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.
