Our core funding only enables us to address Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health nationally, and does not allow us to comprehensively consolidate this information at state, territory or regional level. Information relating to Indigenous health in Queensland has been collected as a part of our national focus.

Indigenous homelessness in regional Australia.

Brisbane: Institute for Social Science Research, the University of Queensland

This is the final report of a series of six research reports prepared for the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) over the last two years on Indigenous homelessness in regional Australia.

The overall aim of the research was to assess the appropriateness and effectiveness of regional service responses in responding to Indigenous homelessness. The research examined Indigenous homelessness in Australian regional cities and explored a range of service responses that have been developed for homeless and public-place dwelling Indigenous people in selected regional centres.

This report integrates and summarises all five of the earlier reports and discusses the policy, program and practice implications of the findings. The case studies include:

  • the Jimaylya Topsy Harry (homeless) Centre in Mt Isa, Queensland
  • a women's refuge in Tennant Creek, Northern Territory
  • a comparative study of cross-agency approaches to Aboriginal homelessness services in the Mid-west region of Western Australia.

Cape York welfare reform: evaluation 2012.

Canberra: Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs

The Cape York welfare reform (CYWR) was established to address deteriorating social and economic conditions in Cape York Indigenous communities. It was trialled in the four communities of Aurukun, Coen, Hope Vale and Mossman Gorge. The policy reform focused on initiatives in the areas of social responsibility, education, economic opportunity, and housing with the objectives of rebuilding social norms, re-establishing Indigenous authority, increased involvement in the real economy, and moving community members and their families away from social housing into their own homes. This report is the final evaluation of the CYWR. The framework for the evaluation included the following questions:

  • was the trial implemented as agreed
  • did social norms and behaviours change as intended
  • has governance and service delivery supported these intended changes.

This report describes how the reforms were implemented, the timelines, what was not implemented, and the impact of the CYWR on the communities participating in the trial.

Australian trachoma surveillance report 2012.

Sydney: The Kirby Institute, University of New South Wales

This report contains trachoma screening and management data for 2012 from the Northern Territory (NT), South Australia (SA), Western Australia (WA) and Queensland (Qld). A total of 195 (96%) of 204 designated at-risk communities were screened for trachoma during 2012, and data were analysed by region.

Children from 0-14 years were assessed for clean faces and active trachoma and adults aged 40 years and older were screened for trichiasis. Health promotion activities were also recorded.

Important findings from this report include:

  • an increase in screening coverage of communities in WA, SA and NT
  • a decrease in the national prevalence of trachoma in the 5-9 year age group, from 7% in 2011 to 4% in 2012
  • no active trachoma was detected in Queensland.

Trachoma surveillance and management has been undertaken since 2006 guided by the Communicable Disease Network of Australia (CDNA) Guidelines for the public management of trachoma in Australia 2006.

This report has been prepared as part of the Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government (ACELG) Rural-remote and Indigenous local government program. In 2011, ACELG released a report which found that the current demands and expectations placed on rural-remote and Indigenous local government councils could not be maintained, especially if they continued to grow unrestrained. The current report focuses on:

  • providing a profile of rural-remote and Indigenous councils from Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland, and identifying factors that impact on local capacity
  • a review of background information from past research and inquiries to identify federal, state and community expectations and issues from discussions with these stakeholders
  • the identification of further actions and research which could contribute to the objectives of ACELG.

Sad news, sorry business: guidelines for caring for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through death and dying.

Brisbane: Queensland Health

This document provides general guidance for carers of Indigenous Australian people faced with death.
The guidelines take into account that for many Indigenous people, the times before death, of death and following death, are subject to a number of customary practices.

The first part of these guidelines covers cultural competence for health workers, including verbal and body language, building rapport, and the roles of Indigenous hospital liaison officers and Indigenous health workers.

The second part of these guidelines covers caring for Indigenous patients and their families during the patient's final stages of life. Topics are:

  • diagnosis and information
  • the gathering: preparation for death
  • time of death
  • sad news, sorry business: time after death
  • postponing the burial
  • financial barriers
  • traumatic or sudden death
  • open disclosure
  • coronial investigations
  • resource list.

The guidelines are intended for Queensland Health staff, but may be a useful resource for workers in other parts of Australia. The guidelines acknowledge that customary practices about death vary for different groups of Indigenous people, and that any document can provide general guidance only.

"Black engagement" Practical tips on how to engage with the Mt Isa Indigenous community (2011)

Duffy G, Woolley T, Ross S

This two-page colour pamphlet provides rural placement students and health practitioners with practical tips about how to engage respectfully with Indigenous patients and colleagues in Mount Isa, Queensland. The tips in the pamphlet include:

  • do understand cultural time frames (Murri time) and be prepared to be flexible
  • do wear appropriate clothing
  • don't use inappropriate language (e.g. too much jargon or 'big words')
  • don't speak down or be condescending
  • don't make promises you can't keep.

