Blood pressure resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

These resources have been developed in partnership with The Heart Foundation, the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation and Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia.

As well as a patient brochure and fact sheets on blood pressure lowering medicines for the client and their families to take home, an educational flip chart has been developed to help Aboriginal Health Workers and health professionals deliver patient education.

For Aboriginal Health Workers and health professionals, multiple hard copies can be ordered for use in training or with clients. Click here to order multiple copies.
