Chronic conditions program

 

Overview

The Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health (the CRCAH - now hosted by the Lowitja Institute) has a Chronic conditions program that seeks to minimise the impact of chronic conditions in Indigenous communities. The goal is to improve chronic conditions prevention, early detection and management services and strategies to reduce the impact of chronic conditions in Indigenous communities.

The Chronic conditions program focuses on diabetes, cardiovascular and renal disease, but takes a holistic approach to health and is closely linked to other cooperative research centres for Indigenous health research programs. The program will use an integrated approach to bring together community, industry and research stakeholders to share ideas, questions, skills and resources; to incorporate research-transfer activities; and to support capacity development at the community level, as well as among the workforce and in the research world.

Research priorities identified in 2006 led to the development of four main projects under this program:

In addition to the above, a range of other program activities is occurring in the Chronic conditions program.
