Description

This audiovisual presentation explains TEAMSnet, a program to reduce diabetes related blindness and combat chronic disease among Indigenous Australians. Visons uses interviews with the University of Melbourne's, Associate Professor Sven-Erik Burcell; the Chief Executive Officer of the Fred Hollows Foundation, Brian Doolan; and Associate Professor, Eosse Lamoureux, from the Centre for Eye Research Australia; to detail how the development of a mobile, web-based, disease management tool will empower Indigenous Health Workers (IHW) to care for the eye health of people at a local, community level.

TEAMSnet facilitates the monitoring and timely treatment of patients in rural and remote areas and accesses the specialist diagnostic services of clinics in Sydney and Melbourne to address preventable blindness, including diabetic retinopathy, and cardiovascular disease.
