Determining local health needs
Murray PHN generates a full Needs Assessment every three years and updates it annually to reflect local emerging or changing issues.
The Needs Assessment is a population health-based analysis of the health needs of our communities. Combined with the national health priorities set by the Commonwealth Government, our Needs Assessment helps Murray PHN determine our region’s local health priorities. Those priorities in turn inform our Activity Work Plans, which are the ‘blueprints’ for our work and the effective distribution of funding.
