About Refugee Health Nurse Outreach Program
Cultural barriers may stand in the way of newcomers to Australia receiving the health care they need. Medical professionals who understand and address the challenges involved can significantly improve patient outcomes and build stronger communities.
Funded by Darling Downs and West Moreton Primary Health Network, our Refugee Health Nurse Outreach Program provides refugees and migrants in the Ipswich region with support in accessing and navigating health services. The service aims to improve health literacy and reduce barriers to ongoing health care, with major benefits for participants.
