Next Steps aims to identify and prioritise the main public health research priorities within the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector in South Australia and to identify how research can be conducted more appropriately with the Aboriginal community in South Australia.
Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia
The Next Steps project seeks to develop agreed priorities for research in Aboriginal health in South Australia through a mixed method qualitative study approach. The research is being conducted within the South Australian Aboriginal community, with significant involvement encouraged from the member services of the Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia (AHCSA), but also inclusive of other Aboriginal organisations in the State.
This project builds upon work commissioned by AHCSA in 2005, which was a scoping study reporting on the issues related to Aboriginal health research in South Australia. It was the first Aboriginal health research collaborative initiative involving AHCSA, the Department of Health and each of the three universities: Finders University, the University of Adelaide, and the University of South Australia.
