Chronic Disease Management

At RivMed, we ensure that our most vulnerable community members are supported. Chronic illnesses are ongoing and persistent conditions such as respiratory diseases (including asthma), heart and circulatory diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and kidney diseases. These conditions are common amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who are more susceptible to these illnesses, compared to non-Indigenous peoples.

Preventative measures can deter chronic conditions. However, the underlying risk factors make prevention and intervention complex. Through our comprehensive Model of Care, RivMed is committed to providing tailored support to our patients around prevention, intervention, and management of chronic illnesses.
