Abstract: We all know it’s a digital world and we know it’s not always good for you. Our team’s working with partners across Australia to promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health and wellbeing - increasingly in the digital space. We’re developing new tools, testing them through clinical trials and qualitative work, and then training and following up primary care providers using formative evaluation, implementation science, and knowledge translation to support behaviour change. But in an increasingly crowded space, where apps are everywhere, how do we know what’s a quality e-tool and what’s not?

This seminar will update on our activities, talk about some of our findings and the challenges we’ve met along the way, and provide a checklist for assessing e-tools in the health space that many might find useful. We’re always on the lookout for collaborations, partnerships and students - there’s lots of creative work to do - so come along and share your experience, ask questions, and register your interest!.

Biography: Tricia is a Senior Research Fellow with thirty plus years of experience working in NT rural and remote mental health and substance use settings as psychiatrist, educator and researcher. Read more on our website.
