Centre of Research Excellence in Indigenous Primary Health Care Intervention in Chronic Disease (Kanyini Vascular Collaboration)
The Centre of Research Excellence in Indigenous Primary Health Care Intervention in Chronic Disease, also known as the Kanyini Vascular Collaboration (KVC), aims to reform the health system to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with chronic disease.
KVC aims to:
- improve health outcomes in Indigenous people with or at risk of diabetes, heart and kidney diseases
- explore and understand health system enablers and barriers to care
- develop, implement and evaluate strategies to improve access, quality and safety of care
- build the capacity of community and services in conducting high-quality primary care research.
KVC represents a network of leading Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal researchers, Aboriginal medical services, community members and policy stakeholders from across Australia.
The Centre of Excellence builds on the KVC with the following key objectives:
- improve the quality of care, the quality of life and outcomes of chronic disease
- examine the impact, utility and effectiveness of the Federal Governments Closing the gap chronic disease package elements within partner primary care services, with a view to maximising benefit for patients and informing policy development
- develop a cadre of Indigenous primary care researchers with the skills and support to contribute to their communities needs in chronic disease into the future.
