Summary of Project

This program identifies the need for early identification of health markers in very remote Indigenous populations. Many of the community health clinics have limited resources and community members have even greater limitations when accessing services commonly found in larger regional and urban settings. As such many disease processes fail to be identified in the early stages and treatment options can then become limited. Very little has been done in this area and as such this steam offers the scope for a number of projects to be conducted. We offer a strong emphasis on practice-led research methods and we especially welcome candidates with an interest in Indigenous health, remote health care and public health.
