Taking Care of Business: Corporate Services for Indigenous Primary Health Care Services - Overview Report

Member Support

The Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health (CRCAH), (now known as the Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health), in collaboration with people from the Aboriginal health sector, identified corporate support systems as an area requiring more research to inform ongoing development; hence, the Support Systems for Indigenous Primary Health Care Services Project (hereafter, the Support Systems Project) was conceived.

The Support Systems Project focused on corporate support for Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHSs). The aim of the project was to contribute to improving the viability and sustainability of ACCHSs as corporate entities through developing knowledge about:

  • The range of corporate functions for which ACCHSs might require external support
  • The factors that influence the support required
  • The support structures that currently exist
  • The lessons that can be learned from existing models
  • Ideas about what needs to be done in the future.
