We aim to raise awareness of respiratory diseases through community engagement, lung health promotion, education, partnerships with local health providers, training and research. We provide a culturally safe specialist respiratory outreach service which includes:
- lung health checks
- point-of-care chronic lung disease management
- referrals to other health providers
The IROC team is made up of respiratory physicians, respiratory nurses, respiratory scientists and Indigenous Project Officers from across the state.
We are a specialised respiratory outreach service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in rural and remote communities in Queensland.
The Indigenous Respiratory Outreach Care (IROC) is a Queensland Health Statewide Respiratory Clinical Network initiative hosted by The Prince Charles Hospital, Metro North Hospital and Health Service. The program is funded under the National Partnership Agreement on Closing the Gap in Indigenous Health Outcomes.
