Sharing Success: Improving Secondary Prophylaxis For Acute Rheumatic Fever In Indigenous Communities

 

Overview

This qualitative study used semi-structured interviews with patients, parents/care givers and health professionals to explore the enablers of and barriers to the uptake of secondary antibiotic prophylaxis by Indigenous peoples with acute rheumatic fever (ARF) and/or rheumatic heart disease (RHD). Data from participant interviews (with 11 patients/carers and 11 health practitioners) conducted in four far north Queensland sites were analyzed.
