Torres and Cape to launch dental telehealth team in Torres Strait

The Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service is set to launch a new dental health project in the Torres Strait as part of a $1.46 million grant for the region from the Queensland government's $35 million Integrated Care Innovation Fund (ICIF).

Torres and Cape HHS is working with the Northern Queensland Primary Health Network (PHN) on the primary oral health care project, which will see the introduction of intra-oral cameras and the use of existing video consulting technology to allow primary health workers to consult with dental staff at the main clinic on Thursday Island.
