Abstract

Scant information is available in the health literature on Australian Indigenous adolescents with chronic conditions and disabilities. Little is known about how Indigenous adolescence differs from mainstream adolescence, or how Indigenous adolescents manage chronic conditions. Health services are encouraged to engage in information sharing with Indigenous clients and to develop a collaborative approach to chronic condition management as a way to improve outcomes.
