Inductive, thematic analysis was conducted using framework data management methods in NVivo10. Results: Five high-level themes were derived: the battle to access housing; secondary homelessness; overcrowding; poor dwelling conditions; and housing as a key determinant of health. Participants associated their challenging housing experiences with poor physical health and poor social and emotional wellbeing. Housing issues were said to affect people differently across the life course; participants expressed particular concern that poor housing was harming the health and developmental trajectories of many urban Aboriginal children. Conclusions: Housing was perceived as a pivotal determinant of health and wellbeing that either facilitates or hinders prospects for full and healthy lives. Many of the specific health concerns participants attributed to poor housing echo existing epidemiological research findings. These findings suggest that housing may be a key intervention point for improving the health of urban Aboriginal Australians.]]> Wed 11 Apr 2018 09:28:16 AEST ]]> Is psychological distress in people living with cancer related to the fact of diagnosis, current treatment or level of disability?: findings from a large Australian study https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:10533 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:13:57 AEDT ]]> Psychological distress in carers of aboriginal children in urban New South Wales: findings from search (phase one) https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:28364 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:25:08 AEDT ]]>
