Wurli established this separate chronic disease clinic to provide a culturally appropriate and supportive service and education with an emphasis on self-management of chronic disease conditions. Coordination of the different services required by individual patients is a big feature of Gudbinji’s work and client care is not limited to clinical care or referral to allied health care. More time is used to provide client case management, education, support and advocacy to ensure a holistic approach to chronic disease management.
The Program places very strong emphasis on developing preventative strategies revolving around healthy eating and exercise promotion and education.
