This video shows how Dr James Fitzpatrick and his travelling health team from Paediatric Child Health and Education Services (PATCHES), visit the remote community school in Muludja in Western Australia's Fitzroy Valley, to screen for Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD).

The service is part of the Marulu strategy, which is a partnership between Aboriginal leaders and researchers to address the prevalence of FASD in the Fitzroy Valley. The strategy aims to diagnose and prevent FASD, as well as offer therapies and support to the families and children who are affected by FASD. This video highlights the importance of integrating Aboriginal ways of knowing with evidence based practice to empower communities.

Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders: a review of interventions for prevention and management in Indigenous communities.

Canberra: Closing the Gap Clearinghouse

This report defines Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and provides currently available estimates of its prevalence in the overall Australian population and in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population.

This resource reviews the Australian and international literature published since 1990 on the effectiveness of programs that aim to prevent FASD or to alleviate its effects. Evidence on the effectiveness of Australian and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander specific programs is also assessed, including those programs that have been developed and implemented in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

In celebration of National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) week 2015, the Kirby Institute has a created a booklet which showcases their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research.

Aboriginal people are one of the priority populations for research conducted at the Kirby Institute. The Kirby Institute manages a range of Aboriginal research and surveillance projects including viral hepatitis and sexually transmitted infection (STI) clinical interventions in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services, prisoner health surveys, behavioural surveys, national STI and blood borne viruses (BBV) surveillance, trachoma surveillance, training and education and policy development.

This report outlines a number of projects being conducted by the Kirby Institute across Australia. Information for each project includes:

  • a description of the project
  • expected benefit to the community
  • investigators
  • Aboriginal community involvement
  • collaborating organisations
  • funding body
  • achievements/key findings
  • contacts.

The aim of this report was to identify ways to facilitate the collection and reporting of information about Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) in Australia. The report reviews sources of data relevant to FASD, models for developing FASD data, and strategies to address identified gaps in information.

The report recommends developing a repository of FASD related data to enable further research and prevention strategies to be initiated and to allow appropriate resources and services to be delivered to those affected, and their families.

A promising future: WA Aboriginal health programs: review of performance with recommendations for consolidation and advance.

Perth, WA: Department of Health, Western Australia

This report, also known as The Holman Review, evaluated the effectiveness of state-funded Indigenous health programs in Western Australia (WA), focusing on the measurement and achievement of clinical health outcomes. The report examined 184 Indigenous health programs and found that the majority deliver value for money and are underpinned by scientific evidence.

The report also found that primary prevention programs are under-funded relative to their significance and that service delivery in regional areas is fragmented. The report recommends that changes be made to the way the WA Department of Health funds and contracts Indigenous health services. The report was commissioned by the WA Department of Health at the request of the State Government and was prepared by independent expert Winthrop Professor D'Arcy Holman, Professor of Public Health at the University of WA.
