Walgan Tilly Project: Chronic Care for Aboriginal People



The Chronic Care for Aboriginal People (Walgan Tilly) Clinical Services Redesign Project was developed from a number of established New South Wales (NSW) health initiatives in an attempt to address the disparities in health care and improve access to and utilisation of chronic care services for Aboriginal people in NSW.

The main goals of the project were:

The project was underpinned by the principles of collaboration and partnership and redesign methodologies were used to review the patient journey of the Aboriginal person (aged 15 and over) who has, or is at risk of having, one or more chronic conditions.

The project achieved a number of milestones and outcomes of the project were several state-wide, area health service and justice health solutions as well as recommendations for the next steps of the project.
