CAFÉ Health: Discussing health differently!

This story has been reproduced with the permission of Prevention Victoria.
https://prevention.health.vic.gov.au/

Life is full of stress and challenges, but why do some people remain in good health through the hard times and others do not?

CAFÉ Health (Community and Friendly Engagement for Health) is creating community spaces for conversations about the health and wellbeing issues that affect rural citizens and communities.

CAFÉ Health gives people in the Wimmera region, particularly newcomers and socially isolated people, the opportunity to integrate and be part of the community. It is all about connection with and among local citizens to build relationships and networks, with the aim of addressing isolation and exclusion.

Listening, facilitating, supporting and educating is a two-way street. CAFÉ Health meetings are facilitated by Health Promotion Officers from West Wimmera Health Service, and provide easy access to health education in a comfortable community setting while also allowing the Health Promotion team to build networks on the ground and better understand community needs and priorities.

The program engages people to identify opportunities for increased health and wellbeing in local towns. Community members typically identify a project or activities that they would like to pursue and WWHS Health Promotion staff support them to bring these to fruition.

The underlying principle to the meetings is that expansion of health literacy is supported and regional priority areas of social connection, healthy eating and active living are implemented in an understated and localised way.

Sessions are held in local cafes if possible, to support local businesses, but may also be held in other suitable community spaces if need be. For example, in Jeparit, the group meets at the local Pioneer Museum. It has been a conscious choice to meet away from WWHS infrastructure.

CAFÉ Health meetings are held monthly in each town. People are encouraged to `bring a friend’. There is no pressure to attend every meeting, though most people do.

Mobilise your community – it can be as simple as a cup of coffee!

Orthopaedic Surgery Starts Again

West Wimmera Health Service is delighted to have recommenced its orthopaedic theatre services last month after an extended break due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Chief Executive Officer, Ritchie Dodds is thrilled to welcome back Dr Chi Gooi to the Nhill Hospital. Ritchie shared that he has received positive feedback from staff and recent patients about their joy at being able to have surgery undertaken locally once again.

Ritchie said, “Their relief is clear, as is their gratitude for being able to receive these services so close to home.”

Ritchie continued, “It has been a difficult time for so many people who have been forced to wait for knee and hip surgery to recommence due to the extenuating circumstances of the restrictions that were understandably required for the safety of everyone.”

Orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Chi Gooi, returned to the Nhill Hospital Operating Theatre on 9 February, after border closures and Victorian lockdowns impacted the specialist’s travel from South Australia. Dr Gooi had not been onsite in Nhill since early 2021.

Ritchie thanked the community for their patience and understanding during the temporary cessation of orthopaedic surgery services.

He also showed his appreciation for the many people in the health service surgical team for their patience and hard work during this time.

“Well done and thank you to our Nhill Theatre, Acute, and Pre-Admission teams, and of course our visiting specialist, Dr Chi Gooi. We’re very fortunate to have such skilled and caring people.”

Ritchie concluded, “It is great be able to once again provide this vital service at a local level and to help people in our communities avoid the need to travel further distances to access orthopaedic surgery. And this also goes for our much valued ophthalmology (eye surgery) service headed up by Dr Mark Chehade. We’re very lucky.”

For enquiries about any of the theatre and consulting services, people can contact West Wimmera Health Service on 5391 4222.

Don't forget your health checks! It's Time to Be Seen Again.

Have you put off going to the doctor, or delayed having your annual check up during the COVID-19 pandemic? Has it been a long time since you checked-in on your health?

Don't let the guilt or worry delay you any longer - now is the perfect time to catch up with your healthcare.

We are encouraging people to catch up and keep up on health checks you may have missed since the beginning of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Caring for your health and wellbeing is crucial, but unfortunately since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic there’s been a decline in the number of people accessing regular healthcare and check-ups.

Several lockdowns and changing restrictions have resulted in delays for people getting routine tests, especially for cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Regular health checks can help to identify early warning signs of disease or illness. Heart disease, diabetes and some cancers can often be picked up in their early stages, when treatment may be more successful.

You can perform some basic health checks in your home such as: checking your skin regularly for new or changing moles; checking your teeth when you brush and floss; being aware of changes in bowel habits; checking for breast lumps or other unexplained changes; and monitoring your alcohol consumption, weight, or smoking behaviour.

If you notice a change, you don't feel confident to do home checks, or have questions, you should visit your doctor.

Routine general health checks and common tests for you to talk with your GP or community health nurse include:
• Cholesterol check
• Diabetes screening
• Blood Pressure check
• Screening for breast cancer and being aware of any changes in your breasts or nipples
• Cervical Screening Test
• Bowel Cancer Screening Test
• Ensuring immunisation schedules are up-to-date
• Skin Cancer checks and watching for changes in, or new or unusal looking moles
• Prostate Cancer Screening
• Viral Hepatitis Screening
• Oral Health checks with your Dentist

If you are unsure how to access health screenings, please contact our friendly Intake team on 5391 4292 and they can guide you.
