The Enhancing Primary Health Care for Veterans project aims to equip General Practice professionals across Australia with the knowledge, confidence and resources to deliver effective and appropriate health care for defence veterans.

Under this project, Northern Australia Primary Health Limited (NAPHL) is delivering a series of education events and resources for General Practitioners, Practice Nurses and Practice Managers around defence veteran health pathways, processes, prevalent health issues, culture, barriers and enablers that impact on accessing care. 

To support this, a marketing campaign and series of marketing materials has been developed that encourages defence individuals and their families to attend GP appointments and identify themselves as ex-serving personnel.

This event is supported by funding from Northern Queensland Primary Health Network (NQPHN) through the Australian Government’s PHN Program.
