Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health

Integrated Team Care is provided by teams of Indigenous Health Project Officers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Outreach Workers and Care Coordinators. The teams work in the Brisbane South PHN region, across both mainstream and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary healthcare sectors, to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to:

  • obtain primary health care as required
  • provide care coordination services to eligible Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with chronic condition/s who require coordinated, multidisciplinary care
  • improve access for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to culturally appropriate mainstream primary healthcare.

A more comprehensive summary of the Integrated Team Care program is featured on the IUIH website (scroll down to Integrated Team Care).
