My Health for Life
My Health for Life is a Queensland integrated risk assessment and behaviour modification program that aims to assist participants to reduce their risk of developing chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Based in the community and delivered by local healthcare practitioners, this initiative will identify those at high risk of developing chronic conditions and offer them a tailored, but flexible, healthy lifestyle program.
My health for life works in partnership with GPs, providing patients an opportunity to participate in an evidence-based lifestyle modification program in their local community. Facilitators are trained health professionals, including dietitians and exercise physiologists, who have a keen interest in preventive health.
My health for life is a practical extension of the advice given by GPs to their patients, allowing participants to better understand their lifestyle risks and action their health goals. GPs will be kept informed of their patient’s progress, completing the care cycle.
Although GP referral is recommended, referrals can also be made by a practice nurse, allied health professional or the patient themselves by contacting 13 RISK or visiting the website to complete a health check.
