A collaboration between Torres Strait Islander Consultancy and Doctor To You was agreed on Monday at a meeting hosted by the amazing and inspiring advocate Mr Harry Pitt.
We will soon be calling for Expressions of Interest for participation in a pilot program that will see a number of Medical, Social, Mental and Allied Health Professionals collaborate together to work with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities to provide better health outcomes.
Our focus territories will include Deception Bay / Redcliffe, Caboolture, Sunshine Coast and Gympie. Cultural awareness for these communities will be at the forefront of all elements of deliverable that this pilot program will aim to deliver.
A strong focus on chronic disease management and mental health that relies on the premise that early intervention and prevention is better than cure. Seasonal healthcare will play a big part in the research analysis.
We are looking also for interested Clinics and funding providers to assist with the roll-out of the pilot which will be for 6 months. Contact is being made with the University of Queensland Population Health and we have already secured an additional partner in @Tony Keating #ResApp Health.
All interested parties, please contact
