community health teams

The Community Health Team (CHT) is a community health model that focuses on the promotion of health and wellness. CHTs support individuals and families to build knowledge, confidence, and skills to help make healthy lifestyle choices and to better prevent and manage risk factors that are common across chronic conditions.  Each CHT collaborates with many partners, and is working to strengthen links across the health system, and involves the participation of the community it serves.  CHTs are led by Primary Health Care at Nova Scotia Health Authority, in partnership with the IWK Health Centre.  For more information, visit www.communityhealthteams.ca

The following is information about an upcoming Community Health Team program at St. Andrews Recreational Centre in Halifax
