Karadi are pleased to announce that we have been funded to provide chronic disease case care coordination in the Northern Suburbs, particularly the 7030 area. This includes Bridgewater, Gagebrook, Brighton, Mangalore, Bagdad and surrounds.
Care coordinators provide intensive one-to-one support for Aboriginal people who have been diagnosed with a chronic condition or disease.
GP referral is required to access this free service. We can organise this for you if you haven't yet been referred.
The care coordination program aims to improve health by working with all primary health care providers involved in care of the patient to ensure patients are accessing services consistent with the care recommended by their GP.
Care coordinators provide culturally sensitive care, advocate on behalf of Aboriginal patients and have a good understanding of the local health system. They also assist patients to attend appointments and coordinate health care, liaise with all providers involved in the care of the patient, provide links to other community services that may be of benefit and help the patient to develop self-management skills.
Care coordinators have access to a flexible pool of funding that can provide financial assistance to ensure important follow-up care is continued or that specialist appointments, diagnostic tests or allied health appointments are accessed where these services are not otherwise available in a clinically acceptable timeframe. These ‘supplementary services’ funds can also be used by care coordinators to acquire some medical aids.
For more information please call contact our Aboriginal Health workers Dewayne or Emma on 6272 3511.
