Nurse-led and Aboriginal health worker supported model for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea diagnosis and management in remote Queensland

Indicative Funding
$50,000 over 2 years
Summary
This project involves trial and evaluation of nurse-led, and Aboriginal health workers (AHWs) supported, integrated model for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) diagnosis and management in Mount Isa. After appropriate training and upskilling, nurses and AHWs will offer diagnosis and management of OSA. Patients with moderate-severe OSA will be managed locally, while atypical/complex patients will be referred to specialists. Validated questionnaires and objective measures will be used to assess treatment effectiveness, waiting time reduction, treatment adherence and feasibility and acceptability of the model. Stakeholder interviews will help in identifying opportunities for improvement and strategies for sustaining and systematising the model over time.

Tropical Australian Academic Health Centre Limited - Research Seed Grants

Co-Design Sleep Apnoea Awareness and Education Program for First Nations Peoples in Remote Queensland

Indicative Funding
$49,881 over 2 years
Summary
In First Nations communities, limited awareness of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) and its health impact, shame in seeking care and service access issues are leading to a high burden of undiagnosed / untreated OSA. This project will co-design an OSA education program and train Aboriginal Health Workers (AHWs) as local champions to offer OSA support services for First Nations peoples. A culturally responsive education program / resources and support service will improve community awareness and understanding of OSA, enable a social environment to discuss OSA without shame and ensure timely uptake of diagnostic / management services. Evaluation will assess program acceptability, effectiveness and identify improvement opportunities.
