Demographic characteristics and primary health care utilization patterns of strictly orthodox Jewish and non-Jewish patients. (1/236)

BACKGROUND: The importance of providing health care services that are acceptable to different cultural groups is widely acknowledged. Strictly orthodox Jewish communities have particular health care needs that reflect their religious teaching and beliefs. OBJECTIVE: To describe the demographic characteristics and health care usage patterns of the strictly orthodox Jewish population of Gateshead. METHODS: Registration and claims data were used in combination with encounter data from computerized and manual practice records. Jewish patients were identified and comparisons made between Jewish and non-Jewish populations registered at the same practices. RESULTS: The orthodox Jewish population was predominantly young (69% aged under 20). The birth rate in orthodox Jewish women aged 20-44 was much higher (294 per 1000) than non-Jewish women. Rates of uptake of cervical screening and childhood immunizations were significantly lower in the orthodox Jewish population. Uptake of breast screening and attendance at diabetic clinics did not differ significantly. The average number of consultations and home visits per annum was higher in Jewish than in non-Jewish patients. CONCLUSIONS: The demographic and health care utilization patterns of orthodox Jewish and non-Jewish patients in Gateshead are different. There are implications for the provision of primary care services, particularly with regard to preventative health care.  (+info)

Does reported health promotion activity neglect people with ill-health? (2/236)

Considering health as an alternative to ill-health ignores the multidimensionality of both concepts and invites neglect of health promotion as a multidimensional activity in persons with known ill-health. Drawing on the Ottawa Charter and Maori perspectives of health, we interpret (ill) health according to people's ability to function in their environment by developing physical, psychological, social and spiritual resources for living. We use this framework to test empirically our hypothesis that although the concept of health promotion has always included people with ill-health, the practice of health promotion has continued to neglect them. Our exploratory review of articles published during 1989-99 and indexed on three electronic databases suggests widespread omission of people with ill-health from research on interventions for health promotion. Of 881 citations, approximately three-quarters included people without ill-health in any dimension. This finding could reflect a failure to include these people in health promotion, to describe activity to improve their health as health promotion, or both. Supporting the latter interpretation is uncertainty over the meaning of health, and the targeting of health promotion at groups at high risk of ill-health and 'all' persons. We need therefore to enable health promotion activity to include ill people explicitly.  (+info)

Outreach and improved access to specialist services for indigenous people in remote Australia: the requirements for sustainability. (6/236)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To examine the role of specialist outreach in supporting primary health care and overcoming the barriers to health care faced by the indigenous population in remote areas of Australia, and to examine issues affecting its sustainability. DESIGN: A process evaluation of a specialist outreach service, using health service utilisation data and interviews with health professionals and patients. SETTING: The Top End of Australia's Northern Territory, where Darwin is the capital city and the major base for hospital and specialist services. In the rural and remote areas outside Darwin there are many small, predominantly indigenous communities, which are greatly disadvantaged by a severe burden of disease and limited access to medical care. PARTICIPANTS: Seventeen remote health practitioners, five specialists undertaking outreach, five regional health administrators, and three patients from remote communities. MAIN RESULTS: The barriers faced by many remote indigenous people in accessing specialist and hospital care are substantial. Outreach delivery of specialist services has overcome some of the barriers relating to distance, communication, and cultural inappropriateness of services and has enabled an over fourfold increase in the number of consultations with people from remote communities. Key issues affecting sustainability include: an adequate specialist base; an unmet demand from primary care; integration with, accountability to and capacity building for a multidisciplinary framework centred in primary care; good communication; visits that are regular and predictable; funding and coordination that recognises responsibilities to both hospitals and the primary care sector; and regular evaluation. CONCLUSIONS: In a setting where there is a disadvantaged population with inadequate access to medical care, specialist outreach from a regional centre can provide a more equitable means of service delivery than hospital based services alone. A sustainable outreach service that is organised appropriately, responsive to local community needs, and has an adequate regional specialist base can effectively integrate with and support primary health care processes. Poorly planned and conducted outreach, however, can draw resources away and detract from primary health care.  (+info)

Improving the health of future generations: the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Institute of Aboriginal Peoples' Health. (7/236)

In the past and in the present, research studies and media reports have focused on pathology and dysfunction in aboriginal communities and have often failed to present a true and complete picture of the aboriginal experience.

