The Managing Two Worlds Together project aims to add to existing knowledge of what works well and what needs improvement in the system of care for Aboriginal patients from rural and remote areas of South Australia (and parts of the Northern Territory). It explores their complex patient journeys and what happens when they come to Adelaide for hospital care. The project is taking place in two stages, with stage 1 focusing on the problems and stage 2 (taking place during 2012) focusing on the solutions. This four-page summary report provides an overview of stage 1.
