Primary Health Tasmania produces two publications on a regular basis: a twice-yearly magazine showcasing local innovation in health care, and an e-newsletter for general practices.

Primary Health Matters

Primary Health Matters – Tasmania’s primary health magazine – comes out twice a year.

Its feature-length articles showcase innovation in primary, aged and social care across the state.

It’s a blend of stories about what we’re up to, as well as profiles of other people, teams and organisations doing good work to keep Tasmanians healthy and happy.

Our latest issue includes stories about:

  • strengthening social connection in migrant communities 
  • talking to the Tasman community about local health needs
  • the long-term effects of a short-term mindfulness course.
