Expressions of interest now open

We are pleased to announce an opportunity for community and health organisations across the Maranoa Regional Council area to be a part of an innovative approach to chronic disease prevention, early identification, and timely intervention.

Through the trial of the ‘Wellness my Way’ program, participating organisations will play a simple but important role in identifying and engaging community members over the age of 18 who may benefit from improving their health and wellbeing. The support you provide to the Wellness my Way program will see you exploring ways to implement the program into your normal business practices, and encourage individuals to complete an online health and wellbeing assessment. This assessment acts as a gateway to access free and low-cost preventive care through the support of a trained telephone health coach.

Who are we?

Health and Wellbeing Queensland is partnering with South West Hospital and Health Service’s (SWHHS) Healthy Communities Team, and Queensland Health’s Health Contact Centre (HCC) to co-design, implement and evaluate the Wellness my Way pilot.

The pilot will deliver a locally adapted version of the HCC’s Way to Wellness (WTW) health assessment and telephone coaching service. SWHHS will lead the local stakeholder engagement and implementation within the community to ensure local relevance and sustainability, and community voices will inform implementation through local consultation and a continuous quality improvement approach.
