Social media is improving health literacy in Australia's Indigenous population

Social media is improving health literacy in Australia's Indigenous population | ICT  and Indigenous Australian communities - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander | Scoop.it

Around the world, social media is a disrupting and transforming force, bringing new opportunities for innovation and participation.1 In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have developed resources to provide guidance on using social media in health communication.2 In the United Kingdom, the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement encouraged its staff to explore the potential of using social media to transform care and staff engagement.

 

In Australia, the Indigenous health sector has been at the forefront of innovative use of social media for advocacy, public health promotion and community development. Two striking examples are the Lowitja Institute’s nuanced explanation of knowledge exchange from Indigenous perspectives4and the Healing Foundation’s engaging explanation of the impact of colonisation on Indigenous health.

 

The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) was an early adopter of social media, and finds it a valuable advocacy tool, according to its Chair, Justin Mohamed. It distributes daily Aboriginal health news alerts via social media. Mohamed says downloads of NACCHO’s policy submissions have increased since they have been promoted on Twitter and other online channels.

 

The popularity of user-generated content — a hallmark of social media — is being harnessed in new tobacco control programs. These include the No Smokes campaign from the Menzies School of Health Research and the Rewrite Your Story initiative by Nunkuwarrin Yunti (a community-controlled service). In New South Wales, the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council uses Facebook to promote sexual health and smoking cessation.

While the digital divide is thought to be an issue relevant to remote and hard-to-reach communities, social media has been successfully used in the Torres Strait Islands to connect young people with a public health initiative in sexual health — the Kasa Por Yarn (“just for a chat”) campaign, funded by Queensland Health. Unpublished data show that Facebook, YouTube and text messaging were effective in reaching the target audience of 15–24-year-olds (Heather Robertson, Senior Network Project Officer, Cairns Public Health Unit, Queensland Health, personal communication). Patricia Fagan, a public health physician who oversaw the campaign, says that social media helped increase its reach. The campaign was using tools with appeal to young people, and, importantly, “it didn’t feel like health, it felt like socialising”. Heather Robertson, the project leader, says engaging local writers, musicians and actors in developing campaign messages and social media content was also important.

 

Social media has also been used to increase engagement with the Heuristic Interactive Technology network (HITnet), which provides touch-screen kiosks in Indigenous communities and in prisons. The kiosks embed health messages in culturally based digital storytelling. Helen Travers, Director of Creative Production and Marketing for HITnet, says this has brought wider health benefits, by developing the content-creation skills of communities. “The exciting thing for health promotion is that this kind of work is increasing digital literacy and digital inclusion”, she says.

 

Social media’s facilitation of citizen-generated movements is exemplified by the @IndigenousX Twitter account, where a different Indigenous person tweets every week, enabling many health-related discussions.

 

Innovation in service development is also being informed by the anti-hierarchical, decentralised nature of social media. The Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre is developing virtual mental health resources for Indigenous youth in remote communities. The centre’s Chief Executive Officer, Jane Burns, envisages that these will resemble a social network more than a health care intervention, and will link young people and their health care providers with online collection of data about sleep, weight, physical activity and related measures. Burns says, “It really is . . . creating a new mental health service, a new way of doing things that empowers the individual, rather than being that top-down service delivery approach”.

 

However, barriers to wider use of social media exist. Burns says that upskilling health professionals is critical. Kishan Kariippanon, a former paediatric physician studying social media and mobile phone use among youth in the Yirrkala community in Arnhem Land, says health professionals need support and encouragement to engage more creatively with technological innovations. He would like to see regular “hackathons” to bring together programmers, health professionals, innovators and community members to encourage “out of the box” thinking

Resources: A call for better support and wider use of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers [VIDEO]

Resources: A call for better support and wider use of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers [VIDEO] | ICT  and Indigenous Australian communities - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander | Scoop.it

The resources were developed after the Health Workforce Australia “Growing Our Future” report highlighted a range of barriers to this workforce achieving their potential.

 

The role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers is poorly understood, despite their important work in Closing the Gap,

ET Russell's insight:

This article provides links to various resources:

- The RHEF resources include a documentary, A Unique Profession, a clip of a live panel discussions and filmed case-studies and interviews, and an online and printable Learning Guide, providing self-directed in-depth education. The Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME) Network has worked with REHF to develop eight short video training clips, to embed them in their teaching resources.

i-Bobbly Indigenous Mental Health App: Getting Mobile Mental Health Into Indigenous Communities

i-Bobbly Indigenous Mental Health App: Getting Mobile Mental Health Into Indigenous Communities | ICT  and Indigenous Australian communities - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander | Scoop.it
Mental health clinicians are testing a smart phone app which delivers suicide prevention treatments designed specifically for Indigenous people.

 

The suicide rate for Indigenous people is four times Australia's national rate. Many Indigenous people live in remote parts of Australia where therapists able to deliver suicide prevention treatments are rare or non-existent. And most treatments have been developed for European Australians rather than Aboriginal Australians.

 

These are the challenges that a smart phone app is trying to overcome. The I-bobbly app has been designed specifically for Aboriginal people living in remote communities.

ET Russell's insight:

Currently this App is undergoing a 'control trial'.

Subject to trial results it will be released openly. The current feedback has been positive by the end-users to utilising technoloFork format

Mobile Journalism Provides Real Job Skills to Indigenous Youth - Cherbourg MoJo

Mobile Journalism Provides Real Job Skills to Indigenous Youth - Cherbourg MoJo | ICT  and Indigenous Australian communities - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander | Scoop.it

The Cherbourg MoJos will learn the skills of mobile journalism (digital storytelling) using iPhones, so that they can tell stories about their community. The MoJos will gain real job skills, be capable of freelance journalism work and will improve their reading, writing, speaking, listening and maths skills at the same time.

ET Russell's insight:

“MoJo” (mobile journalist) is used to describe a reporter who writes stories from his or her community using portable technical tools such as smartphones.

 

This skill allows Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to capture their culture, their stories locally and then sharing them with the rest of the world via social media platforms.

Indigenous Youth: What Wellness Skills Can They Develop Online? Live Graphic Recording

Indigenous Youth: What Wellness Skills Can They Develop Online? Live Graphic Recording | ICT  and Indigenous Australian communities - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander | Scoop.it

Live Graphic Recording: indigenous youth wellness conference (Canada)

In this two-day indigenous youth wellness conference hosted by the Provincial Health Services Authority, youth gave creative presentations about their visions for wellness. Working in partnership with Karlene Harvey, these 6-foot posters were created “live” during the sessions—and the youth were excited and engaged with the process of having their ideas captured right in front of them.

ET Russell's insight:

Disclaimer:

These four graphics capture the thoughts of Indigenous Canadian youth:

- What wellness skills can Indigenous youth develop online?

- What does Indigenous youth wellness look like?

- Going Home (what are the benefits of going back to country)

- Youth perspectives for an online wellness tool

 

I wonder if there any similarities to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youths from Australia and Indigenous youths from other countries? 

 

and if so...

How can families, community, society and organisations support,  enable and empower these youths to improve their wellness?
