Health resource for people with intellectual disability
Posted on May 2, 2023
A new flyer is available with tips on what people with intellectual disability can do to stay well.
Primary Health Tasmania (Tasmania PHN) developed the resource with Australian Government funding under a program aimed at enhancing primary care for Tasmanians living with intellectual disability. It is available at tasp.hn/PCEP
The flyer has information about yearly health checks, ‘easy read’ health fact sheets from the Council for Intellectual Disability, and a ‘My Health Matters’ folder aimed at improving communication between people with intellectual disability and their healthcare providers.
