Stock-take and gap analysis of Indigenous drug prevention research

 

Overview

The aim of this project was to assist with the establishment of a culturally sound research agenda aimed at preventing problematic drug use among Koori people in Victoria. Hospital admissions related to drug treatment and rehabilitation programs were a key focus of the research. The conclusions reached were framed to assist the Victorian Premier's Drug Prevention Council in its role in promoting culturally appropriate research that contributes to preventing alcohol and other drug-related problems.

By developing a research agenda in collaboration with the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation and Onemda, Vichealth Koori Health Unit at the University of Melbourne, the project also provided a strong basis for research transfer and capacity building. The project was funded by the Victorian Department of Human Services, and research took place between June and December 2007.
