Abstract adapted from Rural and Remote Health

This study examined the use of an Indigenous Mental Health Worker Register to assess the level of correct identification of Indigenous status and sources of error among psychiatric admissions within a regional public hospital information system. Inaccuracy in identification of Indigenous status on health records hampers collection of the good quality data required to guide policies, programs and services.
