Illawarra Shoalhaven Medicare Local - otitis media program



The Illawarra Shoalhaven Medicare Local- otitis media program aims to enhance the capacity of primary health care providers in the Illawarra Shoalhaven region of New South Wales (NSW) to provide high quality treatment for otitis media (OM) in Indigenous children.

The program will provide practices located in areas of high need with support to train their staff in providing quality ear health checks for children aged 3-12 years. In addition, Koori child health clinics will be supported to deliver professional development to Aboriginal health workers and nurses throughout the region on the utilisation of the updated Clinical care guidelines on the management of otitis media in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations.
