This weeks NACCHO tribute National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Association (NATSIHWA)

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Association (NATSIHWA) is the peak body for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners in Australia.

It was established in 2009, following the Australian Government’s announcement of funding to strengthen the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce as part of its ‘Closing the Gap’ initiative.

NATSIHWA’s goal is to promote the ongoing recognition of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners as a vital and valued component of a strong professional Aboriginal health workforce to obtain better health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

You will find Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners working in rural, regional, remote and urban locations.

They are employed largely by the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector, other Aboriginal Medical Services, mainstream and private health services.

NATSIHWA compliments the other discipline-specific Indigenous health bodies such as the Australian Indigenous Doctors Association (AIDA), Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA) and Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses (CATSINaM).

However, NATSIHWA is the ONLY organisation in Australia that has a prime focus on Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners. Policy development, mentoring and support, education and professional development forums, and media activities are all critical components of the NATSIHWA’s role and responsibilities.

RESEARCH ASSISTANT HEALTH PROMOTION IN INDIGENOUS EYE HEALTH Closes 26 November

Division/Faculty: Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences
Department/School: Melbourne School of Population and Global Health
Salary: $69,148 – $93,830 (Level A)
Role & Superannuation rate: Academic – 9.5% superannuation

Unlike many illnesses and disabilities, most poor eye health is preventable or treatable.  Although Australian Indigenous people are reported to have the world’s best vision, as a group they have rates of blindness and vision loss at least 10 times higher than mainstream. Much of the poor eye health is due to inappropriate or inadequate health service delivery.

In addition, Australia is the only developed country to still have trachoma and in many outback areas, Indigenous communities have rates of trachoma as high as anywhere in the world.  This blinding, infectious disease disappeared from mainstream Australia 100 years ago but a concerted program to address trachoma in Australia is still to be implemented.

The successful applicant will join a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of researchers working on Indigenous eye health.

You will be based in the Indigenous Eye Health (IEH) Group in the Indigenous Health Equity Unit, Centre for Health Equity in the Melbourne School of Population & Global Health.

As part of a small team, the Research Assistant will support and contribute to the work of IEH developing, implementing and delivering health promotion and social marketing strategies designed to support the Roadmap.  The work will focus on trachoma health promotion and social marketing and will utilise a number of Indigenous sport, art, media and community groups to engage and raise awareness of trachoma elimination and the availability of eye health services. The role requires engaging with children and adults in remote Indigenous communities and with health, education and other partners and sector stakeholders.

This position will enable the Research Assistant to contribute to improvements in Indigenous eye health delivering genuine community outcome and benefit.  This work is of national and international significance, and provides an opportunity to contribute to the systematic implementation of evidence-based sustainable public health strategies using Indigenous eye health as a model.

The IEH is led by Melbourne Laureate Professor, Harold Mitchell Chair of Indigenous Eye Health, Professor Hugh R Taylor AC. The Research Assistant will report directly to the lead of the trachoma team. As a member of the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health’s academic team, the successful candidate will be expected to support the broad ethos of the School and the School’s compliance with University policies and procedures, including environmental health and safety.

IEH strongly encourages applications from Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Australians.

The Scholarship will be awarded for a full course of study, subject to review at the end of each year.  The Scholarship may be withheld or terminated if a Scholarship holder’s performance in any semester is unsatisfactory. The final decision to withhold or terminate a Scholarship is at the discretion of the AMA..

The value of the Scholarship in 2019 will be $10,000 per annum, paid in a lump sum.

Please note that it is the responsibility of applicants to seek advice from Centrelink on how the Scholarship payment may affect ABSTUDY or any other government payment.

1.1 : Our tribute to the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Association (NATSIHWA)

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Association (NATSIHWA) is the peak body for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners in Australia.

It was established in 2009, following the Australian Government’s announcement of funding to strengthen the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce as part of its ‘Closing the Gap’ initiative.

