Culturally appropriate bowel screening resources
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
SA Health is undertaking various initiatives to decrease cancer mortality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in South Australia. Targeted resources have been developed, including gender specific bowel screening kit instructions and flipcharts about colonoscopy:
- How to do the test for Aboriginal women (PDF 8MB)
- How to do the test for Aboriginal men (PDF 9MB)
- What happens next? If your bowel screening result is positive for Aboriginal women (PDF 9MB)
- What happens next? If your bowel screening result is positive for Aboriginal men (PDF 9MB).
In addition SA Health has commissioned two South Australian Artists, Alan Sumner and Mel Agius to develop Aboriginal artwork (PDF 3MB) which depicts the story of cancer screening.
Culturally and linguistically diverse
Posters, brochures, flyers and factsheets about the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program in various languages can be found on the Cancer Screening website.
