What are the Aboriginal Health Needs in your Practice?

Consultation has concluded

We would like to improve the support we provide to practices with Aboriginal patients as we recognise there may be a higher burden of chronic conditions and co-morbidities in this population who consequently require complex management by their GP.

Across Western Australia, Aboriginal people account for 3.8 % of our population; however this is higher in some areas than others. They may also engage more with some practices within a suburb or town than others.

By understanding which practices have Aboriginal patients we will be able to provide better assistance to these practices and their clinicians across Aboriginal-specific health initiatives. We will also be better placed to ensure these practices are aware of changes that have implications for Aboriginal patients. For example, the recent removal of blood glucose strips from the PBS may affect Aboriginal patients to a greater degree as prior to the change many were not registered with NDSS as they could access strips via CTG registration.

Please help us to help you by completing the survey below.
