Dementia telehealth service to roll out to rural Indigenous communities

The University of Queensland’s Centre for Online Health (COH) is set to go live with a new telehealth service providing specialist geriatric care and dementia care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in rural and remote Queensland.

Funded by the federal Department of Health, the project will provide dementia services including screening, treatment, patient support and health promotion by telehealth to six community-controlled Aboriginal Medical Services, delivered by medical specialists from two hub sites at Brisbane's Princess Alexandra Hospital and Cairns Hospital.
