  4. 4. Indigenous Health <br />The Indigenous Health Program provides a culturally appropriate range of health related services to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community of the Sunshine Coast within the Sunshine Coast – Health Service District.<br /> <br />They undertake liaison and advocacy roles which provide a link for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to a range of government and non-government services. In particular, there are formal partnership Agreements with the North Coast Aboriginal Corporation for Community Health and the Division of General Practice, to enhance collaborative and effective service delivery of Indigenous Health Programs.<br /> <br />
  5. 5. Project<br />Name – Indigenous Breast Screening<br />Background - : Indigenous Health, in conjunction with Breast Screen Queensland and North Coast Aboriginal Corporation for Community Health, has been breast screening Indigenous women on the Sunshine Coast for the past three years. This process is relatively new for the Indigenous population as they have only started to be screened within the last ten years, unlike the Non-Indigenous population who have been screened for over twenty years. <br />
  6. 6. Continued...<br />Because of the recency of screening Indigenous women, a lot are still unsure of the procedure and find it intrusive and embarrassing. However, this program aims to dissolve these barriers and provide Indigenous women with the same level of primary care that the Non-Indigenous population receive, and to educate these women about the importance of early detection.<br />
