Survey of Rheumatic Heart Disease Australia

Date posted: 15 April 2013

An evaluation is being conducted of Rheumatic Heart Disease Australia (RHDAustralia) and their activities in preventing and managing acute rheumatic fever (ARF) and rheumatic heart disease (RHD). RHDAustralia is an initiative of Menzies School of Health Research. Their aim is to reduce death and disability from ARF and RHD in Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by prevention and management. Activities include supporting RHD programs, establishing a data collection and reporting system, disseminating evidence based best practice guidelines, and increasing community awareness of ARF/RHD and its prevention.

Health professionals who are likely to have contact with people who have or are at risk of ARF or RHD are invited to complete the 10 minute survey. Survey respondents can enter a random draw for two vouchers of $250 and $150. The survey is being managed by independent evaluator, Dr Anni Gethin, Research Director of Argyle Research, and is available online from RHDAustralia's Information page (see link below).
