Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework: 2012 report.

Canberra: Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, Department of Health and Ageing

This is the fourth report under the auspice of the Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council to measure progress against the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework (HPF). The framework has become one of the key means of monitoring progress in Closing the gap between Indigenous and other Australians. It was reviewed and revised in 2011 and now includes 68 key measures (previously 71 measures) under the following tiers:

  • Tier 1-Health status and outcomes: measures the prevalence of health conditions including disease or injury, human function, life expectancy, wellbeing and deaths.
  • Tier 2-Determinants of health: measures of the determinants of health, including socioeconomic status, environmental factors and health behaviours.
  • Tier 3-Health system performance: measures of the health system, including effectiveness, responsiveness, accessibility, continuity, capability and sustainability.

The aim of the report is to promote accountability, inform policy and research, and generate informed debate. The report includes an overview of current national policies and strategies, and data analysis for each of the three tiers.

The Chronic kidney disease (CKD) model of care provides a framework for comprehensive, accessible and efficient provision of prevention and treatment of CKD and its complications for all Western Australians.

Key objectives of the CKD Model of Care are to ensure that renal services are optimally configured to:

  • prevent or delay the onset of CKD
  • prevent and slow progression of CKD and its complications, especially end-stage renal disease, heart disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease
  • improve the quality of life of people who have CKD
  • reduce CKD-related presentations to tertiary hospitals.

Additional objectives include addressing inequities in renal service provision, particularly for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other disadvantaged groups.
