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 ...

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

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 ...

It has been argued that complex health interventions need to be context-dependent to be most effective [12, 23, 40]. Within the context of Indigenous communities in Canada where the barriers encountered to providing optimal chronic care are numerous, sometimes unique and typically more exacerbated compared to their non-Indigenous counterparts, and resources are scarce [23, 40-42] the wisdom held by healthcare providers working in a community with regards to implementation of an intervention should not be underestimated. The concept of readiness has been consistently argued to be a key factor in influencing the success of health interventions [17, 18, 30, 33]. Trickett [43] argues that political, financial, educational, cultural, logistic, anthropological, and emotional barriers can affect even strongly supported interventions within a health system. The Canadian Indigenous context and the healthcare models that exist in First Nations communities became an important underpinning for the ...
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 is an important part of the HealthInfoNets commitment to collaborative knowledge ...

Vaccine preventable diseases and vaccination coverage in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 2006 to 2010 is the third in a series of reports published in Communicable Diseases Intelligence. It provides data on disease notifications, hospitalisations, deaths and childhood vaccinations, comparing rates in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous people. 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 ...
This annual report aims to provide a comprehensive summary of the most recent indicators of the health and current health status of Australias Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Indigenous Australians are a small, widely dispersed population. Regarding childbearing women and infants, inequities in service delivery and culturally unsafe services contribute to significantly poorer outcomes, with a lack of high-level research to guide service redesign. This paper reports on an Evaluation of a specialist (Murri) antenatal clinic for Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. A triangulated mixed method approach generated and analysed data from a range of sources: individual and focus group interviews; surveys; mother and infant audit data; and routinely collected data. A retrospective analysis compared clinical outcomes of women who attended the Murri clinic (n=367) with Indigenous women attending standard care (n=414) provided by the same hospital over the same period. Both services see women of all risk status. The majority of women attending the Murri clinic reported high levels of satisfaction, specifically with continuity of carer antenatally. However,
The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has announced almost $5 million in funding for the prevention and management of chronic lung diseases.. NHMRC participated in a request for research applications from the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD). The GACD is a collaboration of major international public research funding agencies that funds joint research programs to address chronic non-communicable diseases in low- and middle-income countries and in vulnerable populations in high-income countries.. NHMRC CEO Professor Anne Kelso says one aim of NHMRCs participation is to build the evidence base for sound policies on prevention and management of chronic lung diseases in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Two of the projects announced today will support this goal.. Improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is a critical component of NHMRCs research funding strategy, Prof Kelso says.. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ...
Chronic conditions are responsible for the majority of disability and death in Australia [1] causing a significant impact on quality of life of Australians and placing a strain on health and welfare services [2]. Chronic diseases affect Indigenous Australians at a disproportionately higher level than non-indigenous Australians [3]. Chronic disease occurs at earlier ages in Indigenous Australians, accounting for two thirds of the gap in mortality between Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations and contributing to early morbidity [4]. For example, in 2012-2013 Indigenous Australians were more likely to suffer asthma, hearing loss, heart and circulatory related chronic disease, and insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus than non-Indigenous Australians [3]. The greatest discrepancy was in diabetes and chronic kidney disease with Indigenous Australians three times more likely to suffer diabetes and more than seven times as likely to receive treatment for end-stage kidney failure [2]. This ...
REMEMBER: Determining whether a client identifies as an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander is only part of the issue.

As part of the colonisation process, there were many small scale conflicts between colonists and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders across the continent. Since the 1970s there has been more systematic research into this conflict which is described as the Australian frontier wars. In Queensland, the killing of Aboriginal peoples was largely perpetrated by civilian "hunting" parties and the Native Police, armed groups of Aboriginal men who were recruited at gunpoint and led by colonialist to eliminate Aboriginal resistance.[70] There is evidence that massacres of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, which began with arrival of British colonists, continued until the 1930s. Researchers at the University of Newcastle have begun mapping the massacres.[71] So far they have mapped almost 500 places where massacres happened, with 12,361 Aboriginal people killed and 204 Colonists killed.[72]. Estimating the total number of deaths during the frontier wars is difficult due to lack of records ...

