Publisher: Brisbane, Qld. and Melbourne, Vic. University of Queensland, School of Population Health, Centre for the Burden of Disease and Cost-Effectiveness and Deakin University, Deakin Health Economics, Strategic Research Centre-Population Health 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2010 NHMRC Grant No. 351558 This report was produced jointly by the Centre for the Burden of Disease and Cost-Effectiveness, School of Population Health, University of Queensland, Brisbane and Deakin Health Economics, Strategic Research Centre-Population Health, Deakin University, Melbourne. The work was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council. Bibliography : p. 65-70Summary: This report has evaluated the cost-effectiveness of 150 preventive health interventions, addressing areas such as mental health, diabetes, tobacco use, alcohol use, nutrition, body weight, physical activity, blood pressure, blood cholesterol and bone mineral density. It challenges us to learn more from intervention experiences in tobacco control and sun safety, which have demonstrated enormous benefit in the past from well-targeted and sustained activity. Similar success is possible in areas such as alcohol use and obesity, which have received low levels of investment in past decades. Additional investment, however, should not be at the expense of continuing effort in the areas in which we are making inroads.Availability: (1)

The subjective wellbeing of Indigenous Australians /

by Dockery, Alfred Michael | Curtin University of Technology. Curtin Business School. entre for Labour Market Research.

Publisher: Perth, W.A. Curtin University of Technology. Curtin Business School. Centre for Labour Market Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Centre for Labour Market Research. Discussion paper ; no..Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2010Summary: Using data on self-assessed quality of life available from the expanded Indigenous sample of the 2001 National Health Survey this paper compares the subjective wellbeing of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Assuming cross-cultural comparability of responses to the quality of life scale, Indigenous Australians are found to face a markedly lower quality of life than other Australians, consistent with the many objective measures of socio-economic outcomes. Differences in the determinants of subjective wellbeing are further explored to identify differences in values and preferences that may be embodied in Indigenous culture. The analysis is considered exploratory given the many limitations of the current data. The collection of data that can improve our understanding of the cultural constructions of wellbeing is identified as an important priority given the pertinence of such evidence for the formulation of policy to address the ongoing plight of Indigenous Australians.Availability: (1)
