In doing this, we are changing the way people work in the health and community sector, to make sure the right problems are solved by the right people at the right time.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO

Healthy Quit

a unique and innovative 'quit smoking' program for your staff or community group

Based on the successful pilot program of '#mission2quit' in 2018, Healthy Quit is based on the evidence of what helps people to successfully quit smoking. Healthy Quit is a flexible, hands-on, creative and interactive program  that can be adapted to meet the needs of the. With the pilot program achieving a 64% short-term quit rate, 'Healthy Quit' offers an excting and life-changing opportunity for organisations.

Diabetes education sessions for doctors

We're thrilled to be supporting the John Morris Diabetes Centre Integrated Diabetes Care project, to deliver an educational program for GP's across rural and remote primary healthcare sites, giving them an opportunity to learn from the best in the business and supercharging their knowledge and skills in best practise diabetes care.

Immunisation workshops for GP's, nurses and other health professionals

We're continuing our work with the RFDS on its Right as Rain program to make sure doctors and nurses and other health professionals in rural and remote communities have the information and resources they need to have effective conversations with patients about the importance of immunisation. Importantly, these workshops equip health professionals with a specific skill set, including tips and resources for talking to ‘hesitant immunisers’.

#mission2QUIT

City Mission have been on a #Mission2Quit…smoking. In 2018 we put together the pieces of a complex smoking cessation program that  supported City Mission employees to QUIT smoking. Bravo to the team for tackling this as it can be tough. This unique program brought together Nicotine Replacement Therapy, QUIT chats, counselling and behavioural support across the six weeks.

This Project was funded by the Healthy Tasmania Community Innovations Grants through the Tasmanian Government.

Healthy Hobart Goes Dark

If you’ve ever used ‘it’s too cold and dark’ as a reason to not exercise… sorry. The research tells us that the dark and cold weather does stop people exercising so, along with the City of Hobart, we thought we’d have a crack as fixing that. Healthy Hobart Goes Dark will bounce off the exuberance of the Dark Mofo festival. 
There are 18 unique and innovative sessions all happening in Hobart’s parks and facilities including Puffer Jacket Yoga, Discosize and Medieval Games. The program all begins with a Quidditch session starting on Friday the 15th June 4.30pm at Parliament Lawns.

This Project was funded by the Healthy Tasmania Community Innovations Grants through the Tasmanian Government.

Healthy George Town

George Town is moving into ‘position’; on your marks, get set, go (almost)! We are excited to be supporting the George Town Council to develop a ‘Position Paper’ about developing a community-wide health and wellbeing project. Work done previously tells us about the need for this type of initiative in the rural community so we are ready and waiting to get ‘Healthy George Town’ funded, developed and delivered. Stay tuned.
