While a broad range of specialised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander focused services would be ideal, this is not always possible. This workshop report engages the questions:

  • What are the necessary components of a good service delivery model for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people?
  • What are the barriers and enablers to delivering integrated care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people?
  • What does a vision for integrated care in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ageing space look like and how will we get there?

By looking across a range of service areas including aged care, disability, health, housing, there may be opportunity to meet this need more creatively however this would require greater flexibility around funding for different service models by various governments.

This event will seek to:

  • Identify the insights gained from the 2019 Pre-Conference Workshop Report
  • Consider the diverse and often complex needs of older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • Understand the importance of working across different services and bringing in numerous agencies in a culturally sensitive manner
  • Learn the essential components of a good service delivery model for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