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people comprise about 2.5% of the Australian population. Cancer registry data indicate that their breast cancer survivals are lower than for other women but the completeness and accuracy of Indigenous descriptors on registries are uncertain. We followed women receiving mammography screening in BreastScreen to determine differences in screening experiences and survivals from breast cancer by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander status, as recorded by BreastScreen. This status is self-reported and used in BreastScreen accreditation, and is considered to be more accurate. The study included breast cancers diagnosed during the period of screening and after leaving the screening program. Design: Least square regression models were used to compare screening experiences and outcomes adjusted for age, geographic remoteness, socio-economic disadvantage, screening period and round during 1996-2005. Survival of breast cancer patients from all causes and from breast ...

1. Introduction. Indigenous Australian1 people continue to experience a disproportionately high burden of chronic disease compared to other Australians [1] . Chronic disease and related factors account for 70% of the health gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians [2] . Indigenous young people experience an excess burden of preventable and treatable disease such as ear disease, poor oral health and recurrent infections [3] and have high rates of risk factors for the development of chronic diseases in adulthood [4] . Data shows that the onset of chronic disease is likely to occur at a much younger age among Indigenous Australians than non-Indigenous Australians [5] . These chronic diseases have common risk factors including smoking, poor nutrition, alcohol misuse, inadequate physical activity and overweight and obesity [6] . Economic and social determinants of poor Indigenous health further contribute to the high burden of chronic disease in the Indigenous Australian population [7] ...
The State of Alaska Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic was assumed by Southcentral Foundation in October 2016. While the staffing of the clinic stays continuous, there have been improvements which include an increased number of clinics, additional hours for clinics, and more comprehensive evaluations that allow providers to get to know each child individually.. A new website was developed and contains information not only on the condition, but also specific pages geared toward parents and providers, along with a team bio page. In the future, the dental department hopes to provide additional resources for out-of-town guests to help make travel easier.. The clinic is open to all Alaska residents, and the team is composed of members from SCF, ANTHC, and the community.

