Care coordination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

 

Overview

The Care coordination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders program aims to identify and contribute to improved health outcomes for Indigenous people, and reduce the number of emergency and acute care admissions.

The program employs care coordinators to work with general practitioners in developing chronic disease management plans for their Indigenous patients, and assist the patient in accessing allied health, specialists services, and support them with chronic disease self management.

The program also employs Closing the Gap Aboriginal Outreach Workers who assist patients by providing transportation, advocacy and support to attend health appointments, and assistance with pharmacy.

This program is an initiative of the Northern Adelaide Medicare Local.
