A Structured Systems Approach to Improving Health Promotion Practice for Chronic Disease Prevention in Indigenous Communities

 

Overview

This project aims to produce practical and locally relevant information that health centres can use to improve health promotion service delivery. The project will develop and implement processes that will assess the quality of services they deliver to promote health and prevent chronic disease.

The project is working collaboratively with health centre staff in four Top End Indigenous primary health care centres, and trialing a model for continuous quality improvement (CQI) using a similar approach to that used in the Audit and Best Practice for Chronic Disease (ABCD) Project.

This research aims to make important contributions to understanding the use and effectiveness of quality improvement processes in health promotion.
