Improving the accessibility of health services in urban and regional settings for Indigenous people.

Canberra: Closing the Gap Clearinghouse

This report discusses ways to improve the accessibility of metropolitan, urban and regional health services for Indigenous Australians.

Topics addressed in the report include:

  • barriers and facilitators to adequate health service access
  • differing concepts of health and treatment of illnesses
  • reluctance to engage due to colonial history and past injustices
  • language and communication barriers
  • strategies for providing culturally competent health services.

The report draws on approximately 30 research studies as well as documented practice experience.

Drinking in the suburbs: the experiences of Aboriginal young people.

Perth, WA: National Drug Research Institute

This project focused on the experiences of Aboriginal young people with and around alcohol in the south and south-east metropolitan area of Perth. The purpose of the study was to provide a comprehensive picture of this group's experiences in order for services to better target future health promotion for Aboriginal young people. Young people were asked about their: level of alcohol consumption; experience of alcohol-related harms; contexts of drinking; knowledge of health effects; memory of health promotion messages; and ideas for effective health promotion.

Findings indicate that many of the young people are consuming alcohol from an early age and at levels exceeding recommended guidelines for long-term harm. The majority had found themselves in trouble with authority and a third had been in detention, primarily related to alcohol. The young people showed low knowledge of chronic health effects associated with alcohol and little memory of existing health promotion campaigns.

The results of this study highlight the need for a youth-friendly approach to health promotion, specifically designed for, conducted by and in consultation with young Aboriginal people.

Adelaide: Flinders University

This report looks at the Adelaide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (AATSIH) study and aims to contribute to filling the gap in literature and knowledge about the health and everyday life experience of urban Indigenous peoples. The report aims to improve Indigenous urban health and empower Aboriginal individuals and their communities, by setting out the necessary changes to improve health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples for the long term. The report highlights that although Aboriginal people feel positive about their neighbourhood and community life, racism is a common experience. The findings suggest that improved access to education, employment and housing is needed to enhance the everyday life experience of urban Indigenous people.
