ICDC is our Kalgoorlie-based chronic health care program, funded by WAPHA.
The ICDC program seeks to improve self-management for those individuals living with a chronic condition by providing access to allied health professionals in the central and northern Goldfields, and to help them access any other services they might need.
The Care Coordinator will see you initially to gather your medical history, and any other information that is relevant to your health and wellbeing. They will also discuss your health goals set by your doctor and yourself. This goal-setting is a crucial part of the ICDC program, ensuring that our healthcare matches our clients’ personal wants and needs.
