Latest issue of Primary Health Matters out now!

Posted on November 6, 2020

The latest edition of Primary Health Tasmania’s twice-yearly magazine, Primary Health Matters, is out now!

This edition explores the COVID-19 response, from talking to health workers on the testing frontline and those making personal protective equipment, to hearing from Primary Health Tasmania’s commissioned providers about the experience of providing care during a pandemic.

At the same time, the latest issue also includes stories about the importance of storytelling in suicide prevention, as well as how our alcohol and other drug providers link in with the criminal justice system to help people regain control of their lives.

Then there’s Tasmania’s dementia-friendly residential aged care facility, and an illuminating interview with Associate Professor Louise Stone.

You can read a digital copy of the magazine here.
