Overview

Northern NSW Local Health District has recently introduced a number of new services as part of the Leading Better Value Care (LBVC) Program.

These new services complement existing services designed to support ongoing management of people with chronic disease within our region, and include:

  • High Risk Foot Service,
  • Knee and Hip Arthritis Service (KAHAS),
  • Renal Supportive Care (RSC),
  • Osteoporosis Refracture Prevention Program.

This event is designed to ensure that participants have a clear understanding of the 4 LBVC services in our region, referral pathways and evidence base behind these services.

Participants will have an opportunity to engage and ask questions of the local service providers.
