Health Promoting Practices



The Health Promoting Practices (HPP) pilot project supports health professionals in promoting healthy lifestyle messages with their patients.

Practitioners will discuss four key health behaviours – healthy eating, physical activity, alcohol consumption and tobacco use – with each patient as appropriate, encouraging patients to take
control of their own health and wellbeing.

The pilot will be initially implemented within selected dental and physiotherapy practices.

The HPP project is a partnership between the Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch, Australian Physiotherapy Association Victorian Branch, Dental Health Services Victoria and the Victorian Department of Health, funded by the Victorian Department of Health.
