Users of this web resource are warned that it may contain images and/or references to deceased people,
which could cause distress or sadness particularly for some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The resource may also contain words and descriptions that could be culturally sensitive and which might not normally
be used in public or community contexts. For example, some information may be considered appropriate for viewing
only by men or only by women. The HealthInfoNet respects such culturally sensitive issues, but,
for technical reasons, it has not been possible to provide materials in a way that prevents access by a person of the other gender.
Users are asked to respect this cultural protocol.