NATSIHWA’s goal is to promote the ongoing recognition of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners as a vital and valued component of a strong professional Aboriginal health workforce to obtain better health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

You will find Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners working in rural, regional, remote and urban locations. They are employed largely by the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector, other Aboriginal Medical Services, mainstream and private health services.

NATSIHWA compliments the other discipline-specific Indigenous health bodies such as the Australian Indigenous Doctors Association (AIDA), Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA) and Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses (CATSINaM). However, NATSIHWA is the ONLY organisation in Australia that has a prime focus on Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners. Policy development, mentoring and support, education and professional development forums, and media activities are all critical components of the NATSIHWA’s role and responsibilities.

NATSIHWA is governed by a Board of nine Directors – one from each State and Territory and one from the Torres Strait Island

Services

Our organisation, through our members’ work, contributes significantly to closing the gap in health outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, which is of direct and immediate benefit to Aboriginal communities across Australia and also a significant national priority for Australia. NATSIHWA supports Health Workers and Health Practitioners and their communities through our programs, by:

– Providing tools and resources for Health Workers and Health Practitioners and their services

– Facilitating and delivering professional development opportunities to contribute to their effectiveness in their roles

– Raising awareness in broader Australia public (particularly health sector) and building alliances to address Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health priorities

– Communicating and networking across the Health Sector to bring greater awareness of the effective models of care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

– Building networks among Health Workers and Health Practitioners, and other health professions and the broader health sector

– Offering mentoring to develop leadership and capabilities in our members

Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Health Practitioners work with communities, families, and individuals of all ages. They work autonomously and in teams with other health professionals, including medical doctors, registered nurses and midwives, dentists, psychologists, allied health professionals; and with policy makers, educators and researchers.

They provide a range of health services depending upon the work setting and individual scope of practice. These may include, but are not limited to:

~ clinical services such as:

– assessment and screening of physical health and social emotional wellbeing

– health promotion for risk factors (e.g. tobacco, healthy eating)

– providing health care in line with care plans and/or treatment protocols

– supporting clients in self-management, including the safe use of traditional and Western medications

~ planning, delivering and evaluating population health programs

~ advocating for clients, including interpreting and translating language

NACCHO Aboriginal Health Alert : Download @RoyalFlyingDoc Report : Looking Ahead: Responding to the Health Needs 2028 #Remote population stable, but chronic illness and #rural workforce shortage to jump over decade

“Chronic illness growth and rural workforce shortage is but a forecast.

Investing in country health services and rural health professionals can halt these forecasts from ever being realised.

Investing now will save lives and dollars in the long run.”

RFDS CEO Dr Martin Laverty called the report a call to arms.

Download the Report HERE

RFDS NACCHO_Looking_Ahead_Report_D3

  ” Indigenous Australians comprise approximately 2.8% of the total Australian population, although they comprise almost half the population in remote areas.

The RFDS notes the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) and its state-based organisations provide a pivotal service to rural and remote communities. NACCHO supports the Aboriginal Medical Service (AMS) which is a primary healthcare service operated by local Aboriginal communities.

The RFDS works in close partnership with many remote branches of the AMS, and respects and promotes the principle of community control “

 “The RFDS respects and acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first Australians and our vision for reconciliation is a culture that strives for unity, equity and respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.

The RFDS is committed to improved health outcomes and access to health services for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, and our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) outlines our intentions to use research and policy to drive this improvement.

RFDS research and policy reports, such as this one, include data on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as part of a broader effort to improve health outcomes and access to health services a contribution to the ‘Close the Gap’ campaign.”

RFDS Press Release

Australia’s remote population is forecast to grow only marginally in a decade. Yet chronic illness will rise dramatically, with the burden of mental illness forecast to increase by a fifth, if action is not taken to halt current trends.

Health service access in rural regions is also forecast to lag behind metropolitan areas, according to Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) research: From 90 to 100: Planning for the health needs of country Australia in 2028. The report provides health service forecasts form 2018, the RFDS 90th year of operation until 2028, the centenary year of the RFDS.

