Scope:Help on this term

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health-care services data set specification (DSS) describes information from primary health-care services that received funding from the Australian Government through the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH).

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health-care centres are those that provide comprehensive health-care services that include (but are not limited to) medical, dental, nursing, psychiatric and psychological services.

Funded Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health-care services include the following:

  • health service delivery
  • chronic and communicable disease prevention
  • child and maternal health
  • Primary Health Care Access Program (PHCAP) services: a Commonwealth Government policy implemented in partnership with State/Territory Governments, the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector and the former Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission. PHCAP aims to provide funding for the expansion of primary health care services in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities in areas identified as having the highest relative need.
  • mental health
  • substance use.

The aggregate level collection supports information to be collected at the service provider organisation level.

The OATSIH Services Reporting (OSR) is a single questionnaire that incorporates 5 sections:

  • Part B: Primary Health Care
  • Part C: Standalone Substance Use (both residential and non-residential)
  • Part D: Bringing Them Home and Link Up Counsellors
