Delivery Quality Care

Our clinic and staff follow best practice guidelines and adheres to national clinical quality. This includes best practice in clinical audit, continuing quality improvement, quality patient experience, accessibility and affordability.

Our Models of Care

RivMed’s whole of life care model emphasises nurturing young people, wellness and recovery and end of life care.

Our model place the client family at the centre of care. It outlines the processes and flows of activities, from arrival, through diagnosis, treatment and referral. It includes the key linkages and clinical pathways that might be necessary for clients in assisting them towards the best possible outcomes for whole of life health and wellbeing.

The model of care is underpinned by five pillars to support the culturally safe delivery of primary health care to Aboriginal people and their families, being:

  • Community – a sense of belonging, being part of an extended family which provides connection and social supports
  • Family – generational support and guidance underpinned by respect and recognition within family groups
  • Culture – the tangible and intangible objects which provide song lines and connections to the land which has been nurtured by Aboriginal people for thousands of years
  • Country – recognition of where family groups belong
  • Emotional – the positive and negative influence history and current practices affecting Aboriginal people

We respectfully acknowledge that the lands and waterways on which the Riverina Medical and Dental Aboriginal Corporation operates, and the communities we serve are the traditional lands of the Wiradjuri people. We pay our respects to our elders past and present and we will continue to fulfill our cultural obligations as a First Nations organisation operating on Wiradjuri country.

Always Was. Always Will Be.
