Relevance. The Program register collects available data at all stages on the bowel cancer screening pathway undertaken as part of the NBCSP. However, there are no mandatory requirements for data supply at any stage in the bowel cancer screening pathway so data are incomplete. It is also important to note that additional bowel cancer screening is undertaken outside of the NBCSP. Data on people screened outside the program are not routinely collected; therefore, the level of underestimation of overall bowel cancer screening is unknown.

Relevance. This indicator is interim. It is important to note that additional bowel cancer screening is undertaken outside of the NBCSP. Data on people screened outside the program are not routinely collected; therefore, the level of underestimation of overall bowel cancer screening is unknown. The NBCSP screens three specific ages (those aged 50, 55 and 65 years are invited to screen) and no single-age 2009 estimated population data are available for disaggregations such as socioeconomic status or remoteness. Therefore, these denominators are estimated based on 2009 5-year ERPs and use the proportion of each age in its respective age groups as documented in the 2006 Census of population and housing for the Australian population. A postal area (POA) to SLA to remoteness concordance and a POA to SLA to socioeconomic status concordance are used to allocate persons screened to remoteness and socioeconomic status categories based on their postcode or residence. Concordances are based on the 2006 Census and postcodes, boundaries and socioeconomic status and remoteness regions may have changed over time, creating inaccuracies. Where postcodes are not available in these concordances, the person’s participation data are excluded from the relevant disaggregation reported. Socioeconomic status rankings are calculated by SLA using a population based method at the Australia-wide level. These ranked socioeconomic status SLAs are then allocated to their relevant jurisdiction, meaning quintiles should contain similar socioeconomic groups across states and territories. Some data cells have been suppressed for confidentiality and reliability reasons (for example, the denominator is very small). Accuracy: Self-reporting of Indigenous status within the program is poor, with around 35 per cent of participants not responding to this question in 2009. Thus, participation rates based on Indigenous status are considered too unreliable to be included. The need to apply concordances to numerators and denominators introduces an unavoidable level of inaccuracy. As COAG denominator populations for disaggregation by socioeconomic status and remoteness are based on SLA, the numerator counts for this indicator also need to be based on SLA. Since the allocation of persons screened is based on their postcode or residence, this required the generation of a POA to SLA to remoteness concordance and a POA to SLA to socioeconomic status concordance. However, postcode data are limiting. These concordances ...
Relevance. Issue #1 – Continued Need for the Program There is a continued need for the HSIF program as evidenced by challenges faced by Inuit and First Nation people in accessing a full range of health services. Often, the absence of quality health services located in close proximity to First Nation and Inuit communities negatively impacts the continuity and timeliness of care received. Such challenges are more likely to be addressed through greater health services integration which can facilitate the coordination of priorities across partners at all levels of health care planning and service delivery. First Nation and Inuit clients seeking care in community often do not have access to a full range of health services. This is particularly relevant in the cases of remote or rural communities with low population density, and as a result do not have the developed infrastructure or capacity to support an array of health services (including treatment for complex diagnoses). A great majority of project coordinators interviewed identified there is a lack of First Nations and Inuit capacity to provide and/or coordinate services. As a result, community members often need to leave the community to access the needed health services. Coordinating the receipt of health services outside of communities impacts the timeliness of care received. By not having easily accessible services, the frequency with which services are accessed decreases and can therefore impact the degree of care required, and the continuity of care received. Similar concerns about continuity of care persist in communities due to the high rates of staff turnover among health professionals traveling to communities.11 11 National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health.

Opportunities for Cooperative Health Provision in Rural, Remote and Northern Aboriginal Communities. Government Affairs and Public Policy. The lack of integrated services negatively impacts the ability to have coordinated health care priorities at all levels of health care planning and delivery. Most project coordinators and almost half of FNIHB regional staff interviewed identified a lack of coordination of available services. This lack of coordination often stems from the multijurisdictional nature of First Nations and Inuit healthcare and the associated confusion among government organizations as to who is responsible f...
