The Education Interface Program will be delivered state-wide through a video conferencing forum.

The Education Interface Program will aim to achieve the following:

  • Improve interface between primary health and secondary acute care facilities
  • Enable primary health services to support and manage cardiac clients in the community setting, seeking timely secondary opinions through quality referral process
  • Enhance knowledge base of evidence-based models of care relating to specific cardiac conditions
  • Increase awareness of primary and secondary prevention
  • Improved identification of at-risk clients (Australian Absolute Cardiovascular Disease Risk Calculator)


This webinar will explore the concept of high risk primary prevention and anticipatory care. It will demonstrate the use of cardiovascular risk calculators from Australia, New Zealand and Scotland.  Risk factor modification for high risk patients will be explored.
