Shaping a Healthy Australia is an RACGP national initiative funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health to put general practice at the forefront of tackling physical inactivity and poor diet in Australia. The project aims to:
- Support GPs and general practice teams to encourage behaviour change in their patients around healthy eating, activity and lifestyle
- Develop digital tools, and educational resources, that support GPs and general practice teams to effectively encourage patients to adopt positive lifestyle changes, particularly those with high risk factors
- Develop digital tools for patients regarding achieving a healthy lifestyle
Healthy Habits is the public-facing branding for the project.