The forecast shows while the Australian population will grow from 25 million to 29 million in a decade, remote and very remote Australia’s population will grow by an average of only 0.2% each year, from 493,752 to only 504,724 in 2028.

11.8 million Australians currently live with at least one chronic illness, with 2028 forecasts equalling 13.8 million, a national increase of 15.6%. Yet chronic illness prevalence forecast to remain higher in remote Australia than metropolitan areas.

Disability-adjusted life years (DALY), or the number of years lost to ill-health, disability or early death, are forecast to increase in remote areas over the decade to 2028 with:

  • cancer up by 15.6%, from 37.6 to 44 DALYs;
  • mental illness up by 21.6%, from 21.8 to 27.1 DALYs;
  • neurological conditions such as Alzheimers, up by 47.8%, from 13.2 to 21.5 DALYs.

A welcome fall of 22.8% in the burden of cardiovascular disease in remote Australia is forecast, from 37.6 DALYs down to 29.9 in 2028, reflecting improvement in heart attack prevention and treatment in parts of country Australia.

The report forecasts by 2028 remote Australia will have only:

  • a fifth the number of General Practitioners compared to metropolitan areas (43 compared to 255 per 100,000 population);
  • a twelfth of the number of physiotherapists (23 compared to 276 per 100,000 population);
  • half the number of pharmacists (52 as compared to 113 per 100,000 population);
  • and a third the number of psychologists (34 as compared to 104 per 100,000 population).

Nurse and midwifery levels in metropolitan and remote areas by 2028 are forecast to be almost even, with 1,361 per 100,000 population in city areas and 1,259 in remote areas.

A survey of rural clinicians published in the report finds health literacy, mental health services, and improved access to primary care services are priorities for the next decade. The report also forecasts growth in demand for RFDS services by its centenary year in 2028.

NACCHO Aboriginal Health NEWS ALERT : @AMAPresident speech to Indigenous Doctors @AIDAAustralia #AIDAConf2018 – Making Indigenous health an election issue -Together we can indeed turn vision into action.

 

” The latest data indicate that only three of the seven Closing the Gap targets are on track to be met.

This is a potent political message to get the attention of the major parties and the broader Australian community – the voters.

And we now have a significant opportunity to advocate strongly for Government action to do better – a Federal Election is drawing closer.

The coming months are the perfect time to campaign and advocate to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.”

Everybody knows that health policy changes votes.

There will be more significant funding announcements across the health portfolio in the next six to nine months.

We must ensure that Indigenous health gets its fair share.”

I acknowledge the Wadjuk Noongar people – thetraditional owners and custodians of the land, and pay respects to their elders, past and present.

My thanks to the Australian Indigenous Doctors’ Association for the invitation to speak here today. It is a great privilege.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people face adversity in many aspects of their lives.

There is arguably no greater indicator of disadvantage than the appalling state of Indigenous health.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are needlessly sicker, and are dying much younger than their non-Indigenous peers.

What is even more disturbing is that many of these health problems and deaths stem from preventable causes.

There are many groups and organisations dedicated fulltime to changing things – AIDA, NACCHO, Lowitja, Aurora, the Medical Colleges, the universities, AMSA (our medical students), the nurses and midwives, and other foundations and agencies. Too many to mention.

And there are many individuals who campaign long and loud and hard – people like our MC today, Dr Jeff McMullen.

The AMA places improving Indigenous Health always as a major priority in our advocacy.

I see our role more as a catalyst for political action.

We have significant influence within Federal politics in Canberra across the whole spectrum of health.

We have policy, much of it contained in our annual Report Cards.

And we respond to policy or funding announcements – or lack of them – at Budget time.

Tragically, we have seen more cuts than top-ups. Funding is going backwards.

The core of AMA policy is the same as everybody at this Conference – proper funding for proven targeted programs and services that are delivered in a community-controlled way.

The AMA will work closely with all stakeholders to ensure all our policies get the attention and responses they deserve.

But, as we all know, the battle to gain meaningful and lasting improvements has been long and hard, and it continues.