Driver licencing is an important part of life for many Australian, especially those who live in outer urban areas or regional and remote parts of the country where public transport is not accessible. With increasingly difficult graduated licensing systems for new drivers, aimed at keeping young drivers safe, there can be substantial barriers to licensing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. However, little is understood about the population rates of driver licencing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait people, or the barriers to licencing. This lack of data inhibits development of appropriate programs. If developed in consultation with communities and with appropriate safeguards in place, including reliable measures of Indigenous status into licensing databases would contribute significantly to creation of a reliable data source to inform program development and guide evaluation.
www.ATSIHIV.org.au is the go-to resource on HIV for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and community health services across Australia.
develop practice guidelines on identification and provide training support for staff. Project leader, Associate Professor Margaret Kelaher from the University of Melbourne, said supporting voluntary self-identification would help improve Indigenous peoples quality of care. "Identification processes require the development of culturally appropriate approaches and general practices need to provide culturally safe opportunities for people to identify," she said. "Helping practice staff and the community to understand the link between identification and quality of care is a critical part of this process." APHCRI Director Robert Wells said the study was an "important first step" towards providing better health care for Indigenous people that could assist the prevention of chronic disease. The report, Improving the Identification of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People in Mainstream General Practice is available from the APHCRI website and The Lowitja Institute website. For interviews: ...
Cardiovascular diseases are estimated to affect 5.2% of Australians [18], 12% of Indigenous Australians [19] and have been estimated to be responsible for approximately a quarter of the gap in health outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians [4, 20]. CVD hospitalisations and death rates in remote and very remote areas of Australia are estimated to be 30% higher than in major cities [21]. Ensuring that Indigenous and remote communities experiencing or at risk of CVD can access appropriate care is vital to closing this gap. This study provides a unique insight into the service use patterns of this high-risk cohort. Average MBS expenditure was lower per capita for Indigenous Australians relative to other participants, in line with national estimates [8]. Most of this difference, however, resulted from remote Indigenous participants receiving significantly lower levels of Medicare-funded care. While this finding is consistent with previous literature highlighting service-gaps and ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Estimating cancer incidence in Indigenous Australians. AU - Zhang, Xiaohua. AU - Condon, John. AU - Rumbold, Alice. AU - Cunningham, Joan. AU - Roder, David. PY - 2011. Y1 - 2011. N2 - Objective: To assess data quality of cancer registrations for Indigenous Australians and produce reliable national Indigenous cancer incidence statistics. Methods: Completeness of Indigenous identification was assessed for the eight Australian cancer registries using an innovative indirect assessment method based on registry-specific registration rates for smoking-related cancers. National age-standardised incidence rates and rate ratios (Indigenous:non-Indigenous) were calculated for all cancers combined and 26 individual cancer sites. Multivariate regression analysis was used to investigate trends in Indigenous cancer incidence by time or remoteness of residence, and whether the incidence rate ratio (Indigenous:non-Indigenous) was different in younger than older age-groups. Results: Four ...
Indigenous Australian volunteers are underrepresented in the Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program. In July 2014, DFAT released the AVID Indigenous Participation Framework, which seeks to address barriers to the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in the program. The framework is designed to underpin the work of the AVID program delivery partners: Australian Volunteers International, Scope Global and Australian Red Cross.. Under the framework, the AVID delivery partners are pursuing a range of strategies to increase the participation of Indigenous Australians in the program. These include tailoring volunteer assignments, and modifying recruitment and selection methods to improve access for Indigenous Australians. The strategies will recognise informal or trade skills, and acknowledge the value of Indigenous heritage when working with local communities in developing countries. The delivery partners are also providing additional program ...
27/09/04. Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Policy Liddy Clark said today the Community Services Legislation Amendment Bill 2004 to be introduced this week would make it possible to prohibit home-brew kits in areas covered by an Alcohol Management Plan.. And Tourism, Fair Trading and Wine Industry Development Minister Margaret Keech said the Liquor Amendment Bill 2004 would ensure existing alcohol restrictions could be effectively enforced. Ms Clark said the Community Services Legislation Amendment Bill would address the problem of people avoiding alcohol restrictions by producing their own home-brew.. "Since 2002, the Queensland Government has been working in partnership with remote communities to implement Alcohol Management Plans to stop the cycle of alcohol abuse and violence in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities," she said. "A small number of communities have found the production of home brew is threatening to undermine the positive impacts alcohol ...
Diabetes Australia has welcomed the announcement by Hon Ken Wyatt AM, Minister for Indigenous Health of nearly $4m in funding to develop, pilot and implement new, culturally appropriate programs in Northern Australia to specifically help Indigenous children and youth affected by type 2 diabetes.. "West Australian data has shown rates of type 2 diabetes in young Aboriginal people may be 20-fold higher than in non-Indigenous young people," said Professor Greg Johnson, CEO of Diabetes Australia. "Type 1 diabetes is very rare in Aboriginal children and youth, but type 2 diabetes is at epidemic proportions." "These First Nations children and youth developing type 2 diabetes have hospitalisation rates 20-fold higher than non-Indigenous youth, and a very high-risk of end stage kidney disease.". "Rather than closing the gap - it has been getting wider.". "We have to reduce the profound and tragic impact type 2 diabetes is having on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.". "It is critical ...
In a paper just published online in Environmental International the authors (which includes THS Director, Rick Speare) make the case that the Australia-Papua New Guinea border in Torres Strait is critical for Australias biosecurity. Entry of emerging infectious diseases is much more likely via this Indo-Papuan conduit than elsewhere in Australia.. Abstract: Australia is free of many diseases, pests and weeds found elsewhere in the world due to its geographical isolation and relatively good health security practices. However, its health security is under increasing pressure due to a number of ecological, climatic, demographic and behavioural changes occurring globally. North Queensland is a high risk area (a health security hot spot) for Australia, due in part to its connection to neighbouring countries via the Torres Strait and the Indo‐Papuan conduit, its high diversity of wildlife reservoirs and its environmental characteristics. Major outbreaks of exotic diseases, pests and weeds in ...
The effectiveness of data linkage across the continuum of care has demonstrated that a most accurate assessment of drowning incidence is possible. These data reveal a drowning rate of 16.8/100,000 per annum for Indigenous children 0-19 years, which is 1.44 times higher than the incidence rate for Non-Indigenous children. Overall incidence was higher among Indigenous children and adolescents than Non-Indigenous children for every calendar year and age group (0-4 years; 5-9 years; 10-14 years) except those aged 15-19 years. Indigenous children have been identified as at risk [18], and in this study a national drowning mortality rate of 1.8 compares favourably against a national figure of 2.8 among Indigenous children 0-17 years in 2003-2007 [5]. Furthermore the fatality risk ratio for Queensland is an improvement on the national figure (1.2 vs 1.7 respectively) [5]. However, this study shows that considering death data alone is not necessarily a clear view of the drowning burden on the Indigenous ...
