Fighting Heart Disease

Posted on: Thu 19 Oct 2017

Did you know that 1 in 12 Australian’s die from heart disease? A statistic far too chilling.

A push from the Australian Health Policy Collaboration for GP’s to use an online assessment tool to help prevent the disease has been launched, following the submission of the paper ‘Heart Health: the first step to getting Australian’s health on track’ to Canberra on Tuesday 17 October 2017.

The paper recommends a national investment in health screening and outlines a national primary care strategy to prevent thousands dying prematurely from heart disease.

Breakfast host Tom Jordan chatted with Professor Rosemary Calder from the Australian Health Policy Collaboration at Victoria University to discuss the issue further.
