The price of healthy and unhealthy foods in Australian primary school canteens.
CONCLUSION: Current pricing may not encourage the purchasing of healthy main-meal items by and for students. Further investigation of pricing strategies that enhance the public health benefit of existing school canteen policies and practices are warranted. Implications for Public Health: Providing support to canteen managers regarding healthy canteen policies may have a positive impact on public health nutrition.

Who is at risk of chronic disease? Associations between risk profiles of physical activity, sitting and cardio-metabolic disease in Australian adults.
CONCLUSIONS: The findings highlight the importance of both sufficient physical activity and low sitting time for cardio-metabolic health. Implications for Public Health: Primary prevention focus should consider physical activity and reduced sitting time as well as provision of relevant advice for cardio-metabolic health.

The impact of the Canterbury earthquakes on successful school leaving for adolescents.
CONCLUSION: Although there may have been negative effects for a minority, the possibility of post-disaster growth and resilience being the norm for the majority meant that negative effects on school leaving were not observed following the earthquakes. A range of post-disaster responses may have mitigated adverse effects on the adolescent population. Implications for Public Health: Overall long-term negative effects are unlikely for the affected adolescent population. The results also indicate that similar populations exposed to disasters in other settings are likely to do well in the presence of a comprehensive post-disast...

Outcomes of using telehealth for the provision of healthcare to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people: a systematic review.
CONCLUSION: Telehealth is used to address poor accessibility to health services and for targeted screening programs for at risk populations. Reported outcomes from existing services demonstrate the potential of telehealth for health service delivery for Indigenous Australians. Confidence in the findings of this review is reduced by the predominance of descriptive studies and small sample sizes in many of the included articles. IMPLICATIONS: Telehealth models of care facilitated through partnerships between Aboriginal community-controlled health services and public hospitals may improve both patient outcomes and access...

Individual, social and environmental factors and their association with weight in rural-dwelling women.

Theory that explains an Aboriginal perspective of learning to understand and manage diabetes.
CONCLUSIONS: Patient experience of a model of care alone is not what influences understanding and management of diabetes in Aboriginal people. Implications for Public Health: Health service improvements should focus on understanding past experiences of Aboriginal patients, improving interactions with health services and supporting holistic family centred models of care. Focusing on just the model of care in absence of other improvements is unlikely to deliver health benefits to Aboriginal people.

Mandatory responses to public health and safety recommendations issued by coroners: a content analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that the founding objectives of Victoria's innovative mandatory response regime are being compromised by the opacity of many response letters.

Conclusions and Implications for Public Health: More methodologically rigorous evaluations of interventions targeting multiple risk factors among high-risk young people are required, especially for those delivered in community settings. Four key areas for improvement are: i) more precisely defining the risk factors experienced by high-risk young people; ii) achieving greater consistency across interventions; iii) standardising outcome measures; and iv) conducting economic analyses.

Impact of dental National Partnership Agreements on public dental service waiting lists in Queensland.
CONCLUSIONS: While the 'blitz' was successful in reducing waiting list numbers, this was not sustained. The deferred federal funding to states/territories for dental services may have worsened the situation. IMPLICATIONS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH: While an injection of funds to reduce the waiting list is important and has had an impact, to adequately address oral health will require not just continuing funding, but also a shift away from the current curative 'downstream' approach towards a health-promotive 'upstream' approach. This will reduce not only the cost of treatment, but also waiting lists. PMID: 27625069 [PubMed...
