North Coast communities and the healthcare system. The impact of chronic diseases extends beyond physical health, affecting mental well-being and overall quality of life.
GPs, Nurses, Allied Health Professionals and Practice Managers care for the health of North Coast communities by managing chronic diseases in their practice everyday.
Healthy North Coast warmly invites you to join us at your closest Chronic Disease Clinical Society Forum.
The forum will be held in two locations: Port Macquarie and Lismore.
What to expect:
The Chronic Disease Management Forum is a one-day education event that offers profession-specific streams for primary health professionals, catering to the unique role you play in your patient’s interdisciplinary team.
You’ll also have the chance to have interdisciplinary networking and cross-collaboration case studies.
Register now for your closest Chronic Disease Forum for:
- A vast range of chronic disease management topics
