Healthy Primary Care is a research team from Griffith University, Australia.

We believe that successful health care systems of the future will keep people well rather than respond to poor health. 

Our goal is to reorient primary health care services and systems to focus on healthy lifestyles and healthy environments.

Healthy Primary Care works with community members, health professionals, education providers and professional bodies to conduct research on how people can be better supported in primary care to eat well and live well.

We implement interventions and programs so that doctors, nurses, dietitians, nutritionists, pharmacists and other health professionals feel confident in nutrition and have the skills to best meet patients’ needs.

We work with Primary Health Networks to improve primary care services to put nutrition and other lifestyle behaviours at the forefront of the primary care system.