This initiative aims to improve aboriginal health information, develop research capacity, better translate research into practice, and inform public health policy with the goal of improving the health of indigenous peoples.  (+info)

Perspectives on American Indian health. (8/236)

American Indians and Alaska Natives continue to experience significant disparities in health status compared with the US general population and now are facing the new challenges of rising rates of chronic diseases. The Indian health system continues to try to meet the federal trust responsibility to provide health care for American Indians and Alaska Natives despite significant shortfalls in funding, resources, and staff. New approaches to these Indian health challenges, including a greater focus on public health, community-based interventions, and tribal management of health programs, provide hope that the health of Indian communities will improve in the near future.  (+info)

Care should be taken when interpreting results in this publication. Like in other nutrition surveys, there has been some under-reporting of food intake by participants in this survey. Given the association of under-reporting with overweight/obesity and consciousness of socially acceptable/desirable dietary patterns, under-reporting is unlikely to affect all foods and nutrients equally. As a result, no adjustment to the estimates has been applied and the results within this publication will be affected by under-reporting to differing degrees. See Appendix 1 for an overview of the major food groups and the Glossary for other definitions ...
In recognition of the growing number of pharmacists working in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs), the peak national body for pharmacists, the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) has launched the ACCHO Special Interest Group (SIG). The ACCHO SIG was launched on Sunday 30 July at PSA17 in Sydney during the Aboriginal Health Service Pharmacist forum. PSA National President Dr Shane Jackson said pharmacists working in ACCHOs have specific needs and skills and having a Special Interest Group with the primary role of supporting them will assist PSA to drive the growth of this career path.. In many cases pharmacists working in these positions are providing innovative and diverse services that have the potential to be informative and relevant to the evolution of pharmacy services and inter-professional care.. Consultation with these pharmacists and services about their needs is vital to ensure PSA and the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation ...

Despite the increasingly prevalent role of genetics in health research, driven by advances in genomic technologies, we see little integration of genetic research and genetic services into Indigenous health in Australia. This lags significantly behind other developed nations such as the United States and Canada who have utilised genomic information and research in driving Indigenous health policy.7. Until recently, collection of biobank samples and subsequent genetic research has not been an area of focus in Indigenous health, highlighted by the lack of relevant publications in this field. Even now it generates a level of apprehension in Indigenous communities founded not only in the exploitive nature of our colonial past but uncertainties over data sharing and ownership rights.8,9. Early population‐based studies such as the Human Genome Diversity Project in the 1990s aimed to explore genetic diversity of the human species by sequencing Indigenous populations.10 Labelled the vampire project ...
In recent years, health promotion has come under critique for being framed according to the contexts and priorities of Western communities, with the notion of control underpinning much of its theoretical and practical development. Ceding space to Indigenous voices and knowledge is one way forward to overcoming this limitation and decolonizing the field. This paper reports on insights gained from a participatory digital storytelling project focused on Indigenous health promotion that took place at MWikwedong Indigenous Friendship Centre in the city of Owen Sound, Canada. The research team was formed by MWikwedongs Executive Director, five Indigenous youth and two university researchers. We co-created data through an 8-month digital storytelling process that involved 13 weekly research meetings, the creation of 4 digital stories and video screenings. We analysed data from seven group interview transcriptions, field notes and video transcripts through qualitative coding and theme building. The ...
All health professionals require an understanding of different cultures to be able to work effectively and safely with their patients and other team members. In 2011 Bond University renewed its undergraduate medical program to include significant cultural awareness and Indigenous health education, as a result of community need and Australian Medical Council recommendations. In 2012 Bond established a diverse multidisciplinary Indigenous Health Group (n=9) to develop and implement its Indigenous curriculum. Part of this program is a two day cultural immersion early in the first year to increase the students understanding of other cultures, particularly Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. This program has been conducted for the past four years and in 2015 won three awards including the prestigious Australian Award for University Teaching citation for outstanding contributions to student learning.This paper will present an overview of what we do in the cultural immersion; the
Across the country, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Health Practitioners have vital and unmatched primary health care roles at the front line of rural and remote health care.
Aboriginal health means not just the physical well-being of an individual but refers to the social, emotional and cultural well-being of the whole Community in which each individual is able to achieve their full potential as a human being, thereby bringing about the total well-being of their Community. It is a whole-of-life view and includes the cyclical concept of life-death-life. ...

