Coordinated Veterans’ Care Program

The Coordinated Veterans’ Care (CVC) Program is a coordinated care program initiated by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. It provides high quality coordinated care to DVA Gold Card holders with chronic and complex health conditions to help them better manage their health and avoid unnecessary hospital admissions. 

The CVC Program aims to improve the health of participants by:

•  providing ongoing planned and coordinated care from a GP and a nurse
•  educating and empowering participants to self-manage their conditions
•  encouraging the most socially isolated to participate in community activities.

FHBHRU is one of the partner organisations responsible for the development and management of the training and education modules to support the CVC Program.

CVC Program training and education 

Training and education to support the CVC Program is designed for general practitioners, practice nurses, community nurses and Aboriginal health practitioners who will be leading and providing care coordination for CVC participants.

Note: All four Modules are accredited with relevant professional organisations. Each Module will be accredited 40 Category 1 Points, as part of the RACGP QI@CPD Program in the 2014 -2016 triennium. Activity numbers pending.
