Aboriginal Primary Health Care: An Evidence-based Approach
Oxford University Press, 2003 - Aboriginal Australians - 658 pages
Aboriginal Primary Health Care: An Evidence-based Approach is a comprehensive study of primary health care issues affecting Aboriginal people in Australia. Using best practice models developed by Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services and exemplifying the World Health Organization's
decalration on primary health care, this book is the definitive source of evidence on the efforts of interventions for health issues faced by the Aboriginal population.
This second edition examines the burden of disease affecting the Aboriginal population, the influence of poverty, overcrowding and poor nutrition on health disparities, and consequences arising from inequities in access to care. It updates the evidence for the prevention and treatment of chronic
disease (such as diabetes and chronic renal failure) as well as those diseases rarely seen in the developed world. Substantial new information explores such issues as ischaemic and rheumatic heart disease, sexually transmitted infections, tuberculosis, leprosy, substance misuse, growth failure in
children, suicide prevention, custodial health, and the Australian policy process.
