  • Volume 40 Working with young people in North Queensland: A strengths-based
    • Abstract: Onnis, Leigh-Anne; Stow, Che
      The media share many stories about the problems in Australian Indigenous communities and few about the positive activities and programs undertaken in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It is important to tell these good stories too. This is a story about a strengths-based approach using narrative therapy to work with young people in remote North Queensland.

  • Volume 40 Burning coals: My experience as an aboriginal woman in research
    • Abstract: Schrieber, LJ
      As I sit here on my computer sweating in my little house, deep in "the ghetto" (housing commission area) of Cairns trying to write my thesis, I keep thinking about all the struggles we are faced with as Aboriginal people. One of my non-Indigenous colleagues tells me I need to find a quiet place to write my thesis. Ha! In my house I have two children under the age of five, a nephew, my husband, my mother in law and about eight other nephews, nieces, sisters, cousins and a brother that sleep, play and eat here most weekends. While I could view this situation as a distraction (and admittedly sometimes it is), they are all actually my only real motivation. That's what this article is about. The people that have inspired me.

  • Volume 40 Indigenous people and qualitative research - making it work
    • Abstract: Roman, Curtis
      Indigenous people currently comprise 26.8 % of the Northern Territory population. The Federal Government has recently embarked on a closing the gap campaign to improve the lives of Indigenous people and to address the disadvantage that exits in the lives of Indigenous people. This paper is designed to provide Indigenous and nonindigenous people working in research with some practical advice on how to improve the research experience for Indigenous people and how to develop culturally appropriate research methodologies. The paper proposes that qualitative research methods are practical, useful, beneficial and culturally appropriate for research on and with Indigenous people. The paper also provides practical advice on how to ensure that Indigenous people are represented in research to ensure that their voices are clearly heard. It is hoped that this paper creates awareness among researchers so that they can use this awareness in their research on Indigenous people.

      The methodology used to write the paper is based on the author's own research experiences as an Indigenous researcher. In the main, the data used in this paper has been gathered from qualitative research textbooks and from personal experiences in research and based on the author's personal experiences of delivering post graduate research courses on Indigenous research issues.

      The paper shows that qualitative research methods can be useful, productive and culturally appropriate for Indigenous people and can be used to enrich data and to encourage Indigenous people to participate in research. The paper shows that through qualitative research techniques, Indigenous people are able to express themselves and identify issues themselves, which means that researchers are able to gather more data while at the same time, providing Indigenous research participants with a feeling of cultural safety. This is important for those in the area of Indigenous research as Indigenous people have had a long history of negative research experiences.

  • Volume 40 The intersection between research and ethics, as it applies to
           indigenous methodologies
    • Abstract: Toombs, Maree
      Research processes as well as research outcomes is increasingly a focus of consideration for those engaging in a broad range of Indigenous research in Australia. 'Research reform advocates have argued for a fundamental re-positioning of Indigenous peoples from that of research participants to that of active participation in all aspects of research activity'. This paper proposes a set of guiding principles that may assist in developing an effective relationship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants when conducting research. As we all should know by now, research about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people has not always been ethical. There are many examples of intellectual property of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples being exploited, with no beneficial outcomes for those providing the researchers with their knowledge.

  • Volume 40 Aboriginal peoples participation in their health care: A patient
           right and an obligation for health care providers
    • Abstract: Couzos, Sophie; Thiele, Dea Delaney
      Health professionals may be experts about disease, but patients are experts about their lives.That's because patients live with their illness and disease every day. The best health care providers know that the factors that influence peoples lives also influences their health outcomes. They treat the patient and not just the disease. This is called patient-centered care.

    • Abstract: Hall, Kerry
      Mum came from a family of remarkably strong determined independent Aboriginal women. The first of these was my Great Grandmother Rose Ann Silver Fox, her mother 'Lilly' died when she was 3 months. About 4 years old, Rose Ann was taken from her family and sent to Cape Bedford Lutheran Mission (now Hopevale). She was "adopted" by Charles Silver from Silver Plains Station about age 5. Rose lived there until she married my Great Grandfather William Henry Gostelow Snr in 1911. They had eight children.

  • Volume 40 How primary health care can better support the families of
           aboriginal Australians in contact with the criminal justice system: A
           human rights approach
    • Abstract: Delaney-Thiele, Dea; Lloyd, Jane E; Abbott, Penny; Baldry, Eileen; McEntyre, Elizabeth; Malera-Bandjalan, Kathy; Reath, Jennifer; Indig, Devon; Sherwood, Juanita; Harris, Mark F
      Aims and Rationale: Cycling in and out of prison is recognised as extremely damaging and disempowering for the families of Aboriginal Australians and their communities. We examined the impact of incarceration and the return of former inmates to their communities on family members and how primary health care services might provide better support to Aboriginal families and communities.

