South Australian Childhood Rheumatic Heart Disease screening project (SACRHD) follow-up study
Investigators: Alex Brown, Gavin Wheaton, Ross Roberts-Thomson, Sara Noonan.
Aims: The aim of the study is to inform future RHD screening projects about the experiences of, and impacts on, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families in South Australia, following an unexpected diagnosis of RHD or borderline RHD. A qualitative discussion guide has been developed to guide discussion with families. This study is an extension of the SACRHD screening project which was conducted in schools across South Australia in 2016 to determine the prevalence of RHD in South Australia.
