Indigenous health outcomes patient evaluation (IHOPE)
This University of Western Sydney (UWS) project is investigating how hospitals and neighbourhoods contribute to disparities in health outcomes for Indigenous people in New South Wales. By analysing Indigenous and non-Indigenous hospital data, the project is determining whether there are health disparities at the hospital or neighbourhood level that could be targeted with specific interventions.
The project examines hospital admissions and outcomes for:
- ischaemic heart disease
- surgery for otitis media among children
- transport injury
- cataract procedures.
It uses linked population datasets (NSW Admitted Patient Data Collection and NSW mortality data) and multilevel modelling techniques.
