Enhancing Preventative Healthcare for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People Collaborative

Woonona Medical Practice has recently been involved in a project delivered by the Improvement Foundation in collaboration with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO). The project aims to implement the National guide to a preventative health assessment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and support culturally responsive health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. By taking part in the project, we are have reviewed our systems and services and made important changes to help identify Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people attending our practice, improve the quality of care and follow up care using a whole team approach.
