QHA Services

A key role of the QHA is to provide “education in self-management” for high blood pressure.

Services offered by the QHA do not interfere with anti-hypertensive treatment and advice provided by the patient’s own doctor. In fact, these services complement and assist them.


The Benefits of QHA  Membership:

  • Subject to a new corporate sponsorship negotiation - the sale and maintenance and accuracy check of inexpensive “aneroid” or fully automated home blood pressure machines (regular or large-sized cuffs are available), and instructions by trained personnnel in their correct use;

  • Advice on improved lifestyle modifications including exercise and relaxation programs, self-measurement of BP, weight reduction, cholesterol-lowering diets and alcohol and smoking control;

  • Advice on the avoidance of dietary salt, including low-salt recipes and foods, important in prevention and control of high blood pressure; and

  • Educational materials containing information on hypertension and lifestyle management.


Education and awareness:

The QHA also provides information to patients, health professionals and the general public through:

  • Appearance at health promotional events, and

  • Regular meetings, held every second month at Greenslopes Private Hospital in Brisbane, with a different educational topic covered at each meeting.
