The National guide to a preventive health assessment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people (second edition) was released today (31 May 2012) by Minister for Indigenous Health, Warren Snowdon.
This is the second edition of the National guide, which is an up-to-date, evidence-based national resource that informs healthcare providers and policy makers on a defined set of activities that are relevant to Indigenous people. The guide was developed by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO).
'This guide provides health professionals with the most up-to-date, best practice advice in preventive health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Importantly, this advice also focuses on the needs at different stages of life, caring for our youngest through to our oldest first Australians,' Minister Snowdon said at the launch.
