Health practitioners who work with Indigenous people can now rapidly locate resources relevant to their work, following the launch of a dynamic new component of the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet this week.
The HealthInfoNet's 'Health practice resources' database provides quick access to more than 750 guidelines, toolkits, manuals, protocols, assessment tools and other resources that directly assist health practitioners. The database is continually being updated as new guidelines and tools are released.
The customisable search function enables resources to be located by year, subject or format, and covers more than 50 health topics relevant to Indigenous people in Australia. These include cancer, lung health, alcohol and other drugs, environmental health, nutrition, physical activity and social and emotional wellbeing.
'Health practitioners are busy people who require quick access to tools that can support them in their work,' said Professor Neil Thomson, Director of the HealthInfoNet.
'The ability to rapidly search the HealthInfoNet for resources will be of great benefit to practitioners. This new website function complements the HealthInfoNet's existing bibliographic search, which offers access to Indigenous health literature and research, and our searchable database of health promotion (patient education) resources.'
