Home-based, Outreach case Management of chronic disease Exploratory (HOME) Study

Members

Despite the high burden of chronic disease (CD) among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, few intervention trials have sought to implement and evaluate novel approaches to reducing this disparity. Patient-centred, home-based, outreach models of CD management that are informed by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander conceptualisation of health have the potential to improve the biomedical and psychosocial health status for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with CD. Therefore, we developed and implemented such a programme: The Home-based, Outreach case Management of chronic disease Exploratory (HOME) Study (2012-14) developed and implemented a home-based, case management model of patient-centred multidisciplinary care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with complex CD in an urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health care service. This exploratory study evaluated the model of care’s feasibility, acceptability and appropriateness to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with CD and their primary health care service.
