Forging new health pathways

Autism HealthPathways are now available for adoption and adaptation in 43 health regions, caring for more than 28 million people across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

HealthPathways is a web-based health information site that assists health practitioners, particularly General Practitioners (GPs), to guide patients through the health system.

HealthPathways Clinical Editor and Mackay GP, Dr Aaron Kennedy, said “These autism-specific pathways are the first of their kind and will be shared across the international HealthPathways community. Importantly, this initiative equips GPs with the tools to help personalise treatment and management to improve the health care journey of autistic people across the lifespan.”

Autism HealthPathways are the result of more than two years work under an Autism CRC research and development project.
