The oral health care experiences of NSW Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services.
Conclusion: NSW ACCHSs are important but under-acknowledged providers of a range of oral health services to Aboriginal communities and are well placed to provide this care as part of their comprehensive primary health care model. Implications: ACCHS roles in improving Aboriginal oral health would be strengthened by greater acknowledgement of their contributions and expertise and the development of transparent, long-term funding policies that respond to community need.

An outbreak of influenza A (H1N1) virus in a remote Aboriginal community post-pandemic: implications for pandemic planning and health service policy.
Conclusions: This is the first description of the effects of a novel influenza strain on a remote Australian Aboriginal community. Isolation and low vaccination are likely explanations for the apparent naivety to H1N1. Implications: There may be other remote communities at risk of H1N1. High attack and complication rates confirm that Aboriginal Australians should be prioritised in pandemic planning.

Total and domain-specific sitting time among employees in desk-based work settings in Australia.
Abstract Objective: To describe the total and domain-specific daily sitting time among a sample of Australian office-based employees. Methods: In April 2010, paper-based surveys were provided to desk-based employees (n=801) in Victoria, Australia. Total daily and domain-specific (work, leisure-time and transport-related) sitting time (minutes/day) were assessed by validated questionnaires. Differences in sitting time were examined across socio-demographic (age, sex, occupational status) and lifestyle characteristics (physical activity levels, body mass index [BMI]) using multiple linear regression analyses.

Aboriginal health: agreement between general practitioners and patients on their health risk status and screening history.
Conclusions and implications: This study suggests that for effective preventive care, using self-report for some health risks may be reliable, but less so for screening history.

Conclusion and implications: The positive contribution of community sports clubs to the community may be diminished by specific inadequate alcohol management practices.

The use of, and attitudes towards, electronic cigarettes and self-reported exposure to advertising and the product in general.
Conclusions: The rate of ever-use suggested that smokers and recent quitters are receptive to e-cigarettes and that they were available to many of them to try. Exposure to e-cigarette advertising or the product in general was not uncommon. Future studies should continue monitor the use of e-cigarettes and investigate the impact of the exposure to people's attitudes towards the product and their subsequent use of e-cigarettes.

Factors shaping intersectoral action in primary health care services.
Conclusions: While intersectoral action is an effective way for primary health care services to address social determinants of health, commitment to social justice and to adopting a social view of health are constrained by a broader health service now largely reinforcing a biomedical model. Implications: Effective organisational practices and policies are needed to address social determinants of health in primary health care and to provide a supportive context for workers engaging in intersectoral action.

Cross-promotional alcohol discounting in Australia's grocery sector: a barrier to initiatives to curb excessive alcohol consumption?
Conclusions: These results appear to be consistent with claims that major supermarket chains are using alcohol discounts as loss leaders to entice new consumers. Implications: These strategies are antithetical to public health strategies aimed at reducing excessive alcohol consumption. Further examination of the impact of major retailers on public health initiatives is warranted, particularly in light of increasing retailer concentration.

Conclusions: Healthcare providers value and are satisfied with the service provided by the VSR. Patients can play a valuable role in communicating with their health providers.

Smoke-free outdoor areas: supporting local government to introduce tobacco control policies.
Conclusion and implications: In the absence of state or federal legislation, local government or councils may respond to community expectations for smoke-free outdoor areas by introducing policy. Advocacy and support from non-government health organisations can increase the likelihood of this occurring and address barriers facing councils, with rural councils most likely to benefit from such support. Interest from councils can influence the adoption of state-wide smoke-free outdoor areas legislation.

Factors that drive the gap in diabetes rates between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in non-remote NSW.
Conclusions: Differences in BMI and education appear to be driving the diabetes gap, together with onset at younger ages in the Aboriginal population. Psychological distress, indicated by removal of relatives, may contribute to increased risk of diabetes in the Aboriginal population. Implications: The results imply that improved nutrition and exercise, capacity to access and act upon health care information and early intervention are required to reduce the diabetes gap. Current strategies appear to be appropriately aligned with the evidence; however, further research is required to determine whether implementation methods ...
