Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Organiation Management Capability
For this project, the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health (IUIH) will integrate NDIS access, coordination, and service provision with its primary health care model by building on trusted and established culturally safe Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) relationships to ensure seamless navigation through the health, aged and disability care systems.
An Integrated Service Model
IUIH has developed a comprehensive System of Care; a regionally integrated model of expanded comprehensive community, aged and primary health care services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the South East Queensland region.
IUIH integrates NDIS access, coordination and service provision with primary health care by building on trusted and already established culturally safe ACCHS relationships.
This project helps to overcome system navigation challenges and workforce requirements of the NDIS which are new to IUIH. Three initiatives will support and upskill the leadership development of staff working in key integration roles that support and meet the needs of NDIS participants within IUIH’s System of Care:
- Six-month emerging-leaders program – focussing on leadership and mentoring, communication skills, emotional intelligence, and self-reflection.
- Twelve-week Care Coordination/ Case Management Program – to support key personnel to transition and operate effectively in NDIS within the IUIH’s System of Care.
- Upskilling workers in Cert IV Training and Assessing Skill Set to help train and equip others.
