The plain language section has been developed to provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Health Practitioners with up-to-date information on health conditions and related issues in an easily readable format. In this section, links to plain language information is gathered by health topic. These health topics in turn are grouped under main headings, which can each be accessed by placing your cursor over the main heading and clicking the left button on your mouse. A menu will drop down to show the health topics with links to their plain language reviews or background information.

Please be aware the reviews are linked to their original health topic section within the HealthInfoNet. To return to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker/Health Practitioner pages, click on the 'back' button at the top left of your computer screen. In the absence of plain language reviews a link has been provided to the HealthInfoNet 's comprehensive reviews.
