New Zealand dental therapists' beliefs regarding child maltreatment.
Conclusions and implications: Most NZ dental therapists believe they have an important role in child protection, yet their suspicions are frequently unreported. Dental therapists may benefit from appropriate support and clear advice from their employers when dealing with suspected cases of maltreatment.

Acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease in the Kimberley: using hospitalisation data to find cases and describe trends.
Abstract Objective: To describe the epidemiology of hospitalisations due to acute rheumatic fever (ARF) and rheumatic heart disease (RHD) in the Kimberley region of Western Australia (WA) and use these data to improve completeness of the WA RHD Register. Methods: Retrospective analysis of Kimberley regional hospitalisation data for hospitalisations coded as ARF/RHD from 01/07/2002 to 30/06/2012, with individual follow-up of those not on the register. Annual age-standardised hospitalisation rates were calculated to determine hospitalisation trend. Results: There were 250 admissions among 193 individuals. Of these, ...

Determinants of uptake of home modifications and exercise to prevent falls in community-dwelling older people.
Conclusion: More than one-quarter of the older population of NSW report having made modifications to their home and one-third increased exercise to prevent falls. There was a clear gradient of increased uptake of home modifications with increasing age, with the reverse trend for increased exercise. Implication: Although fall prevention initiatives are having an impact at the population level, targeted strategies for high-risk groups are still required.

Factors associated with dental caries experience and oral health status among New South Wales adolescents.
Conclusions: The oral health of 14- and 15-year-olds in NSW is influenced by social and dietary factors as well as access to fluoridated water supplies. There was also a strong relationship between self-rated oral health status with DMFT and with caries experience. Implications: The findings of this study will assist policy makers by highlighting the current caries risk factors that should be part of future health promotion programs.

The role of evidence, standards and education in rock fishing safety in New South Wales, Australia.
Conclusions: It is likely that a combination of evidence-based, standard-focused and education initiatives would be useful in improving rock fishing safety in NSW, provided that the impact of these initiatives were routinely evaluated.

Food and beverage intake in Australian children aged 12-16 months participating in the NOURISH and SAIDI studies.
CONCLUSIONS: The quality of dietary intake in this group of young children is highly variable. Most toddlers were consuming a diverse diet, though almost all ate discretionary items. The amount and type of meat/alternatives consumed was poor. IMPLICATIONS: Health professionals should advise parents to offer iron-rich foods, while limiting discretionary choices and use of formula at an age critical in the development of long-term food preferences.

CONCLUSIONS: The adapted instrument is accessible to a cross-section of Indigenous Australians and has demonstrated properties of reliability and validity. An extended trial is needed to test the application of the instrument to a broader Indigenous audience and to further explore and confirm psychometric properties of the adapted instrument.

CONCLUSIONS: Service-level strategies were necessary to achieving cultural respect. These strategies have the potential to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and wellbeing. IMPLICATIONS: Primary health care's social determinants of health mandate, the community controlled model, and the development of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce need to be supported to ensure a culturally respectful health system.

Assessing HPV vaccine coverage in Australia by geography and socioeconomic status: are we protecting those most at risk?
Conclusion: Notifications of HPV vaccine doses delivered to females aged 12-13 through schools suggest a high and relatively equal uptake across socioeconomic groups. Females in remote regions have the highest uptake of dose 1 but are least likely to complete the course. This may be due to particular challenges in vaccine delivery to residents of remote areas.

Gender differences in alcohol consumption among middle-aged and older adults in Australia, the United States and Korea.
Conclusions: Gender-role expectations differ between countries and may influence both the levels at which older adults consume alcohol and the ways in which at-risk drinking is associated with socioeconomic factors. Implications: Heavy alcohol use in middle-aged and older adults is a cause for concern. Health promotion strategies should target older age groups and consider the ways in which gender, marital status and education influence norms and opportunities for risky alcohol use.

Variation in health inequalities according to measures of socioeconomic status and age.
Conclusions: The magnitude of socioeconomic inequality in health varies substantially according to the type of SES measure used and age. Income is the most sensitive measure. Implications: Researchers and policy makers should be aware of the extent to which SEIFA-based estimates underestimate the magnitude of health inequality compared to individual-level measures, especially in younger age groups.

Geographic analysis of infant mortality in New Zealand, 1995-2008: an ethnicity perspective.
Conclusions: Infant mortality patterns are geographically similar for both Māori and Non-Māori. However, there are differences geographically between the two populations after accounting for deprivation. Implications: Health services that can affect infant mortality should be aware of the geographical differences across NZ. Deprivation is an important factor in explaining infant mortality rates and policies that ameliorate its effects should be pursued, as it is the major determinant of the geographical pattern of infant mortality in NZ.

High folate levels in Aboriginal children after subsidised fruit and vegetables and mandatory folic acid fortification.
Conclusions: RBC folate levels increased among these disadvantaged Aboriginal children following mandatory folic acid fortification and participation in a subsidised F&V program. Even before mandatory folic acid fortification, none of these children had low RBC folate. Implications: The effect on health of mandatory fortification of foods with folate is not clear, hence, ongoing population-based monitoring of folate levels to assess the impact of mandatory folic acid fortification is important.

Australia's national Privacy Act 1988 has had a long history of inconsistent practices by state and territory government departments and ethical review committees.
