Type 2 diabetes in Australia’s children and young people: a working paper.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This paper discusses the need for monitoring type 2 diabetes in youth and adults aged 10 to 39 years in Australia, including Indigenous Australians.

It identifies and discusses the value and limitations of the national data sources currently available to undertake this task.

It covers information about:

  • diabetes
  • the costs to society
  • health complications for individuals.

The paper presents the latest available incidence and prevalence information about type 2 diabetes in those aged 10 to 39 years.

Healthy for life: results for July 2007-June 2011.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This report presents data from services receiving Healthy for life (HfL) funding, including the number of clients and health outcomes measured by 10 essential indicators (EIs) covering maternal and child health and chronic disease care:

  • timing of first antenatal visit
  • average birthweight
  • low and high birthweight babies
  • risk factors identified during pregnancy
  • immunisation rates
  • conduct of adult health checks
  • chronic disease management plans, GP management plans and team care arrangements
  • glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) blood tests for clients with type 2 diabetes (whether done in the last 6 months, and the results)
  • blood pressure tests for clients with type 2 diabetes (whether done in the last 6 months, and the results)
  • blood pressure tests for clients with coronary heart disease (whether done in the last 6 months, and the results)

It is the first publicly released report published since data collection and reporting for the Healthy for life program began in 2007. Healthy for life (HfL) program was established with a set of key objectives to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The report provides comparisons over time, making it easy to see how the program has developed and its major achievements.

About 100 health services were funded as part of the program, but not all were required to provide data. Those providing data for the report represent 85% of all services funded in the 2010-11 reporting period. The services are widely distributed in every state and territory, from major cities to very remote areas.

The HfL aligns with the principles and priorities of the National Strategic Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (NSF), 2003- 2013 and the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Closing the gap initiative, and is the first Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) funded program with a strong focus on continuous quality improvement (CQI) to collect and report on health outcome data that goes beyond service activity reporting.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework: 2012 report.

Canberra: Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, Department of Health and Ageing

This is the fourth report under the auspice of the Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council to measure progress against the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework (HPF). The framework has become one of the key means of monitoring progress in Closing the gap between Indigenous and other Australians. It was reviewed and revised in 2011 and now includes 68 key measures (previously 71 measures) under the following tiers:

  • Tier 1-Health status and outcomes: measures the prevalence of health conditions including disease or injury, human function, life expectancy, wellbeing and deaths.
  • Tier 2-Determinants of health: measures of the determinants of health, including socioeconomic status, environmental factors and health behaviours.
  • Tier 3-Health system performance: measures of the health system, including effectiveness, responsiveness, accessibility, continuity, capability and sustainability.

The aim of the report is to promote accountability, inform policy and research, and generate informed debate. The report includes an overview of current national policies and strategies, and data analysis for each of the three tiers.

Healthy lifestyle programs for physical activity and nutrition.

Canberra: Closing the Gap Clearinghouse

This report assesses the evidence regarding the effectiveness of physical activity and nutrition intervention programs in reducing the incidence of chronic diseases in Indigenous communities. The report also describes the burden of lifestyle-related chronic diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease) affecting Indigenous Australians and assesses strategies that have the potential to be affective.

The authors conclude from the evidence that healthy lifestyle programs can help to combat lifestyle-related chronic diseases. In particular, the programs that were found to be most effective were community-based projects that were initiated and managed by the communities in which they were run. Individual, family and group-based Indigenous healthy lifestyle projects were found to have positive effects in the short term (up to two years). It is not known whether these effects are sustained in the long term as few programs have both the resources and impetus to continue long term.

Chronic condition management strategies in Aboriginal communities: final report 2011.

Adelaide: Flinders University and the Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia

The main aim of the Chronic condition management strategies in Aboriginal communities project was to evaluate the effectiveness of tailoring mainstream chronic care management strategies to suit Indigenous clients and settings. This was achieved through assessing the health outcomes and impacts, and the sustainability of the strategies. The strategies included:

  • structured care planning focused on clients' problems and goals
  • training in chronic disease self management and management support for health staff and peer leaders
  • coordinated holistic team care.

Data collection involved the analysis of health service records of 36 clients involved in chronic care management over 1-10 years, and semi-structured interviews with 18 clients and 12 staff.

The research was conducted by a team from Flinders University and the Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia, in collaboration with Aboriginal clients and community members from Port Lincoln Aboriginal Health Service, Nunkuwarrin Yunti of South Australia Inc. and Riverland Commuity Health Service.

The authors conclude that people involved in structured chronic condition management strategies (eg care plans) improve their health and wellbeing over time. A range of barriers and enablers of chronic condition management strategies were identified and the authors highlight the importance of tailoring new initiatives to suit individual needs and local circumstances.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework: 2010 report.

Canberra: Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, Department of Health and Ageing

This is the third report developed under the auspice of the Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council to measure progress against the National strategic framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health as well as the more recent measures introduced under Closing the gap national partnerships.

The performance framework reports on the three tiers of health:

  • health status and outcomes: this includes measures of prevalence of disease or injury, human function, life expectancy and wellbeing
  • measures of the health determinants: this includes socioeconomic status, environmental factors and health behaviours
  • health system performance: this includes effectiveness, responsiveness, accessibility and sustainability.
Major findings of the report include:
  • a significant decline in Indigenous deaths due to avoidable causes
  • narrowing of the mortality gap
  • reduction in infant mortality
  • chronic diseases are a continuing concern, contributing to two thirds of the health gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians
  • there were slight reductions in literacy and numeracy gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students
  • risky behaviours, such as smoking and lack of physical activity, were continuing concerns among Indigenous people
  • access to, and utilisation of medical services is less than expected given higher levels of illness
  • access to medical services is more difficult in remote than non-remote areas.

Diabetes in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population, 2004-05.

Canberra: Australian Bureau of Statistics

In 2004-05 the Australian Bureau of Statistics conducted two nation-wide health surveys: the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey and the National Health Survey. These surveys were designed to enable comparisons between the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous people.

The results relating to diabetes in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population have been presented as a brief statistical summary and include a comparison with the non-Indigenous population.

The data presented in this report shows that the burden of diabetes is greater for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people than it is for other Australians. For all Australians, developing diabetes later in life is more likely to occur for those who lead an inactive lifestyle, and are overweight or obese.

Australia's health 2008: the eleventh biennial health report of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

Australia's health 2008 was released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare as the eleventh edition of its biennial national health report. The report shows that Australia is one of the healthiest nations in the world, with most Australians generally have good health and access to a range of good health care services, but Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples continue to have much poorer health than the general population.

Section 3.2 of the report compiles health information on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Information about the demographic profile, health status, disability rates, and service use is provided. The section highlights that despite improvements in Indigenous death rates, the overall gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous rates appears to be widening with Indigenous Australians continuing to die at much younger ages. Indigenous Australians also continue to have a greater disease burden, higher rates of disability and a lower quality of life than other Australians. The section concludes with information on behaviours and health risk factors that shape the health status of Indigenous peoples such as tobacco use, alcohol misuse, illicit drug use, and housing conditions.
