Improve Secondary Prevention Programs for Aboriginal People with Cardiovascular Disease

 

Overview

This project aimed to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation in heart rehabilitation and secondary prevention service programs in Victoria.

Stage One investigated interstate models which had been effective in helping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to participate in rehabilitation after a heart attack or surgery.

Stage Two involved the planning and implementation of a secondary prevention model of care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Victoria. Two Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOS) were supported to implement the model of care.
