The Indigenous Cardiac Outreach Program (ICOP) service provides cardiac outreach services providing care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in rural and remote communities in Queensland. We aim to raise awareness of cardiac diseases through community engagement, education, partnerships with local health providers, training, and research.
We provide a culturally safe specialist cardiac outreach service which includes:
- point-of-care chronic cardiac disease management
- referrals to other health providers
To access the service, please visit your local health worker to make an appointment with the ICOP team. You can see your local doctor to request a referral to the ICOP Program. If you can’t make it on the day, please let your local health worker know and rebook for the next clinic.
You need to remember to bring the following with you to your appointment:
- Your Medicare card
- Health Care Card and/or concession card (if you have one)
- Current medications (prescription, over the counter and herbal medicine)
- Relevant x-rays, scans or any other test results or reports
- Glasses, hearing, and mobility aids
