    National Continuous Quality Improvement Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health care


     


    From 1 July 2015, the Government will progressively implement a new funding approach for the Indigenous Australians’ health program.


     


    This will support the delivery of effective and efficient primary health care services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The new approach will support the targeted use of funds in regions whose populations experience high health need and population growth.


     


    The Department will consult closely with the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) and its affiliates, and State and Territory governments, in implementing this approach.


     


    In 2015-16, the Government will implement a National continuous quality improvement framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health care through the expansion of the Healthy for Life activity. This will support the delivery of guideline-based primary health care and support improved health outcomes.

    Jean Hailes for Womens Health survey


     


    Jean Hailes for women's health is conducting two surveys to identify gaps in the health care of women in Australia. The surveys are for health consumers or health professionals.


     


    The project aims to identify the gaps in the health care needs of women in Australia. The aim of the surveys are to find out what the health information and health services needs are. This will assist Jean Hailes to better understand and respond to women's needs and is the first time women across Australia have been asked their opinion on their health information and service needs.


     


    All women over the age of 18 years living in Australia are encouraged to respond to the surveys which will be open until Wednesday, 11 February 2015. A summary of the research results will be available via the Jean Hailes website link below following the complettion of the project. Conference and journal papers will also be published.
