Australian Family Physician
Volume 43 Issue 1/2 (Jan/Feb 2014)

Abstract: In the BEACH program between April 2008 and March 2013, general practitioners (GPs) recorded details of 7380 patient encounters with people who identified themselves as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, which accounted for 1.5% of all BEACH encounters. The rates at which type 2 diabetes and asthma were managed at encounters with patients who identified as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were compared with those of other patients.
