Exploring associations between health, morbidity and psychological wellbeing in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants of the 45 and up study

 

Overview

The 45 and up study will follow the health and ageing processes of 250,000 men and women from New South Wales who are aged 45 or older in the coming decades. This particular project aims to investigate the self-reported health, lifestyle behaviours, and general wellbeing of 45 and up study participants who identified as Australian Indigenous people.

The first part of the study will describe and compare socio-demographic, health, and lifestyle characteristics from Indigenous and non-Indigenous 45 and up participants. The second part will investigate high levels of psychological distress among Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants, and their relationship to a range of factors such as socioeconomic status, co-morbidity, disability, and lifestyle factors.

These insights will contribute to the understanding of risk profiles of Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants, and of the associations between physical disability and mental health within these groups.
