Medical outreach Indigenous chronic disease program - Western Australia

 

Overview

The Medical outreach Indigenous chronic disease program (MOICDP) aims to increase access for Indigenous people to health services offered by visiting health professionals for the treatment and management of chronic diseases. The chronic diseases covered include: diabetes; cardiovascular disease; chronic respiratory disease; chronic renal (kidney) disease; and cancer. MOICDP supports a model of service delivery that includes a multi-disciplinary team approach.

The project is a consolidation of two existing Indigenous chronic disease programs: Medical specialist outreach assistance program - Indigenous chronic disease and Urban specialist outreach assistance program. MOICDP will build on the services provided under these programs and establish new services which focus on the prevention, detection, and management of chronic conditions among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in urban, rural, remote, and very remote areas of Western Australia.

The program will be delivered in parallel with the Rural health outreach fund program.

Funding is available to support service providers who provide outreach services. Please refer to the links below for further information for funding.
