Aboriginal Primary Health Care: An Evidence-Based Approach is a comprehensive treatment 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 HealthOrganization's declaration on primary health care, this book aims to assist those working the field of Aboriginal health to understand the evidence based behind primary care interventions.Aboriginal Primary Health Care describes clearly and systematically how Aboriginal health is affected by the burden of suffering, poverty, overcrowding, and poor nutrition. The evidence for various preventative measures is assessed, including screening, chemoprophylaxis, vaccination, and strategiesof population behaviour-change. Recommendations for way of implementing these measures are discussed. Issues surrounding implementation are also canvassed: for example, the use of information technology to develop processes that can be integrated into clinical practice to ensure sustainablepreventive routines, and performance indicators for in-service use.
