Managing two worlds together - city hospital care for country Aboriginal people
The project is based on four separate studies:
• Study 1—Report on Admissions and Costs analyses the patterns of admission and length of stay of country Aboriginal patients in city public hospitals
• Study 2—Staff Perspectives on Care for Country Aboriginal Patients reports the views of staff who provide care for country Aboriginal patients in city and country hospitals and health services
• Study 3—The Experiences of Patients and Their Carers is a first-hand report of rural Aboriginal patients and their carers
• Study 4—Complex Country Aboriginal Patient Journeys maps four journey case studies, and analyses gaps and breakpoints in those care journeys.