The statistics speak for themselves:

  • A life expectancy gap of around ten years remains between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians.
  • The death rate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children is still more than double the rate for non-Indigenous children.
  • Preventable admissions and deaths are three times higher in ATSI people.
  • Medicare expenditure is about half the needs-based requirements, and PBS expenditure is about one third the needs-based requirements.

On top of this, we have the Closing the Gap targets to map progress – or measure failure.

The latest data indicate that only three of the seven Closing the Gap targets are on track to be met.

The target to halve the gap in child mortality by 2018 is on track.

The target to have 95 per cent of all Indigenous four-year-olds enrolled in early childhood education by 2025is on track.

The target to close the gap in school attendance by 2018is not on track.

The target to halve the gap in reading and numeracy by 2018 is not on track.

The target to halve the gap in Year 12 attainment by 2020 is on track.

The target to halve the gap in employment by 2018 is not on track.

The target to close the gap in life expectancy by 2031 is not on track.

Three out of seven is not good.

This is a potent political message to get the attention of the major parties and the broader Australian community – the voters.

And we now have a significant opportunity to advocate strongly for Government action to do better – a Federal Election is drawing closer.

The coming months are the perfect time to campaign and advocate to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.

Everybody knows that health policy changes votes.

The Coalition almost lost Government in 2016 because of health policy.

It is not surprising that we are currently seeing a much higher profile for health issues.

We currently have a focus on aged care. The Government has announced a Royal Commission.

This week the Government announced more funding for meningococcal vaccine.

There is an ongoing review of the Medicare Benefits Schedule.

The Health Minister relishes making regular ‘good news’ announcements of new drugs and treatments under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme – the PBS.

Changes to private health insurance will be announced soon.

And there will be a bidding war on public hospital funding, just like we saw this week on MRI machines.

All these things cost money – lots of money.

There will be more significant funding announcements across the health portfolio in the next six to nine months.

We must ensure that Indigenous health gets its fair share.

The AMA has repeatedly said that it is not credible that Australia, one of the world’s wealthiest countries, cannot address the health and social justice issues that affect three per cent of its citizens.

We will continue to work with all governments and all political parties to improve health and life outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

More importantly, we will work tirelessly with you to achieve our shared goals.

Together we can indeed turn vision into action.

NACCHO Aboriginal Health Workforce and Training News : Our peak bodies @KenWyattMP and @CPMC_Aust Building the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce and strengthening alliances to address the health priorities of Indigenous Australians.

 

” NACCHO stresses the importance of continuing to grow the depth and number of Indigenous people in the health sector.

Improving the health of our people can only occur through partnership, and integrating health care providers with community controlled services is the key.

Ms Patricia Turner, CEO of the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO)

 “Background :  On 31 May 2017 the Australian Government joined with the Council of Presidents of Medical Colleges, the Australian Indigenous Doctor’s Association and the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation as partners to improve the good health and wellbeing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Focussing on Tier Three of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan, partners are working in collaboration to improve system performance by focussing on two key comprehensive areas for collective strategic action: increase the health workforce and embed cultural safety and competency in the system

Signed Agreement

Australia’s peak bodies for Indigenous health and specialist medicine have reaffirmed their commitment to working with the Australian Government as partners in reducing the current gap in health outcomes and life expectancy between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians under the Closing the Gap strategy.

Introducing the forum held on Wednesday 12th September at Parliament House, Minister Ken Wyatt AM, welcomed the opportunity to continue discussions under the National Partnership, highlighting the Australian Government’s commitment to Closing the Gap as the platform for improving the health and wellbeing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The decision by Australian Health Ministers through the Council of Australian Governments Health Council to develop a National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workforce Plan by 2019 was welcomed by the collaborative partners.

Discussing the key areas of the partnership, cultural safety and access to services remain top priorities.