      Methods: A human rights-based framework was used as an interpretive lens to analyse findings from ten interviews with family members of Aboriginal former inmates. Three human rights principles were invoked: the accountability of duty bearers, participation of right holders, and equity and non-discrimination.

      Findings: The impact on Aboriginal family members of supporting a relative in custody and post release is substantial. In the absence of adequate post-release discharge planning and communication between services, it was left to family members to identify the immediate needs of former inmates and also to establish their own links with community services, including primary health care. Family members have therefore acted as important brokers to accessing primary health care services.

      According to the human rights framework, both family members and inmates are right holders. However, unless an inmate is on parole, there is no single agency responsible for meeting the needs of the former inmates. Therefore, there is no official duty-bearer. Primary health care services may provide health care, information, emotional and instrumental support to former inmates and family members but the manner in which this occurs is largely reactive. Relevance to policy, research or practice needs

      There is a need to identify which organisations are the key duty bearers for former inmates and family members and how best to support them to ensure the rights holders can access their rights to health and wellbeing. Rather than a single organisation, the key to effective post-release support is a linked and collaborative service network model. Primary health care needs to link with appropriate other social and human services so that when families and former inmates seek support they are ready to activate the network as well as provide targeted health interventions as needed.

  • Volume 40 The impact of suicide contagion and intergenerational
           segregation on youth and young adults in remote indigenous communities in
           Northern Territory, Australia
    • Abstract: Hanssens, Leonore
      As the incidence of suicide contagion proliferates within traditional Indigenous communities in Northern Territory, Australia, it has dramatically impacted on youth and young adults, with clusters of attempted and completed suicide in these age groups. There are six different aspects of suicide contagion identified in Indigenous settings including the social, behavioural, emotional, cultural, familial, and intergenerational which are explored.

      The experience of suicide contagion is different in Indigenous communities as it halts dramatically around the age of fifty which points to a protective factor within Indigenous Elders that is not available to Indigenous youth and young adults. It also suggests a possible intergenerational segregation at that age, where the older and younger generations rarely intersect.

      Indigenous suicide is almost exclusively by hanging, especially in the very young, and the social issues that determine suicide in Indigenous settings, are indicative of a troubled youth and young adult Indigenous population, with resultant political ramifications. Combined with the specific vulnerabilities within Indigenous settings, suicide contagion is difficult to contain and has led to an echo cluster phenomenon in certain high risk settings. The "Echo Cluster Model" represents this process and pattern of echo clusters. There is now emerging evidence of suicide containment in some high risk communities where Indigenous communities are able to harness the strengths of the Indigenous Elders who are protected from suicide contagion (> 50 years). Promote Life NT Models 3 and 4 and descriptive examples, demonstrate the ability of Elders through cross generational re-engagement, to support and protect youth and young adults by intergenerational integration, to contain and reduce suicide and support broad postvention initiatives in Indigenous settings.

      The challenge of staying up to date

      One of the great challenges facing health workers is to stay up to date with the research and other information that informs high quality, evidence based practice. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers are like most professionals in the health sector; overburdened, under resourced and time poor. Keeping upto- date with the vast amount of available information is becoming increasingly difficult. Choi in 2005, estimated that in the area of biomedicine alone we would need to read 19 original articles a day just to keep up, growing at a rate of 7% per year. If we calculate that to 2015 the number is in excess of 30 a day, a clearly impossible task for even the most dedicated worker who is expected to keep abreast of developments in a wide range of health conditions. And yet, we must keep up in order to maintain best practice and to deliver the positive outcomes the community expects and is entitled to receive. Ann Sanson and her colleagues put it very succinctly when they observed that the gap between what we know and what we do is far greater than the gap between what we know and what we don't know. David Satcher, the former US Surgeon General, went one step further when he stated that 'the gap between what we know and what we do in public health is lethal to Americans, if not the world'. The same undoubtedly applies in Australia. Professor Ian Chubb, Australia's Chief Scientist in 2012, said in relation to medical research 'that there is a gap between basic research and clinical applications, and it is to the detriment of our health care options'. He also highlighted the associated problem of getting all the good science published in the first place with some journals only able to accept 3% of submissions. This is precisely the gap that the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet (AIH) was designed and developed to fill in order to support positive outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.

           Torres Strait Islander men in prison
    • Abstract: Munro-Harrison, Emily; Trounson, Justin; Ironfield, Natalie
      Learning through storytelling, intergenerational interactions and respectful passing on of knowledge have been integral parts of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures for thousands of years. Although the process of colonisation has severely disrupted many of the cultural rights and activities practiced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations across Australia, it has not eradicated them, and we continue to adapt and change as we have done for thousands of years.
