10 Oct 2011
Description

This paper explores Indigenous people's access to eye health services at a community level.
Our project examined equity of access to eye health services at a community level by examining the relationship between the percentage of Indigenous people living in an area, socioeconomic status and remoteness and access to ophthalmic and optometric services and the professionals that provide them. We achieved this in three stages:1. Mapping the location of eye health professionals,2. Mapping the distribution of eye health services and the relationship between different types of service provision and3. Examining the relationship between the provisions of eye services and health outcomes.  Authors: Margaret Kelaher, Angeline Ferdinand, Samantha Ngo, Nilofer Tambuwla, Hugh R Taylor
