Collection and usage attributes
|Population group age from:|
15 years and over.
Proportion of Indigenous regular clients aged 15 and over who had their alcohol consumption status recorded at the primary health care organisation within the previous 24 months.
Presented as a percentage.
Alcohol consumption status has been recorded if the health service has either:
a) a record of whether the client consumes alcohol or
b) a record specifying the amount and frequency of the client's alcohol consumption.
Results arising from measurements conducted outside of the organisation that are known by the organisation are included in the calculation of this indicator.
Operationalisation of alcohol consumption status:
Where an Indigenous regular client’s alcohol consumption status does not have an assessment date assigned within the Clinical Information System (CIS), alcohol consumption status as recorded in the CIS should be treated as current (i.e. as having been updated within the previous 24 months).
