Our Allied Health Program is designed to meet the needs of local allied health providers working in primary care. We aim to engage and support their education and practice needs, increase the level of multidisciplinary partnering to improve patient health outcomes and develop systems that enhance effectiveness, efficiency and quality in allied health service provision throughout the ACT.

Live Healthy Canberra

Capital Health Network recently launched a new easy to use online directory to connect Canberrans with physical activity programs, nutrition support services and social participation opportunities, in an effort to keep people active and well.

The LiveHealthyCanberra directory is a one stop shop connecting people in the Canberra region with programs and services that aim to improve health and reduce the risk of chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and other lifestyle related diseases.

If you have a program or service that you would like considered for inclusion on the directory, please make an application using the form found on the Registration Information Page.

LiveHealthyCanberra was established by Capital Health Network and has been developed with the support of ACT Health as part of the Healthy Weight Initiative.
