Danila Dilba Health Service's submission to the Senate Inquiry into effective approaches to prevention and diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
Our submission focusses on the benefits of delivering a comprehensive primary health care model, integrating prevention, education, early assessment and intervention services into primary health care. Our experience demonstrates that Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services are best placed to delivery these services -- leveraging off existing relationships of trust in order to ensure continuity of care and support throughout the client journey. A holistic approach to FASD prevention, assessment and treatment, delivered by Aboriginal community controlled health services, is likely to produce the best outcomes for Aboriginal children and families.
