Description

Note: This resource has been superseded. For the latest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resources from the Heart Foundation, click here.

This kit for health professionals was made up of five Indigenous-specific resources containing information about risk factors and warning signs of cardiovascular disease (CVD):

Although all items were about the same topic, they contained different levels of information, so the health professional could choose the resource to suit their audience. The information booklet was designed to provide background information to the health worker, and the other resources were designed to show to members of the general public while providing detailed explanations.

When to use this resource

The flipcharts could be used in a small group setting or with individuals to talk in depth about CVD, the risk factors and warning signs. The posters could be displayed at community events, in an office, a health centre or a community centre. They could be used to generate discussions about the warning signs of a heart attack or to advertise a talk.

The information booklet was more for use by a health worker to provide themselves with more background information on CVD, the risk factors and warning signs.
