Primary health care settings are well placed to inform patients on resources in the community to assist in the adoption of more healthy behaviors.  The objectives of the Division's health promotion work are to:

  • Work with community recreation facilities to help patients adopt and sustain positive behaviors that will impact their health;
  • Facilitate physician participation in health promotion activities; and
  • Promote health awareness in concert with national health awareness days.

Work underway:

  • HealtheSteps: Exploring the opportunity to pilot an evidence-based, community-focused, lifestyle prescription program in our community.  This is a patient self-referral program for personalized, virtual or in-person coaching to improve exercise and diet through a 6-month program.
     
  • Physician involvement in local health promotion initiatives: Walk with your Doc and Be Active Every Day.
