Area based approach to system management and population health planning Improve ability of Health and Aged Care (H&AC) to identify priorities and address service gaps and inequities in local communities. Build capacity within H&AC programs and NWMR funded agencies through organisational and workforce development. Increase efficient and effective work practices in H&AC by streamlining communication with funded agencies i.e. Lead PASA role.
Place A place or area usually ranges from a neighbourhood to a local government area which differs considerably in size and population density. Thus, place-based interventions may use varying definitions or size boundaries for place.
