Managing two worlds together : Study 4 - Complex country Aboriginal patient journeys

This report presents four case studies that map the patient journeys of country Aboriginal patients and carers who travelled from rural or remote South Australia to Adelaide for hospital care. It analyses the common elements in these journeys and their implications for health care providers. This study is part of the 'Managing Two Worlds Together' project, and its goal is to illustrate the complexities involved in these real patient journeys, and how city and country health services prepare for and respond to these complexities.
