Description

This resource kit for health professionals contains five Indigenous specific items containing information about risk factors and warning signs of cardiovascular disease (CVD):

Although all items are about the same topic, they contain different levels of information, so the health professional can choose the resource to suit their audience. The information booklet is designed to provide background information to the health worker, and the other resources are 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 is more for use by a health worker to provide themselves with more background information on CVD, the risk factors and warning signs.
