Living with Osteoarthritis
Project Health was involved in the development of a guide designed for people who have osteoarthritis of the hip and/or knee. It aims to help people understand their condition so that they can share in decision making about their health and better manage their condition.
The information kit:
- Explains osteoarthritis and how it may affect your life
- Provides information about medicines and other non drug therapies to guide you in deciding what treatment is best for you
- Helps you to take steps to maintain and improve your quality of life
ARA Medicine Information Sheets
Project Health has a longstanding relationship with the Australian Rheumatology Association (ARA) and has been involved in the development and review/update of Medicine Information Sheets.
There are currently over 30 information sheets covering a range of rheumatology medications. The information sheets are reviewed each year and revised using feedback from patients focus groups and new information.

Project Health has been involved in a number of community based communication / social marketing campaigns, including a campaign to promote attendance at kindergarten amongst communities in the Shire of Yarra Ranges (Kids Take Off At Kindergarten) and an implementation guide for the Walking Scool Bus program.
We also assisted in the development of a web-based resource to provide information for pregnant teenagers (Hey Babe! What if you're pregnant?), which won the Health and Wellbeing Category at the 2008 National Awards for Local Government.
