Integrated Team Care

Bwgcolman Healing Services provides an Integrated Team Care (ITC) program to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with chronic conditions to access the health care they need. Common chronic conditions include cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Heart disease and diabetes, two common chronic conditions, are the leading causes of death for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Chronic conditions require complex health care across various types of health services. This program provides support to help patients understand and manage their conditions.

The program aims to help our patients with chronic conditions:

better treat and manage their chronic conditions; and

improve their health

We do this by:

making sure our patients can access the right care when they need it, including specialist and allied health care

ensuring quicker access to health services

Our ITC Coordinator can:

arrange the services in your general practitioner (GP) care plans

organise regular reviews

provide clinical care

speed up access to urgent and essential allied health or specialist services

help you access some GP-approved medical aids

help you better manage and understand their condition.

Your GP can make a referral to the Care Coordinator
