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)

by Behncke, Stefanie | Institute for the Study of Labor.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Other title: IZA. Discussion paper ; no. 4253.Summary: This paper investigates the effects of retirement on various health outcomes.

It is found that retirement significantly increases the risk of being diagnosed with a chronic condition. In particular, it raises the risk of developing a cardiovascular disease and being diagnosed with cancer. Estimates also indicate that retirement has quite diverse effects for different individuals.Availability: No items available

Living on the edge : social and emotional wellbeing and risk and protective factors for serious psychological distress among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People /

by Kelly, Kerrie | Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association | Dudgeon, Pat | Gee, Graham | Glaskin, Belle.

Publisher: Casuarina, NT Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health discussion.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2009 Bibliography : 36-40Summary: There is more to discrimination than explicit racism and racial stereotyping. The long-standing socioeconomic inequality suffered by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is indicative of systemic and indirect discrimination ; that must be addressed. The physical and mental health impacts of this discrimination are plain to see, and contribute to the 10?17 year life expectation gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. ; To achieve equality in fact we also need to ensure that Australian social norms and standards reflect an equal value being placed on the cultures of Indigenous Australia. Within the context of government and other service ; delivery in particular, measurable standards of cultural competence?the ability to interact effectively with people from different cultures?stand to make a valuable improvement to the experience of Indigenous Australians ; (and other minority cultural, social and ethnic groups) when dealing with service providers. This discussion paper prepared by the newly founded Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association is, therefore, timely and stands to make an important contribution to efforts to understand and address the many physical and mental health impacts of discrimination as well as exploring the idea of cultural competence as it evolves.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
