Sharing the True Stories: Improving communication between health staff and Aboriginal patients, Stage 1 reportA. Lowell, I. Brown, B. Marrŋganyin, M. Flack, M. Christie, P. Snelling & A. Cass 2001
This report covers Stage 1 of a two-stage project to identify strategies to improve communication between health staff and Aboriginal patients, a key determinant in improving health outcomes for Aboriginal people. Stage 1 of the project was primarily an exploratory phase to inform decisions about actions to be undertaken in Stage 2. It was conducted with renal staff and patients in the Top End of the Northern Territory and focused on a discrete group of Aboriginal people (Yolngu speakers from north-east Arnhem Land) suffering from renal disease.
