Are you of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander origin?
We need to ask everyone this question to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders.
The under-identification of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in health services and national health data sets is a fundamental barrier to achieving health equality for all Australians.
Therefore, it is essential to collect the correct data, to better ensure the best support and services are offered to all patients.
CheckUP have developed some “asking the question” printable resources, to assist clinics in illustrating the importance of capturing this data.
