Collaborations and community engagement

Peak bodies in South Australia (Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia - AHCSA) [external link] and the Northern Territory (Aboriginal Medical Service Alliance Northern Territory) [external link] have provided letters of support for funding this project. The Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation [external link] are a critical friend.

We have established collaborative agreements with community controlled health organisations and services in each jurisdiction, including the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress [external link] in the Northern Territory, Nunkuwarrin Yunti of South Australia [external link], Women's and Children's Health Network, SA Health, [external link], Moorundi Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service Inc. [external link], The Bouverie Centre [external link] and The Royal Women's Hospital [external link].

To minimise participant burden, this formative research project is being conducted in the Northern Territory, South Australia and Victoria only. However key stakeholders from all jurisdictions are participating in the co-design workshops which we hope will be able to inform their subsequent proposals to pilot potentially acceptable, feasible and effective perinatal strategies to identify and support Aboriginal parents experiencing complex trauma.
