Whats Happening ?

bcchs Ophelia group photo2OPHELIA - an exciting new project aimed at improving a person's ability to seek, understand and use health information and healthcare services. Bass Coast Community Health is one of eight Victorian health service providers participating in the Ophelia (Optimising HEalth LiterAcy) project in collaboration with Deakin and Monash Universities and the Victorian Department of Health. The project will assist with the development of a Health Literacy Response Framework to guide health services response to the health literacy needs of their community.

Paul Greenhalgh pictured second from the left, the Ophelia Project Coordinator at BCCH said "Clients living with chronic disease require navigation through a maze of health information and health care services. I anticipate that Bass Coast Community Health will gain the knowledge, skills and competencies required to build capacity to improve the delivery of our services to meet the different health literacy needs of our community". Pictured with Paul to his left is Professor Richard Osborne, Deakin University; Alyce Cuman, Bass Coast Community Health; Vice-Chancellor Professor Jane den Hollander, Deakin University; and John Shaw, Bass Coast Community Health President photo taken by Simon Fox Photography

The Mens Shed

San Remo Men's Shack!

The Shack is part of the Mens Shed Program that is a movement across Australia providing particular support to men's health and wellness in a familiar environment. For more information please phone the Men's Shed Coordinator (03)5671 9200.

The vision is to:

  • Ease the transition of men from full-time employment to other activities in retirement;
  • Establish a place for men that enabled social interaction and activities to maintain the health and well-being of those men;
  • Provide support to men in need of help arising from mental illness or other  debilitating illnesses;
  • Build a culture in the sheds where all men are welcome and where mutual respect and trust are paramount;
  • Provide an additional link between the primary health network and the many men who have no regular contact with that network;
  • Become a focal point in the community for the identification of men's health issues and actions to resolve those issues.
