Abstract
This article documents experiences working in the field of Aboriginal health. The principle focus of the work is the application of Point-of-Care (POC) technology for the early detection and management of chronic diseases in the Aboriginal community setting. Apart from the well acknowledged advantages of using POC technology such as portability and small sample size, there are other advantages specific, and directly applicable, to the Aboriginal health care setting.
