In 2019 the Central West Gippsland PCP undertook a community consultation across Latrobe Valley:
- to find out about how people manage their health
- focusing on common chronic illnesses including diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, heart failure and COPD.
- to identify ways to improve health services.
The project was an externally funded action through the Latrobe Health Assembly and an initiative of the Latrobe Health Innovation Zone.
Central West Gippsland PCP recruited local community members to up-skill them as 'Peer Facilitators' to undertake the community consultations.
