Managing two worlds together : City hospital care for country Aboriginal people

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.

Stage 1 of the project focuses on the problems. Four studies were conducted and are reported in six documents:

• Managing Two Worlds Together: City Hospital Care for Country Aboriginal People Project Report (this report)

• Managing Two Worlds Together: City Hospital Care for Country Aboriginal People Community Summary

• Managing Two Worlds Together: Study 1 - Report on Admissions and Costs

• Managing Two Worlds Together: Study 2 - Staff Perspectives on Care for Country Aboriginal Patients

• Managing Two Worlds Together: Study 3 - The Experiences of Patients and Their Carers

• Managing Two Worlds Together: Study 4 - Complex Country Aboriginal Patient Journeys.
