Improving the implementation of 715 Health Checks for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients attending mainstream general practices (Supporting Healthy Futures)

  • Description
    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples continue to experience greater chronic disease burden compared to non-Indigenous Australians. Health Checks help to identify health risk factors before they become bigger health problems by providing an opportunity for prevention and early disease management. Health Checks are available to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people each year. Currently, Health Checks are under-delivered in mainstream general practice.
