What is an Interprofessional Team?

An interprofessional team means that your health professionals work together to discuss and understand your health care needs. This approach allows you as the patient to tell your story once and, together, the team of health professionals will work to develop your treatment plan, allowing improved service and quality of care.

James Cook University (JCU) provides high quality Interprofessional services for individuals with conditions that may require several different professionals. A nurse will discuss your service needs in an initial assessment and prepare a care plan that allows the patient to see multiple clinicians at the same time. Services in this program include Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Psychology Exercise Physiology and Physiotherapy.

We accept self-referrals as well as health and educational professionals. The cost of our service is $30 for assessments and ongoing treatments.
