About this resource

The need for better information and resources

Injury is a major contributor to the poor health of Indigenous people, with the incidence, and mortality and hospitalisation rates higher than those for the non-Indigenous population.

Injury is largely preventable, so clearly much can be done to reduce the frequency and impact of injury among Indigenous people. The development of appropriate strategies and programs at national, state and regional levels requires access to accurate, up-to-date information and resources.

This web resource aims at increasing the access of people involved in addressing the prevention and management of injury among Indigenous peoples to accurate, up-to-date information and resources.

Content of the Indigenous injury web resource

In aiming to provide access to good quality information and resources for people involved in addressing injury among Indigenous peoples, this web resource will include: reviews; guidelines; resources; programs, projects and lessons; policies and strategies; publications; and links. It will also include information about research activity, organisations and agencies and individuals working in the field.

Development of the Indigenous injury web resource

Development of this web resource has been made possible with funds provided to the HealthInfoNet by the Australian Department of Health and Ageing's Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) - both through our core agreement and special funds made available in 2006-07 for re-development of the resource into its current form.

The HealthInfoNet is currently exploring options for adding the capacity for people involved in the area to actively share their knowledge, information and experiences through development of a yarning place (an electronic network) that encourages electronic yarning and networking among people working across Australia addressing the prevention and management of injury among Indigenous peoples.
