Abstract

Main study objectives are to determine the enablers and barriers for urban Indigenous people to access mainstream primary care services, in particular diabetes chronic care services. This knowledge of critical access and acceptability factors will guide the development of a culturally approirate diabetes care intervention for Indigenous patients. This adpated intervention, to be delivered in mainstream general practices, will be pilot-tested for cultural appropriateness in Indigenous patients.
