Chronic Disease Network NT

Membership of the Chronic Disease Network

The Chronic Diseases Network (CDN) is a consolidated group of people and organisations with an interest in reducing the rates of chronic diseases and their complications in the NT. The Network was set up in 1997 in response to the rising impact of chronic disease in the Northern Territory (NT) and its existence is a crucial enabling factor for the ongoing implementation of the Chronic Conditions Prevention and Management (CCPMS). The CDN encompasses a wide range of sectors and organisations in the NT and interstate and has in excess of 800 members within Australia.

The aim of the CDN is to support and facilitate amongst its members, an increase in:

  • Communication
  • Coordination
  • Collaboration and
  • Collective Memory
The current members of CDN Steering Committee are:

Some key products are:

  • The Chronicle: A quarterly publication with contributions from members.
  • eCDNewsletter: This is a fortnightly email sent to all members electronically informing them of current issues, upcoming events and new research and reports of interest published by various stakeholders.
  • Annual CDN Conference: The CDN Conference provides opportunities for stakeholders to come together to communicate, collaborate and network, and to promote their services and activities.

Combined Network Meetings:

The CDN, Medicare Local and Cancer Council NT work in partnership to enable local/regionally based service providers to network with each other in accessing multiple services and/or information through a Combined Network Meeting where locally based training and development opportunities are made available.

They are open to anyone who is interested including GPs, Allied Health, Aboriginal Health workers, Nurses Practice Managers, Workers, Chronic Disease staff and Community Workers.