The pamphlet was produced by the School of Medicine and Dentistry at James Cook University (JCU), in collaboration with the Mount Isa Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Reference Group (MIATSIRG). The aim of the MIATSIRG is to support JCU in delivering their services to Indigenous communities in a culturally appropriate manner, and to improve how JCU engages with Indigenous communities. Some of the general information in the pamphlet may be useful for health practitioners working in Indigenous settings outside of Mount Isa.

This report presents research undertaken by Queensland Health on the blood lead levels of children between one and four years of age living in Mount Isa, Queensland. It is a follow up study to one completed in 2007. The aim of the current study was to continue the monitoring of blood lead levels in this age group. The results revealed a significant decline between study surveys, however for Indigenous children, on average, they have higher blood lead levels. The report discusses the implications of the results.

Police diversion of young offenders and Indigenous over-representation.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Criminology

This report describes the findings of a study into the incidence, nature, and outcome of contact with the juvenile justive system, for a cohort of 8,236 young people aged 10 to 16 years in Queensland between 2000 and 2007. The study was designed to assess whether greater use of diversionary measures, as opposed to formal sanctions, would reduce over-representation of Indigenous juveniles within the juvenile justice system. The study comprised three primary research topics: the amount/extent of contact with the juvenile justice system; processes used; and the impact of police diversion on further contact with the juvenile justice system. The study's findings indicate that Indigenous juveniles come into contact with police earlier, at a more frequent rate and are less likely to be diverted to informal measures than non-Indigenous juveniles.

Building bridges: learning from the experts: building bridges to implement successful life promotion and suicide prevention expertise across Aboriginal communities.

Cairns, QLD: Centre for Rural & Remote Mental Health Queensland

This report describes the implementation and findings of a community based suicide prevention initiative in several Queensland Indigenous communities. The project used the knowledge and experience of the Indigenous community in Yarrabah as a model for other communities for the establishment of effective and sustainable community based approaches to build resilience, reduce suicide risk exposure and reduce self-harm. Through knowledge sharing, the skills, knowledge and experience of each community was strengthened.

The report documents the implementation of this project and discusses the various challenges encountered. This may have valuable implications for future Indigenous community based suicide prevention programs using an empowerment approach.

Protocols for the delivery of social and emotional well being and mental health services in Indigenous communities: guidelines for health workers, clinicians, consumers and carers.

Cairns, QLD: Australian Integrated Mental Health Initiative, Queensland Health

This manual was written to provide health professionals with a set of rules for the delivery of mental health services in Indigenous communities in Queensland. The information comes from evidence-based research and addresses the lack of resources available to health professionals on best practice standards for providing mental health care to Indigenous clients.

The manual consists of two parts:

  • Part 1 focuses on understanding and supporting social and emotional wellbeing and mental health with Indigenous peoples, covering topics such as:
    • an overview on mental health
    • culturally appropriate mental health assessment and treatment for Indigenous people
    • new approaches to service delivery
    • practitioner tools and mental health care
  • Part 2 provides guidelines for supporting people with the following mental illnesses:
    • depression
    • anxiety disorders
    • self-harming behaviours
    • schizophrenia and bipolar disorders.

Brisbane: Queensland Health

This publication outlines the plan for a strategic framework to improve the environmental health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland. The plan builds on the progress made by previous strategies and recognises six areas to enhance environmental health outcomes for communities, including, to:

  • develop, implement and build on successful environmental health programs
  • engage with government and non-government community health and affiliated services
  • promote, develop and support the environmental health workforce
  • reinforce joint ventures across government and non-government organisations to support investment in environmental health services
  • promote environmental health programs and their success
  • develop and employ dependable reporting procedures to assist in the monitoring and evaluation of programs

The plan supports the objectives for the National Strategic Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health.

Delivering improvements in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child and maternal health.

Perth: Telethon Institute of Child Health Research and Rio Tinto Child Health Partnership

The Rio Tinto Child Health Partnership was developed to deliver improvements in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child and maternal health through the delivery of three projects:

* modelling the WA Aboriginal Child Health Survey for the Northern Territory and Queensland
* national foetal alcohol syndrome prevention strategy
* enhancing Aboriginal workforce capacity

The five-year Rio Tinto Child Health Partnership concluded in 2007. The report Delivering improvements in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child and maternal health evaluates the results from the partnership, and states that the partnership has allowed strong relationships to be forged between researchers, Aboriginal communities, health services, government agencies and departments and corporate Australia. Significant benefits and outcomes include: increased awareness of fetal alcohol syndrome; identification of the issues which inhibit Aboriginal health professionals; support for culturally appropriate practices in primary health care and treatment services; and increased skills of health and community workers in identifying and responding to risk factors during pregnancy.
