Primary Health Tasmania (Tasmania PHN) is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation working to connect care and keep Tasmanians well and out of hospital.

We are one of 31 PHNs around the country under the Australian Government’s Primary Health Networks Program.

We engage at the community level to identify local health needs and work with health system partners and providers on innovative solutions to address service gaps, including through commissioning services.

We support general practice and other community-based providers to deliver the best possible care for Tasmanians.

We are driving a collaborative approach to ensure people moving through all parts of the health system receive streamlined care.

Part of our work involves supporting quality palliative and end-of-life care for Tasmanians, under the Australian Government’s Greater Choice For at Home Palliative Care Measure.

A current priority for us under this program is increasing access to education and support for primary care medical, nursing and allied healthcare providers involved in delivering palliative care and end-of-life care.

Tasmanian HealthPathways – our online information portal for primary health clinicians – includes helpful Pathways about palliative care, advance care planning, and management of certain health conditions in their palliative stages.
