    There has been a decline (61%) in deaths from circulatory diseases between 1998 and 2018 for First Nations Peoples. However, heart disease is still a major contributor to the gap in life expectancy between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians.

    The Heart Foundation wants to improve the heart health of all Australians by providing information and resources to reduce risk of heart disease, so we have developed new and updated web content on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health for health professionals and consumers.

    New pages for consumers

    New pages for health professionals

    The 2020 Australian guideline for prevention, diagnosis and management of acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease (3rd edition) was released on 28 February. Available at https://www.rhdaustralia.org.au/arf-rhd-guideline, it is the definitive guide to current ARF and RHD diagnosis and management in Australia.

    There are a number of important clinical changes in this new version that will impact on the management of the patients on the SA RHD register. These include changes to:

    • The diagnostic criteria for ARF in low risk populations and recurrent episodes
    • Recommendations for the duration of secondary prophylaxis
    • Priority definitions and timing of follow-up in the ‘priority classification system’ for presence and severity of RHD

    The 2020 version also has some new chapters including culture and workforce where a socio-ecological model stresses the importance of focusing on the individual and their culture in all clinical interactions. Check out the five minute video (found at the above address) outlining the changes from the 2012 version

    The ITC Staff Forum is being planned for the 13-14 November to be held at Adelaide.

    We are currently confirming the venue and some of the details surrounding the agenda

    Based on the feedback that was provided at the last ITC Staff Forum, we have changed some of the format and setting of the Forum. This includes:

    • This upcoming staff forum will be a 2 Day Event.
    • It is being held mid week rather than at the end of the week for those that are travelling great distances.
    • In the format, 15 minute 'Work Check In' breaks are being completed in order for staff to deal with client issues immediately after sessions.
    • The timing of sessions has changed to a maximum of 1 hour sessions
    • More time for networking- both structured and unstructured, including but not limited to Peer Support Meeting time.
    • The second day is an activity day in groups of three, based on roles, to work together on Optimal Cancer Pathways.

    You will find the proposed agenda linked here.
  • Aboriginal Chronic Disease Consortium Update

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    The SA Aboriginal Chronic Disease Consortium are working on Aboriginal Diabetes Education Resources project to develop a series of video resources featuring members of a variety of rural and remote South Australian Aboriginal communities, to capture diabetes stories that highlight challenges and successes in managing diabetes and diabetes risks and complications, with health professionals (including Aboriginal health professionals) providing background information and explanations about the disease and the necessary measures to manage it, in language that is appropriate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people (including APY languages).

    Having Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members share their diabetes story, with an underlying message that diabetes is avoidable, will help to break down a prevailing sense in Aboriginal communities that getting diabetes is inevitable. We also hope to deliver the message that although you may get diabetes, with the right care and management, including some lifestyle changes, you can still live a happy and fulfilling life.

    The Project is set to be finalised in December and is funded by the CSAPHN. In November, Project Manager Doug will be talking with us and potentially give us a preview of the work. This will mean that ITC Staff will have at their disposal video resources in delivering Diabetes Awareness in prevention and management strategies to clients and the community, that have been made by the community in partnership with Diabetes Educators.

    More information is available via the Consortium Newsletter.
