Abstract

This report details the findings from the Winnunga Nimmityjah Aboriginal Health Service study into a best practice model of holistic health service delivery for Aboriginal inmates at the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Alexander Maconochie Centre. This report outlines a number of recommendations that resulted from the study, including:

  • incorporating this holistic health care model into the ACT Health prison services delivered at the Alexander Maconochie Centre
  • establishing a prisoner health communication network between Winnunga and other Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal organisations
  • establishing a monitoring and evaluation program for the implementation of the Winnunga Holistic Health Care Prison Model at the Alexander Maconochie Centre assessing process, impact and outcomes of the Model
  • that the Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health (CRCAH) transfer this new knowledge and understanding to the health and justice systems in other jurisdictions throughout Australia
  • that further studies be undertaken to help overcome the current lack of an evidence base for Aboriginal prison-related issues in the ACT and Australia.