If Australia wants to close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous health, treating disease will not do it, Sir Michael Marmot says in his second ABC Boyer Lecture.
INTRODUCTION:Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and its complications are more common among Māori and Pacific people compared with other ethnic groups in New Zealand. Comprehensive and sustained approaches that address social determinants of health are required to address this condition, including culturally specific interventions. Currently, New Zealand has no comprehensive T2DM management programme for Māori or Pacific people. METHODS AND ANALYSIS:The Mana Tū programme was developed by a Māori-led collaborative of primary healthcare workers and researchers, and codesigned with whānau (patients and their families) in order to address this gap. The programme is based in primary care and has three major components: a Network hub, Kai Manaaki (skilled case managers who work with whānau with poorly controlled diabetes) and a cross-sector network of services to whom whānau can be referred to address the wider determinants of health. The Network hub supports the delivery of the intervention ...
Hepatitis B immunisation:. Students must provide evidence of being immune to Hepatitis B within the first teaching period of their studies. A blood-borne viral disease may result in a students inability to obtain a placement in a Queensland Health facility and consequently may result in their inability to complete the requirements of the course as accredited by the relevant professional accrediting body. If a student has not complied with the above requirement by the last day of the first teaching period of their studies, their enrolment will be terminated immediately.. Suitability to Work with Children Card (blue card):. This course includes prescribed professional or clinical placements that may involve contact with children under 18 years of age.

The Overview of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health status 2015 provides a comprehensive summary of the most recent indicators of the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Overview shows that the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continues to improve slowly and that there have been declines in infant mortality rates and an increase in life expectancy. There have also been improvements in a number of areas contributing to health status such as increased immunisation coverage and a slight decrease in the prevalence of tobacco use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.. The Overview, which draws on the most up-to-date, authoritative sources and undertakes some special analyses, is freely available on the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet web resource, along with downloadable PowerPoint presentations of key facts, tables and figures.

It identifies areas of success and improvement, and areas that need further attention.
The gap in life expectancy between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians is widening, not closing.. States currently spend $2 per Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander for every $1 for the rest of the population whereas the Commonwealth in the past has spent only $1.21 per Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island person for every $1 spent on the rest of the population. NACCHO calls for the Commonwealth to increase funding to Close the Gap.. The originating Close the Gap Statement of Intent - between the Government of Australia and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, supported by non-Indigenous Australians and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous health organisations - was never truly adopted and the Close the Gap strategy has only been partially implemented.. Underfunding in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services and infrastructure has persisted. Funding is not based on need and service gaps, has been cut and in ...
The annual Overview is free to download and provides scholarly, up-to-date, detailed information about the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It highlights improvements to certain aspects of Indigenous health, and outlines where ongoing work is needed to close the gap in health status between Indigenous and other Australians.
The importance of leadership and participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, including children and young people, in policy development, system monitoring, service design, program evaluation and at the level of individual cases has been emphasised repeatedly (Cummins, Scott, & Scales, 2012; McGuinness & Leckning, 2013; Northern Territory Government, 2010; SNAICC, 2013; United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, 2012). This has included calls for the expansion in the roles of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander agencies in child protection matters, oversight by Aboriginal Childrens Commissioners and community involvement in determining priorities for local action and family decision-making approaches that emphasise family involvement in decision-making. Combining decision-making authority for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander agencies and individuals with the delivery of culturally based programs (e.g., Indigenous parenting programs), identification and ...

Indigenous Australians are receiving up to two and a half times more health funding than non-indigenous Australians and they are six times more likely to be hospitalised for kidney disease and childhood preventable diseases, a new report shows.. On average, for every $1 spent per person on non-indigenous healthcare $1.39 was spent on indigenous health in 2008-09, an Australian Institute of Health and Welfare report released today shows.. But in remote and very remote areas, health spending per person was as high as $2.41 on indigenous Australians for every $1 spent on indigenous Australians.. The statistics reflect the poor health of indigenous Australians and the fact they are likely to die 11.5 years earlier than other Australians.. Kidney disease and mental and behavioural disorders top the spending list for indigenous Australians while cardiovascular disease and unintentional injuries were the most costly areas of expenditure for non-indigenous Australians.. Indigenous Australians received ...
Objective: To evaluate the contribution of non-traditional risk factors to coronary heart disease (CHD) incidence in Indigenous adults.. Design, setting and participants: Cohort study of 1706 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults from 26 remote communities in far north Queensland who were initially free of CHD, with a mean of 7.5 years of follow-up.. Main outcome measures: CHD-related deaths and hospitalisations obtained by record matching.. Results: CHD incidence was similar in men and women and in Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders; overall incidence was 12.1 (95% CI, 10.1-14.1) events per 1000 person-ears. At baseline, prevalence of diabetes was 12.4% in Aboriginals and 22.3% in Torres Strait Islanders, prevalence of any albuminuria was similarly high (33.5%) in both groups, and participants with diabetes were 5.5 (95% CI, 4.2-7.3) times more likely to have albuminuria than those without diabetes. At follow-up, adjusted hazard ratios for CHD were 1.7 (95% CI, 1.01-2.8) for obesity ...

