The implementation of the Otitis media guidelines program has been evaluated, and the findings released by the Australian Medicare Local Alliance, in the Evaluation of implementation of best practice models of care based on the updated recommendations for clinical care guidelines on the management of otitis media in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations.
This program aimed to enhance the capacity of general practitioners and other primary health care providers to provide high quality treatment for otitis media (OM) in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. The program was implemented from June 2012, for 12 months within eight sites, located in Western Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
The specific strategy to achieve this aim was to promote to GPs and others involved in providing health care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to adopt the evidence-based best practice set out in the updated Recommendations for Clinical care guidelines on the management of otitis media in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations.
Findings from the evaluation include:
