Indigenous Health: How the Primary Health Care Nurse can help Close the Gap - Tamika Campbell
Does your patient identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander (ATSI)? Asking this question can help Close the Gap and achieve health and life expectation equality for ATSI patients.
What is a 715 and how do I ensure that I am meeting the Medicare Benefits Schedule criteria? What are the follow up item numbers that can be billed in the practice using the practice nurse?
In this session Tamika Campbell helps primary health care nurses with learning how to provide ongoing care to ATSI patients and understanding what cultural awareness means in your practice.
Working in an Aboriginal Medical Service, Tamika understands what her patient needs are and she intends to share that knowledge with other practices so that we can all be responsible for Closing the Gap.
