Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation - Research Grant

How can models of referral and access to cardiac rehabilitation in rural and remote areas of Far North Queensland be improved?

Indicative Funding
$5,000
Summary
To investigate how to improve referral and access models of cardiac rehabilitation services for people living independently in rural and remote areas of North Queensland. Mixed method research will be used to develop an evidence base including descriptive epidemiological data of people hospitalised with heart disease, a hospital case study of referral and discharge processes, and participatory action research involving health professionals and people living independently in rural and remote areas, following hospitalisation for heart disease. Based on the findings, propose model(s) aimed to improve referral and access models of cardiac rehabilitation in the target population.

The Australasian College of Tropical Medicine - Travel Health Advisory Group Grant Scheme

Australians travelling abroad: travel health advice, insurance, concerns and purpose

Indicative Funding
$17,766 over 2 years
Summary
Australians have been travelling overseas in record numbers. In previous studies, travellers have not always sought pre-travel health advice or taken out travel insurance, but this may be changing with industry messaging. The purpose of travel may also be changing. The aims of the study are to conduct a survey (a component of the Australian Social Survey): * to describe the patterns and purpose of travel of Australian travellers abroad; * to ascertain the extent to which these travellers sought pre-travel health advice and from whom; * to gain an understanding of travellers' main issues that they may be concerned a bout whilst travelling; * to determine if travellers are taking out travel insurance for their trip and from whom. This information will be able to support travel advice for Australians travelling abroad, by assisting Australian travel health authorities in better directing service delivery for travellers, as well as for teaching purposes to assist in understanding the different risks involved in travel.

Travel Health Advisory Group - ACTM Research Grant

Travel Health - Deaths, antimalarial prescriptions and Website

Indicative Funding
$35,630 over 2 years
Summary
On average each year 300 international travellers die while in Australia. This study aims to update (2006-2012) the previous research (1997-2000 and 2001-2003) on traveller deaths in Australia. There is also a dearth of information about deaths of children travellers and trauma related travellers deaths. Information from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) cause of death information will be utilised to describe travellers deaths 2006-2012. Malaria continues to represent a significant risk for some travellers from Australia and malaria chemoprophylaxis has remained an important countermeasure. Trends in antimalarial use may be influenced by a number of factors, including the availability of antimalarials, increasing resistance, the issuing of updated guidelines for malaria chemoprophylaxis, and continuing education. The aim of this study is to investigate the trends in prescription of antimalarial drugs, particularly those recommended for chemoprophylaxis in Australia, from 2009 to 2013 and to update the last study covering the period 2005 to 2009.
