Leading Indigenous Health Outcomes Through Community Engagement



This free event will bring together a panel of experts from government, community organisations and academia who will debate the role of community control and discuss what lies ahead.

While community control began as a response to a lack of affordable and culturally safe health care options in the mainstream system, it has now developed in to a first choice provider for many Indigenous people. However, with fast growing urban populations, changes in government policy and funding can these community control organisations remain viable? When competing with the mainstream, community control health services (CCHS) often fall short with higher caseloads, more resources required and managing problems of greater complexity than is often found in mainstream general practice. A sustainable approach for the CCHS sector is needed to address the tensions that are created through policy and funding models to facilitate outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander wellbeing and health.

This event is presented by University of Queensland Poche Centre for Indigenous Health Network.
