Targeting at-risk clients in metropolitan Aboriginal community controlled health service: Model development and evaluation plan

An integrated and comprehensive model of care targeting at-risk clients in metropolitan Aboriginal community controlled health service: Model development and evaluation plan

This project aimed to evaluate service delivery to clients at risk of contracting blood borne viral infections and to build a sustainable, integrated and comprehensive service including new pathways of care for this group.

The Lowitja Institute supported the second stage of this larger project. Stages 1 and 3 were undertaken with support from the REACCH collaboration and Nunkuwarrin Yunti:

  1. Preparation and initial service evaluation
  2. Consultation and development of model of care and evaluation methodology
  3. Implementation and evaluation of model of care.

The overall project is a cooperative effort between Nunkuwarrin Yunti of South Australia Inc. (an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service located in Adelaide) the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) and researchers at the Kirby Institute, The University of New South Wales (UNSW). These organisations are partners in the Research Excellence in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health (REACCH), an NHMRC funded collaboration, which aims to develop Aboriginal-led research projects and research capacity in the community controlled health sector.

Achievements of the consultation and development of model of care and evaluation methodology component of the project (Stage 2) include:
