This collection of four short online videos is designed to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment for Aboriginal people. They were developed through collaboration between the NSW Ministry of Health and partners including the Better Cardiac Care Aboriginal Advisory Group, the Heart Foundation, NSW Ambulance and clinicians from Aboriginal Medical Services.
In the videos, well-known Aboriginal actors enact common scenarios that could be experienced by any family, to convey how to recognise and respond to heart attacks, prevent heart disease, and recover effectively. The videos also talk about treatment and monitoring of rheumatic heart disease.
