This publication presents results of the 2014-15 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social survey (NATSISS). The survey was conducted from September 2014 to June 2015 with a sample of 11,178 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in private dwellings across Australia. The NATSISS is a six-yearly multidimensional social survey which provides broad, self-reported information across key areas of social interest for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, primarily at the national level and by remoteness. Topics include language and culture, social networks and support, health, education, work, access to services, crime and justice, housing and financial stress. Supporting summary tables provide an overview for different population groups and selected themes.

Engaging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in prostate cancer health care programs.

Sydney: Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia

The aim of this report is to engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health experts to discuss current health issues and raise awareness about prostate cancer among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men.

The report describes the known prostate cancer statistics for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men in the context of those for the general population, and the evidence on factors influencing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health outcomes. The report then examines the barriers to improving awareness of prostate cancer as a health issue amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and their communities, and presents culturally appropriate strategies for overcoming them.

Utilising appropriate methodology and social work practices: consulting with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males.

In: Fejo-King C, Poona J, eds. Emerging from the margins: First Australians’ perspectives of social work. Canberra: Magpie Goose: 87-116

Social work theories and practices are based on the principles of Western non-Indigenous theories and ideas. The Australian Association of Social Workers' recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Indigenous people of Australia. They acknowledge the historical disadvantage suffered by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the implications of this for social work practice.

To understand the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males one has to accept and understand that the historical, cultural, physiological, psychosocial, economic, environmental and political context faced by males. The methodology needs to incorporate the specific cultural understandings and priorities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males. In-depth consultation and negotiation with the target communities ensured that their needs are understood.

The West Australian Indigenous storybook: celebrating and sharing good news stories: the Gascoyne edition.

6th ed. Perth: Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA

This is the sixth edition of the West Australian Indigenous storybook, showcasing the achievements of Indigenous communities and people across Western Australia (WA). The stories in this edition are from the Gascoyne region of WA, including Carnarvon and the Shark Bay area. This edition features stories about a men's group, youth services, an environmental health clean-up, dance and jewellery-making workshops, an eco-tourism initiative and a community group. It also includes memoirs from two local Elders about growing up in the area.

The purpose of the six storybooks in the series is to showcase community-based programs that could be replicated in other communities to improve or influence the social determinants of health. Many stories highlight that local solutions are often the most effective. The storybooks share both the successes and failures of the programs and embrace a holistic view of health.

Australia’s health 2014: the 14th biennial health report of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

Australia's health 2014 was released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare as the fourtenth edition of its biennial national health report. The report shows that Australia is one of the healthiest nations in the world, with most Australians generally have good health and access to a range of good health care services, but Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples continue to have much poorer health than the general population.

Health information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is included in various sections of the report but particularly in chapter 7 which compiles information about demographic profiles, health status, disability rates and service use. The section highlights that Indigenous Australians are continuing to die at much younger ages than non-Indigenous Australians. Indigenous Australians also continue to have a greater disease burden, higher rates of disability and a lower quality of life than other Australians. The section concludes with information on behaviours and health risk factors that shape the health status of Indigenous peoples such as tobacco use, alcohol misuse and illicit drug use.

The health of Australia's males: a focus on five population groups.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This report examines the health of Australian males, in particular five population groups including men of different characteristics relating to: Indigenous status, remoteness, socioeconomic disadvantage, region of birth, and age.

Detailed information is provided on the five population groups including:

  • demographic and socioeconomic characteristics
  • lifestyle factors
  • health status
  • health service use.

Some of the key findings in relation to Indigenous males were:

  • poorer health than overall population
  • lower life expectancy
  • higher rates of alcohol and other drug use
  • higher rates of chronic disease including diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of cancer
  • higher rates of other health conditions uncommon in the general population including acute rheumatic fever, scabies and trachoma
  • higher rates of hospitalisation.

This report is the second in a series about male health in Australia, the report was the first to be funded under the National male health policy launched in 2010. It recognises the distinct health needs of males and the concerns related to their biology and roles in society. These needs being illustrated by the different rates of injury, illness and mortality, attitudes towards health and risks, and the way each group uses health services.

Indigenous Australian health and cultures : an introduction for health professionals.

Frenchs Forest, N.S.W.: Pearson Australia

This edited volume has been written by a diverse group of health professionals, the majority of whom are Indigenous Australians. A life cycle approach has been adopted, with chapters focusing on pregnancy and birthing through to the care and responsibilities of the elderly. These are bookended by the first chapter on 'Culture, history and health' which contextualises the subsequent content and the final chapter on future directions following the National apology.

The book includes the following chapters:

  • 'Culture, history and health' by Sherry Saggers, Maggie Walter, Dennis Gray
  • 'New life: conception, pregnancy and birthing' by Terry Dunbar and Linda Ford
  • 'Aboriginal infants and young children: the challenges ahead' by Heather D'Antoine and Dawn Bessarab
  • 'Aboriginal youth: challenges, strengths and opportunities' by David Vicary and Tine Hoult
  • 'The health, social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal women' by Pat Dudgeon and Roz Walker
  • 'Lives of Indigenous Australian men' by Mick Adams and Brian McCoy
  • 'The elderly: care and responsibilities' by Sandra Thompson, Rosemary van den Berg and Kate Smith
  • 'Loss, grief, bad luck and sorry business' by Jane Ulrik, Denise Foster and Vanessa Davis
  • 'The National apology: a new pathway forward?' By Shaun Ewen and Brian McCoy
