Lifestyle Risk Factors

The Primary Health Network is dedicated to helping the communities in the Hunter New England and Central Coast region. Lifestyle risk screening provides an opportunity for General Practices to better understand their patient populations and deliver targeted preventative care and management. Lifestyle risk factors include alcohol and smoking intake and allergies.

Here you will find resources and information that will assist your practice with the development of strategies to routinely screen your patients, improve practice systems to support patients at risk and integrate quality improvement activities.

Bounce into better health & wellbeing

The PHN recently launched a campaign designed to encourage and raise awareness of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and to support local primary health practitioners’ efforts in preventative care. The “Bounce into better health & wellbeing campaign” will support the Hunter New England and Central Coast areas and provide primary health professionals access to tools and resources to improve preventative care of patients across the region.

Being overweight, obese or underweight is a major public health issue, as well as being a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and other chronic diseases.
