Nurse-led and Aboriginal health worker supported model for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea diagnosis and management in remote Queensland

Indicative Funding
$50,000 over 2 years
This project involves trial and evaluation of nurse-led, and Aboriginal health workers (AHWs) supported, integrated model for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) diagnosis and management in Mount Isa. After appropriate training and upskilling, nurses and AHWs will offer diagnosis and management of OSA. Patients with moderate-severe OSA will be managed locally, while atypical/complex patients will be referred to specialists. Validated questionnaires and objective measures will be used to assess treatment effectiveness, waiting time reduction, treatment adherence and feasibility and acceptability of the model. Stakeholder interviews will help in identifying opportunities for improvement and strategies for sustaining and systematising the model over time.
