Evaluation of Social and Emotional Wellbeing (SEWB) Integration Within the Implementation of the Baby One Program (BOP)

Indicative Funding
$30,783 over 2 years (administered by University of Western Australia - Apunipima Cape York Health Council)
Summary
The Study aims to evaluate the integration of social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) within the implementation of maternal and child health (MCH) services in primary health service (PHS) sites for women who are enrolled in the Baby One Program (BOP) and their young children (0-3 years). The study questions are: 1. what are the SEWB outcomes that primary healthcare workers, women and family members are hoping to achieve? How would we recognise them? 2, What are the enablers and barriers to implementing an integrated MCH/SEWB model of care within BOP? 3.How can we best measure improvement in SEWB amongst women and young children?

Systematic Review: Family-Centred Approaches for Early Childhood Health and Wellbeing Care

Indicative Funding
$21,107 over 2 years (administered by University of Western Australia-Apunipima Cape York Health Council)
Summary
The Apunipima and JCU partnership proposes to systematically review the literature to answer three overarching research questions: 1) What family-centred approaches have been documented to improve MCH and what are their effectiveness? 2) What indicators are used to measure the effects of family-centred MCH approaches? 3) To what extend have their costs and benefits been documented?

North Queensland Childrens Research Foundation - Research Grant

Do High Rates of Infection and Antibiotic use in Indigenous Children Amplify Chronic Disease Risk In Adolescence?

Indicative Funding
$49,200
Summary
Obesity and diabetes are now pandemic, however different groups are very differently affected. New knowledge indicates that hereditary risk, combined with eating habits and low physical activity, may not be the whole story behind our worsening worldwide obesity epidemic. We will test the hypothesis that early and repeated exposure to antibiotics in childhood increases the risk of overweight, obesity and the metabolic syndrome in a cohort of north Queensland Indigenous adolescents.
