The Evaluation and Knowledge Impact Team at the Northern Institute would like to invite you to a presentation to be held on Wednesday 1st November 2017.

SHARED DECISION MAKING IN INDIGENOUS HEALTH IN SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA

Supporting Saskatchewan’s Indigenous peoples in making optimal patient-centred health decisions: the development and assessment of realist program theory.

Shared decision-making (SDM) is a process whereby clinicians and patients relate to and influence each other to make healthcare choices that are informed by best evidence and by what matters to the patient.  Our research team has used realist research methods to explore how SDM works (and does not) in a Canadian Indigenous context.  This presentation will 1) describe our development of a realist SDM program theory, and 2) outline how we tested and refined the SDM program theory in an Indigenous context.

Theory development was undertaken through a realist synthesis. The synthesis offers insight into the complexity of SDM. It highlights several interconnected key mechanisms that describe how SDM works and for whom that can be applied across a range of contexts.

To test and refine the program theory, we conducted further synthesis of the literature on Indigenous health and decision making, implemented a realist analysis of interviews with Indigenous patients with cancer, and used sharing circle methodology to ask Indigenous patients and families about their healthcare decision experiences. This refinement considers the macro-context of colonial policies and the role that mechanisms such as ‘trust’ and ‘worldview’ play in healthcare decisions of Indigenous people

This presentation will describe the work undertaken to date and out plans for the next stages of the research. The intent is to provide health system and Indigenous leaders as well as policy makers with the theory required to inform future programs and interventions targeted at supporting SK’s Indigenous peoples in making their optimal patient-centered decisions.

About the presenters:

Dr. Gary Groot is a clinician-scientist and Associate Professor in the Department of Community Health and Epidemiology at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. Partnering with the First Nations and Métis Health Services and Aboriginal Health Council of the Saskatoon Health Region in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, Dr. Groot has applied a realist lens to the health care decision experiences of Saskatchewan’s Indigenous people. Dr. Groot is currently developing the first realist methodology course at the University of Saskatchewan.

Tamara Waldron, a Master’s student in Community and Population Health at the University of Saskatchewan, has a background in Cell Biology and Psychology. Tamara has undertaken multiple realist syntheses, beginning with her thesis work of developing a program theory for SDM, depicting key mechanisms for successful implementation of this intervention.

Tania Lafontaine is a consultant with the First Nations and Metis Health Services in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. She also is an Indigenous researcher with Dr. Gary Groot, working on a variety of projects for the team. Tania specialises in ensuring cultural safety and competency is achieved, provides a training stage when necessary and brings strong ties to Saskatchewan’s Indigenous community.

*No cost to attend. Light refreshments for morning tea provided at 10.30AM.

The Evaluation and Knowledge Impact Team at the Northern Institute would like to invite you to a presentation to be held on Wednesday 1st November 2017.

REALISM IN INDIGENOUS SETTINGS: IMPLICATIONS FROM THE REALIST CONFERENCE

Realist evaluation approaches were developed in Western social settings by British researchers– Ray Pawson and Nick Tilley. One of their key insights was that interventions work differently in different settings and for different groups. Instead of asking ‘does X intervention/program/policy work’, a more sensible question is to ask ‘For whom does X work (or not), in what contexts and how?’. A 2016 presentation (Williams and Westhorp) made a case for realists also paying attention to the research or evaluation context for each project, and the research/evaluation mechanisms and outcomes they generate. This is of special importance in evaluations conducted in Indigenous settings.

The Brisbane international realist conference, the first held outside of Europe, includes a stream of papers and workshops focusing on the use of realist approaches in Indigenous settings.  Amongst other things, the conference asked Indigenous evaluators to consider how (and how not) the realist approach aligned with Indigenous values, ways of knowing and ways of sharing information. Participants were asked whether and how this might be different in remote, relatively traditional communities compared to urbanised populations. Two participants present conference findings and recommendations for the future. There will be time for discussion.

About the presenters:

Michael Torres comes from the Jabirr Jabirr clan, whose country lies between Broome and Beagle Bay on the Dampier Peninsula in Western Australia. Michael has worked for over 30 years in social service, including mentoring, family/domestic violence, respectful relationships education, and men’s healing initiatives. He now heads the recently incorporated Darwin Indigenous Men’s Service, which provides a culturally safe space to strengthen spiritual, social and emotional well-being. It aims to break the cycle of family violence, improve well-being and re-position men as protectors and supporters of family and community. Michael is also an artist and author; he has twice won Northern Territory literary awards. He is interested in the potential of realist approaches, but shares others’ concerns that Aboriginal knowledge may be misunderstood by external researchers and evaluators who do not understand cultural ways of communicating, and who fail to recognise that community needs and aspirations may differ from external perceptions.

Associate Professor Emma Williams leads the Evaluation and Knowledge Impact team at Northern Institute and was Co-Chair of the 2017 International Realist Conference.  She has used realist approaches in multiple projects in Indigenous settings, in health, education and justice settings.

Abstract: The benefits of telehealth in remote Australia have been demonstrated. Uptake of telehealth in the NT has been limited, for a variety of reasons e.g. inadequate access to broadband. Through collaboration between stakeholders, this program has developed/will develop staged implementation at different test sites with solutions based on staffing numbers and remoteness. Program partners, Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance Northern Territory (AMSANT), Broadband for the Bush Alliance (B4BA Ltd), National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO), Indigenous Remote Communications Association (IRCA), eMerge IT, Telstra are working on expanding the uptake of telehealth as well as expanding digital literacy in remote communities. The collaboration continues to strengthen and expand. There have been many learnings along the journey and some unexpected benefits.

Short food supply chains in stretched geographies

Short food supply chains in stretched geographies


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Dr Alexandre Dubois, Researcher, Department of Urban and Rural Development, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Sweden

Date: Nov 08, 2017

Time: 10:30am to 11:30am

Contact person:  Northern Institute
T: 08 8946 7468
E: thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Northern Institute, Yellow Building 1, Level 2, Room 48 (Savanna Room)

Target audience:  Open To the Public - All Welcome – Please Share

Abstract: Dr Alexandre Dubois will present the conceptual framework and empirical findings from his ongoing postdoctoral research dealing with the establishment of short food supply chains (SFSC) in the context of the North Swedish context, one of Europe’s most peripheral and sparsely populated regions of Europe. Alex will introduce some insights about the ongoing fieldwork he is undertaking in Mid North South Australia region (Burra-Clare Valley-Southern Flinders Ranges).

Alex will also present on the theoretical underpinnings from the debate in economy geography about proximity dynamics that he used to explore the relational processes of formation of SFSC. The use of proximity as a conceptual framework allows distinguishing between spatial (i.e. Euclidean distance) and relational (cognitive, organizational, institutional and social) understandings of emerging producer-consumer relations. Plus how these processes shape how small producers located in remote rural settings establish and develop such shortened relations with consumers.

About Dr Alexandre Dubois: Dr Alexandre Dubois is researcher at Department of Urban and Rural Development at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Prior to this, he was senior research fellow at Nordregio, the Nordic Council of Ministers’ research institute on matters of regional development and spatial planning. Alex’s research focuses on entrepreneurship, innovation practices and regional development policies in Europe’s northern sparsely populated areas. Read his full profile here.
