Self-management resources designed to support people to detect risk early and encourage people to respond to concerns by accessing information or relevant primary health service providers. Physical Health Cards are offered to the client by support worker. Recently reviewed and updated: change of language and added health risk cards to detect risk early e.g: questions around active cardiovascular assessment , LGBTI+ card added, diet & nutrition, memory and concentration, cervical screening (was pap smear). Packs will be created which will be available for sale to other organisations and instructional videos as a training tool for the PH cards have been created as an additional tool for support workers using the cards. They have the online platform for support workers and clients (internal only), called physicards online. The client can select a card, read through common questions a GP would ask and if they want further information they can select from the links provided to other organisations eg: Australia Government health factsheets, Kidney Health, Sleep Health Foundation. They can also choose to call Health Direct or other health services; this is all on the card.
