Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
Follow-up services were delivered by the NT Department of Health (NT DoH) and Aboriginal medical services.
The Stronger Futures in the Northern Territory Children's Health Checks: Ear, nose and throat (ENT) services DSS, 2012 is based on version 4 of the ENT Specialist Consultation form which was implemented in April 2012. The form contains questions asked of the healthcare professionals who delivered these services. Earlier versions of the form were in place between July 2009 and March 2012. Although the various versions of the forms have most of the same questions, there are also some key differences, such as:
The AIHW only receives confidentialised unit record level information on those children for which consent for data provision to AIHW has been obtained.
|Implementation start date:||01/04/2012|
The CHCI (CtG) funded ENT services began in early 2008 as a part of the CHC follow-up services, although the data on these services were not collected at the time. A limited amount of data was derived from the CHC Chart Review database prior to July 2009.
