National guide to a preventive health assessment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People   ISBN: 978-0-86906-341-5

“The review and updating of the first (2005) edition of the National guide to a preventive health assessment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people (‘National Guide’) was a joint initiative of the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) and The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) National Faculty of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health. The National Guide is a practical resource intended for all health professionals delivering primary healthcare to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people. Its purpose is to provide GPs and other health professionals with an accessible, user-friendly guide to best practice in preventive healthcare for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.

This second edition of the National Guide comprises:

the National Guide, which contains evidence statements, recommendations, risk calculation tables and an outline of the development of the guide
the evidence base: the collection of evidence underpinning the guide and recommendations (electronic only) (see the Methodology section ‘Searching the evidence base and drafting recommendations’)
a child and adult lifecycle summary wall chart listing activities recommended at each age group.”
