Aboriginal Chronic Care Unit - Nowra
The Aboriginal Chronic Care Unit (ACCU) is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander chronic disease management service within the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District.
The ACCU aims to improve access to health services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living with chronic disease. This is achieved through close partnerships with internal and external service providers and clinicians to develop strong referral networks and health management pathways. The ACCU works to develop the skills of Aboriginal Health Workers (AHW) and Aboriginal Health Practitioners (AHP) to meet the needs of the Aboriginal community.
