Summary
"It has been acknowledged that key drivers of the life expectancy gap include higher incidence of, and mortality from, cardiovascular disease (CVD), higher tobacco smoking rates, and disparities in the care and treatment of Indigenous hospital patients. Nationally, there has been a significant and much-needed focus on primary care and prevention, including a commitment to address smoking rates and improve chronic disease management. But there has been less emphasis on what happens when Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients get to hospital. CVD is the biggest killer of Indigenous people. They develop CVD and die from it at much higher rates than other Australians, and are three times as likely to suffer a coronary event, such as a heart attack. By improving intervention rates and addressing disparities in care, we can improve Indigenous patient health outcomes and life expectancy." -- Taken from Foreword page 1
