Healthway funding for first of its kind Aboriginal AOD research
Healthway has announced funding for the ‘Working together to reduce the harms from alcohol and other drug use in an Aboriginal community controlled primary care health context’ research project.
The NDRI-led study aims to improve existing approaches to AOD use care in the South West Aboriginal Medical Services, a WA Aboriginal community controlled primary health care service.
The study will be the first of its kind to apply a continuous quality improvement approach to address AOD issues in an Aboriginal community controlled primary health setting, with a model of care to be co-designed with the local community and Services staff. Central to the study will be an ‘all-teach-all-learn approach’ that draws on expertise from local Aboriginal people and primary care staff as well as Aboriginal and non-Indigenous researchers.
