Diabetes, kidney disease and heart disease (all chronic diseases) are among the most serious health problems facing Aboriginal people today. The point-of-care program has a broad chronic disease focus that (a) looks for early signs of diabetes, kidney disease and heart disease collectively and (b) provides follow-up management for people identified as being at risk for chronic disease.
