COVID-19 Update - Impact on the Healthy Heart Program and cardiac education service
Healthy Living NT’s Healthy Heart Program and cardiac education service is now being delivered via individual phone consultations from our health professional staff.
Cardiac education services
Healthy Living NT education services are supported by Northern Territory Government and are free for people with heart disease and all types of diabetes, including pre-diabetes living in the Northern Territory.
Location of services
Healthy Living NT has cardiac education services based in Darwin and Alice Springs, we also service remote communities throughout the Northern Territory through Commonwealth funding. Our professionals can also provide education services by telephone or email where a client is unable to attend an appointment in person. All services are provided by qualified cardiac nurse educators and dietitians.
Cardiac education services include group and individual education to clients and their families or carers run by qualified diabetes and cardiac nurse educators and dietitians, either in our offices or out in remote communities or by phone. Family members, significant others and carers are encouraged to attend education sessions, as this can assist with management and understanding of a client’s condition. Contact us if you would like to access our programs. If you need an interpreter, please let us know.
