The Community Health Team (CHT) is a community health model that focuses on the promotion of health and wellness. CHTs support individuals and families to build knowledge, confidence, and skills to help make healthy lifestyle choices and to better prevent and manage risk factors that are common across chronic conditions. There are currently only two CHTs. The Dartmouth CHT serves the city of Dartmouth, while the Chebucto CHT serves the communities of Halifax Mainland (Larry Uteck Blvd. to Sambro). CHTs are led by Primary Health Care at Capital Health, in partnership with IWK Primary Health.
In particular, Primary Health at the IWK is leading initiatives related to parenting (Incredible Years™ parenting program), youth engagement, and wellness navigation for children, youth and families.
