The aim of the Care Coordination program is to provide better access to coordinated and multidisciplinary care to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have chronic diseases.

Services of the program include:

  • Provision of appropriate clinical care
  • Arranging services
  • Assisting patients to attend appointments
  • Ensuring medical records are complete and current
