Having the opportunity to make deadly choices is empowering. Having the support of the Deadly Choices Program offers communities the option to be supported as they share the knowledge, experience and expertise of a team of dedicated health care practitioners and organisational personnel.
See how the Deadly Choices umbrella of programs can be adopted to suit local community needs, while still operating within the original format. From Brisbane to Bundaberg and beyond, the program works well. The Deadly Choices Program is adaptable, relevant and built around clear health, educational and community needs. The way in which community days allow community engagement is a positive aspect of this story.
Watch this to see how the sharing of ideas, collaborating with community, identifying what works and responding accordingly, leads to the real success of Deadly Choices.
