Kimberley healthy adults project: guides for clinicians.

Perth: Western Australian Centre for Health and Ageing

These guides were developed as part of the Kimberley healthy adults project and aim to assist clinicians working with older Indigenous people living in rural and remote communities. The guides are not intended to provide information on how to diagnose or treat conditions, but rather as a guide to the predictors of these conditions and to identify interventions.

The guide provides information on the five major topics of the Kimberley healthy adults project:

  • falls
  • physical pain
  • continence support
  • depression
  • dementia.
