Disease prevention

Much of Primary Health Tasmania’s work supports disease prevention across all three levels: primary, secondary, and tertiary.

Disease prevention is a wide-ranging area, and applies to a lot of Primary Health Tasmania’s programs.

That’s why we’ve created an A4 visual resource to summarise how we support disease prevention.

Supporting the Tasmanian primary healthcare workforce in disease prevention

Primary Health Tasmania also has a role in building and supporting the capacity and capability of the Tasmanian primary healthcare workforce to carry out disease prevention work.

To do this, we develop tools and resources to support integrated care, such as the Moving on Up Framework (which outlines best practice for supporting a young person with a chronic condition as they transition to adult care).

We also support workforce training and development, and provide connections between peak bodies, consumers, and the workforce itself.
