Health needs assessment

Our health needs assessments are developed annually in consultation with key stakeholders, including our local hospital and health service, clinicians, service providers, community and consumer representatives. The assessments outline the health and service needs of the population and healthcare system within our region.

We also develop a joint population health report, in partnership with the Metro North Health, to measure the health of the region’s population and provide an overview of the health system.

Following extensive analysis and assessment, the following priority areas were determined. Explore the priority areas by clicking on the links below.

Activity plans

The PHN submits activity work plans providing further details on how our work is responding to the needs identified by the health needs assessment, and the primary healthcare priorities set by the Department.


Evaluation reports

Brisbane North PHN is involved in a wide range of multidisciplinary programs that aim to improve the health of our community. Evaluation reports from these activities are included below.

Geriatric Outreach Assessment Service (GOAS)

An innovative model of care aimed at improving quality of care and reducing potentially preventable Emergency Department presentations and potentially prevented hospitalisations for acutely unwell older persons residing in residential aged care facilities.

For more information on the GOAS project, email agedcareprojects@brisbanenorthphn.org.au.

Mental Health Hubs evaluation report

In 2021, an independent evaluation was completed regarding the Brisbane North mental health Hubs. The purpose of this evaluation was to explore whether this integrated approach improves outcomes for consumers.

The evaluation demonstrated that the Hubs were effective in engaging people living in the community with severe mental illness, led to improvements in psychological distress and recovery outcomes, and met the needs of service users.
