POTENTIALLY AVOIDABLE MORTALITY
A potentially avoidable death is one that could have theoretically been avoided given an understanding of causation, the adoption of available disease prevention initiatives and the use of available health care, for persons aged under 75 years. All causes of death that make up a potentially avoidable death are categorised into either a treatable or preventable category. For a full list of the causes of death that make up potentially avoidable deaths, see Appendix 3. The age-standardised avoidable death rate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians was 522.7, almost four times higher than non-Indigenous Australians (135.0).
