Care coordinators are nurses or Aboriginal health practitioners who assist clients who have complex or chronic health conditions.

Care coordinators assist clients by monitoring and coordinating care and treatment plans with other service providers and specialists.

Care coordinators are located at each town clinic and do outreach with the Social & Emotional Wellbeing (SEWB) team.