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the first people of Australia. Consequences of historic and contemporary settler-colonialism including racism, trauma, grief and loss (of land, culture, spirituality, and freedoms) have led to substantial negative health and wellbeing impacts. The Kessler Psychological Distress Scales are population and individual-level tools designed to measure general psychological health status. There has been limited assessment of the psychometric properties and validity of the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale for use with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population in Australia, despite its widespread use. A national sample of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults (n = 6988 ≥ 16 years) was used in the psychometric assessment of the MK-K5, which involved face validity, acceptability, internal consistency/reliability, construct validity, and convergent and divergent validity testing. Receiver Operator Characteristics (ROC) curves were produced to
Important updates have been made to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) relating to recording Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (hereafter respectfully referred to as Indigenous) status, catch-up schedule information and amended pneumococcal rules..

The National Immunisation Program (NIP) for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people provides additional vaccines to help improve the health of Indigenous people, and close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in health and life expectancy.. To identify Indigenous people who may require additional vaccines, vaccination providers can now record Indigenous status directly on AIR and it will not be over-ridden by their status recorded by Medicare. AIR Indigenous status will not be recorded on any other government database and it does not need to be the same as Medicare.. Recording an ...
Australias health 2014 was released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare as the fourtenth edition of its biennial national health report. The report shows that Australia is one of the healthiest nations in the world, with most Australians generally have good health and access to a range of good health care services, but Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples continue to have much poorer health than the general population.. Health information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is included in various sections of the report but particularly in chapter 7 which compiles information about demographic profiles, health status, disability rates and service use. The section highlights that Indigenous Australians are continuing to die at much younger ages than non-Indigenous Australians. Indigenous Australians also continue to have a greater disease burden, higher rates of disability and a lower quality of life than other Australians. The section concludes with ...
Physical inactivity during childhood is associated with the development of chronic disease, including overweight and obesity,1,2 and type 2 diabetes.3 In Australia, about 75% of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people over 15 years old are considered inactive,4 57% are overweight or obese5 and the rate of diabetes is at least three times that of non-Indigenous Australians.5 Improving the health of Australias Indigenous peoples is a national priority and efforts to increase physical activity levels have the potential to reduce the burden of illness associated with physical inactivity.. National and international physical activity guidelines recommend that children aged 5-18 years spend at least 60 minutes every day in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA).6-9 Studies indicate that most children meet this recommendation, but compliance is associated with the childs age and gender, with a decline commencing in adolescence, and boys typically being more active than girls.1,10-12 Data ...

Closing the health and care gaps between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (Indigenous) Australians and non‐Indigenous Australians has been a longstanding challenge.1,2 In 2018, a decade after Australian governments committed themselves to Closing the Gap, mortality and life expectancy for Indigenous Australians had not markedly improved, and nearly 80% of the difference in mortality between adult Indigenous and non‐Indigenous Australians was attributable to chronic disease.3. The Practice Incentives Program-Indigenous Health Incentive (PIP‐IHI), introduced in May 2010, assists general practitioners undertake chronic disease care planning for their Indigenous patients. Initial uptake was poor: only 64% of general practices expected to register (1275 of 2000) did so during 2010-11.4 However, the proportion had increased by May 2012.5 The rebate for health assessments for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People (Medicare Benefits Schedule [MBS] item 715),6 constitutes an additional ...
Background To describe the prevalence, type, and mental health correlates of substance use disorders in a large sample of incarcerated Indigenous Australians.
Our review highlights that studies examining the prevalence of anti-HCV were significantly biased towards studies that included people at high risk of HCV infection. The highest prevalence estimates of anti-HCV were among Aboriginal people who inject drugs. As a result this study represents the prevalence of anti-HCV among Aboriginal people with a high risk of anti-HCV infection instead of the overall anti-HCV prevalence among the general Aboriginal population.. To our knowledge, this is the first systematic review and meta-analysis examining the prevalence of anti-HCV among Aboriginal people in Australia. A number of limitations should be considered when interpreting our results. Firstly, the majority of the studies were among Aboriginal people in prison or Aboriginal people who inject drugs. This significantly increases the risk of our study over-estimating the pooled anti-HCV prevalence among Aboriginal people. Also, among people in prison there is a higher risk of HCV exposure through unsafe ...
