What is Integrated Team Care?

Integrated Team Care (ITC) is a program that supports you to better manage your Chronic condition.

Am I eligible for ITC?

  • If you identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.
  • If you have one or more diagnosed Chronic conditions.
  • Your doctor has done a GP Management Plan (GPMP).

What is a GP Management Plan?

A GPMP is completed for people with Chronic health conditions who require team-based care from a GP and other health or care providers. Moorditj Koorts ITC team work with you and your GP to access different services identified in your GPMP.

What are the benefits of ITC?
