spacing1About this portal

Chronic disease workers portal banner

This portal is intended as a quick reference for workers who work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients. The portal provides information about chronic conditions that are a problem for all Australians but particularly for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people: heart disease, diabetes, respiratory (lung) diseases, cancers and kidney disease.  It also covers physical activity and nutrition, two risk factors for many chronic conditions.

The portal provides an abbreviated version of content that is covered in more depth on other parts of the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet web resource. Information has been chosen for the portal because it is written in plain language and has practical application in daily work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients with chronic disease or disease risk. The portal provides access to health promotion resources, health practitioner tools and information about programs that promote healthy lifestyles and chronic disease management for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It also highlights workforce opportunities for chronic disease workers, including job vacancies, events, training and funding.

The Chronic disease workforce portal was launched in June 2016 and was produced with core funding from the Australian Government Department of Health.
