Description:

Number of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 15 and over and whose smoking status has been recorded at the primary health-care service within the previous 24 months.

Computation description:

Count of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 15 and over and whose smoking status has been recorded within the previous 24 months at the primary health-care service.

‘Regular client’ refers to a client of an Australian Government Department of Health-funded primary health-care service (that is required to report against the Indigenous primary health care key performance indicators) who has an active medical record; that is, a client who has attended the Department of Health-funded primary health-care service at least 3 times in 2 years.

Results arising from measurements conducted outside of the service, that are known by the service, are included in the calculation of this indicator.

Operationalisation of smoking status:

Where an Indigenous regular client’s tobacco smoking status does not have an assessment date assigned within the Patient Information Record System (PIRS), smoking status as recorded in the PIRS should be treated as current (i.e. as having been updated within the previous 24 months).

Presented as a number.
