Spreading the word: Research translation on ageing well for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Far North Queensland.

Indicative Funding
$29,992 over 2 years
If we are to improve the health and wellbeing of older adults in our communities, we need to find new and engaging ways of sharing health information. This project will produce podcasts about ageing well and dementia prevention for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Podcasts can also be linked to social media. Social media use for getting health messages to the community is a developing research area. We will evaluate what people thought of the podcasts and what they learnt from them which will give us some feedback on the approach.
