Overview of Australian Indigenous health status, 2014.

Perth, WA: Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet

This report provides recent information on:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations
  • the context of Indigenous health
  • various measures of population health status
  • selected health conditions
  • health risk and protective factors.

This Overview draws on statistics and other published and unpublished materials to provide up-to-date, detailed information about the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in 2014. It highlights a number of improvements in certain aspects of Indigenous health, but underlines that ongoing work is needed to 'close the gap' in health status between Indigenous and other Australians.

Medication treatment options for amphetamine-type stimulant users.

Canberra: Australian National Council on Drugs

This publication reviews the evidence for pharmacotherapies in the treatment of people with a dependence on amphetamine type stimulants (ATS). It provides a systematic review of medicines which have the potential to be used as a part of a comprehensive treatment plan as well as medicines that are unsafe to use with people who are dependent on ATS.

The review is designed to help guide discussion related to development of clinical guidelines and identify future research efforts.
