Announcing the Australian Health Review Editorial Board

AS FORESHADOWED IN OUR LAST ISSUE, an Editorial Board has been established by the Australian Healthcare Association, with the task of setting policy directions and safeguarding the independence of the journal (see page 256 for the list of the founding members). We look forward to working with the new Board and extend a warm welcome to the members.

Termination of pregnancy

WITH THE OBJECTIVE of shedding some new light on the abortion debate (without the expected discussion of rights) we open this issue with three papers on aspects of termination of pregnancy of concern to health care providers. We aim to do so from a position of respect for the private moral views of all our readers - hopefully providing some new information on termination of pregnancy of interest to Australian decision makers. Ellwood (page J 39) sketches the picture in provision of abortion services after 20 weeks ("late abortion") in Australia. Mitchell and Dyson (page 135) summarise what is known about the role of sexuality education in preventing unplanned and unwanted pregnancies, and Petersen (page 142) reviews the regulation of abortion services through the various crime statutes and common law judgements in Australian jurisdictions.

THIS ISSUE presents more local evidence for policy making in health systems and health care. O'Connell and Ostaszkiewicz (page 146) call for action on a strategy to address the looming health care issues for our ageing population and Cordato, Saha and Price summarise the evidence for geriatric interventions (page 151). The need for a planned approach to developing the role of nurses in general practice is presented by Halcomb et al (page 156). Walker and colleagues (page 167) model the likely future of private health insurance coverage, while Manning highlights the approaching end of reductions in the average length of hospital stays due to conversion of overnight to same day admissions (page 178).

Rose and Harris (page 185) provide advice for mental health providers about engaging with employment programs, and Eagar and colleagues (page 189) review the lessons from the National Mental Health Integration Program.

We are pleased to present a significant collection of papers about the current and future health care workforce. Duckett (page 201) challenges the providers of education as well as employers to take on fundamental reform of professional roles. Mickan (page 211) summarises the literature on the effectiveness of teams, while Boucher identifies six archetypes among clinician-managers from the born manager to the stuck manager (page 218).