The Chair of the Council of Presidents of Medical Colleges (CPMC) Dr Philip Truskett AM reported that the key focus area of increasing the Indigenous specialist medical workforce by focussing on support, mentoring, role modelling was core business for Australia’s specialist Medical Colleges.

Indigenous Health Minister Ken Wyatt AM said the collaborative group was ideally placed to play an essential role in the COAG Health Council resolution to develop a National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health and Medical Workforce Plan – to ensure more Aboriginal doctors, nurses and health workers on country and in our towns and cities, local warriors for health among our families and communities.

Dr Kali Hayward, President Australian Indigenous Doctor’s Association (AIDA) reflected on building culturally appropriate health workforce and the need to discover champions in the system to support training.

Ms Janine Mohammed, CEO Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives (CATSINaM) highlighted the merit in greater coordination of services to deliver improvements in health outcomes.

Mr Karl Briscoe, CEO, National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers Association (NATSIHWA) highlighted the importance of building the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce and strengthening alliances to address the health priorities of Indigenous Australians.

All partners acknowledged a National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workforce Plan will form the framework for furthering collective action to increase the Indigenous health workforce and embed a cultural safety capability in Australia’s health system.

NACCHO Aboriginal Health Workforce Survey : Please support #CareerPathways the first national survey of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health staff across all professions, roles and locations.

Welcome to the first national survey of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health staff across all professions, roles and locations.

If you have done the survey before – thank you! Please do not complete it again.

NACCHO Aboriginal Health Remote Workforce News : @senbmckenzie announces Australia’s remote rural health workforce will receive additional training, support and professional services, thanks to a $13.7 million grant to @CRANAplus

 

This investment will help to ensure more than 1500 health professionals in remote Australia are properly supported to meet the unique challenges faced by those working in isolated practices,” 

The grant allows CRANAplus to continue supporting our rural and remote health professionals and ensure Australians living in our most geographically isolated regions can access high‑quality, professional healthcare services.

Remote communities often do not have local hospitals or general practitioners. Healthcare services are typically provided by Remote Area Nurses and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers, supported by visiting medical and allied health professionals.

Minister for Rural Health, Senator Bridget McKenzie, said the $13.7 million over three years would enable CRANAplus to continue its work addressing the barriers to recruiting and retaining health professionals in remote and isolated parts of Australia.

Australia’s remote rural health workforce will receive additional training, support and professional services, thanks to a $13.7 million grant to CRANAplus from the Federal Government.

CRANAplus is a member-based national organisation that provides health professionals and their families working in remote communities with training, support and professional services that are relevant and appropriate to their practices.

“Member-based training programs like CRANAplus are vital to attracting, maintaining and enabling the careers of remote healthcare workers.”

“Supporting their work is part of this Government’s continued commitment and investment in our healthcare workforce to deliver equality of healthcare for all Australians, no matter where they live,” the Senaor said.

CRANAplus Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Cliffe, said people living in remote parts of the country had less access to the sorts of health services most Australians took for granted.

“If you live, work or are travelling in remote Australia and become acutely unwell or have an accident, you are unlikely to have a local hospital or private general practitioner within ‘cooee’,” Mr Cliffe said.

“The first health professional you’ll see is probably going to be a Remote Area Nurse, who will provide your treatment or stabilise you for evacuation to the nearest hospital.

“Thanks to this grant, we will be able to continue supporting health professionals such as Remote Area Nurses to ensure they are available where and when people in remote parts of the country need them most,” he said.

The Coalition Government is absolutely committed to ensuring all Australians have access to a first-class health system.

Part of this is the Stronger Rural Health Strategy – a transformational policy to build a sustainable, high-quality health workforce that is distributed across regional Australia.

This Stronger Rural Health Strategy will deliver approximately 3000 additional specialist GPs for rural Australia, more than 3000 additional nurses in rural general practice and hundreds of additional allied health professionals in rural Australia over 10 years.

The Stronger Rural Health Strategy will also enable a stronger role for nurses and allied health professionals in the delivery of more multidisciplinary, team-based models of primary healthcare in rural and regional Australia.
