Although there have been many population studies of mental health literacy, little is known about the mental health literacy of people who reside in rural areas. This study sought to determine the impact of remoteness on public knowledge of depression and schizophrenia. The mental health literacy of residents of major cities, inner regional, and outer-remote (including outer regional, remote, and very remote) regions were compared using data from a 2003-04 Australian national survey of the mental health literacy of 3998 adults. Measures included the perceived helpfulness of a range of professionals, non-professionals and interventions, and the causes, prognosis, and outcomes after treatment for four case vignettes describing depression, depression with suicidal ideation, early schizophrenia and chronic schizophrenia. Participant awareness of Australias national depression initiative and depression in the media, their symptoms of depression and exposure to the conditions depicted in the vignettes were
Publically accessible pollution databases, such as the Australian National Pollutant Inventory, contain information on chemical emissions released by industrial facility and diffuse sources. They are meant to enable public scrutiny of industrial activity, which in turn, is meant to lead to industries reducing their pollution. In Australia, however, concerns have been consistently raised that this process is not occurring. To assess whether Australias National Pollutant Inventory is fulfilling its legislated goals, we examined the accuracy and consistency of the largest facility and diffuse source of airborne lead, a major pollutant of concern for public health. Our analysis found that the emissions estimates provided by the Inventory were not accurate and were not consistent with other sources of emissions within the Inventory, potentially distorting any user interpretation of emissions estimates provided by the National Pollutant Inventory. We conclude that for at least these important public health

19 October 2017. Melanoma is the most common cancer in young Australians aged 15 to 39 years. MIAs postdoctoral researcher, Dr James Wilmott, is studying the mutational processes and genes involved in the development of melanoma in young Australian patients aged under 30.. He recently discovered that 90% of all the melanoma DNA mutations in young patients is caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation-induced damage. Given how young they were, some as young as 15 and 16 years of age, this was a surprising finding.. We didnt expect such a high percentage of young patients to have their melanoma caused by UV damage, says Dr Wilmott. We didnt think enough time had passed to accumulate so much damage in the genes but it goes to show us how dangerous intense intermittent exposure during your early years can be.. ...

The Australian National Travel Association. The Australian National Travel Association (ANTA)-Australias peak semi-government tourist body-operated from July 1929 with a mission to place Australia on the worlds travel map and keep it there. ANTA produced many iconic travel posters of the 1930s to the 1950s. It advertised extensively in different media, including magazines and films, within Australia and overseas. Estonian-born German Gert Sellheim, who migrated to Australia in 1926, was one of ANTAs earliest and most original artists. Sellheims posters were not tokenistic. They portrayed a real rather than idealised vision of Australia. Other early artists for ANTA were Percy Trompf, James Northfield and Douglas Annand.. Why not Victoria?. Sellheim continued to work in commercial art and collaborated many times with writer Oswald L. Ziegler. Sellheim designed the book and Ziegler wrote the text. This example, with plentiful photographs of Victorias holiday spots, has a foreword by the ...
This article discusses patterns in mental health of young Australians from age 19 through 25 and explores changes in mental health over these years. Data are derived from five waves of the Australian Life Patterns longitudinal study. The outcome variable in focus was self-reported mental health. Analyses were conducted in two steps using linear mixed models with both fixed and random effects. The analysis shows a negative linear trend in mental health status. The mental health of women was worse than that of men though a negative trend was found in both men and women. Though high socio-economic status (SES) individuals reported best mental health compared to their mid and low-SES peers, a negative trend was identified for them as well as for mid-SES participants. There is weak support for a negative trend among those of low-SES backgrounds. The study adds to evidence that there is a negative trend in mental health in young Australians but that this trend is not uniform across all young people. ...

Pain associated with chronic wounds can delay wound healing, affects quality of life, and has a major impact on physical, emotional, and cognitive function. However, wound-related pain is often under-assessed and may therefore be suboptimally managed. The aim of this study was to describe the assessment practices used to assess chronic wound pain by health practitioners in Australia. A structured self-administered questionnaire was posted to members of an Australian national wound care organisation, whose membership represents various health practitioners involved in wound management. A total of 1190 (53%) members completed the survey. Overall, wound pain assessment was most commonly conducted at every consultation or wound dressing change (n = 718/1173, 61%). Nurses were more likely to assess wound-related pain before, during, and after the wound dressing procedures compared with other health care practitioners. In contrast, podiatrists assessed wound pain only when the patient complained about ...
Everyone in Australia recognises Telstra as the previously Government-owned telecommunications monopoly that was privatised a little over a decade ago, while being opened to competition. However it has still remained the dominant provider of fixed line, internet and mobile services while at the same time expanding its reach as a provider of cloud services and also increasing its role as a provider of support services to the National Broadband Network (NBN) for a very considerable sum. It is presently one of Australias largest companies with a market capitalisation of more than $75 billion and annual turnover of more than $33 billion writes Dr David More. ...

4.19 DSTG has had difficulty collaborating with small-to-medium enterprises (SME) to commercialise its inventions. Traditionally, DSTG used licenses that were up to 30 pages long, to enable industry to use its research to support Defence capability and the Australian economy. DSTG considers that SMEs often found these licenses to be a prohibitive barrier to collaboration.. 4.20 To enable SMEs to more easily commercialise some of DSTGs inventions, the Technology Partnerships Office has refreshed its suite of collaboration and commercialisation agreement templates. One of these templates simplifies access to DSTGs intellectual property whilst complying with the Commonwealth and Defence policies, in a document of three pages.38 Another innovation is a collaborative R&D template which DSTG has recently rewritten using plain language with the intention of making it easier for SMEs to use.39. 4.21 Furthermore, in May 2015, DSTG replaced its numerous divisional contracting panels with a single point ...

Mosasaurs (pronounced mow-sa-sores) arrived five million years after the ichthyosaurs died out and soon replaced plesiosaurs at the top of the food chain. Their fossils show a steady sequence of changes as they evolved from small lizards living on the waters edge to the oceans top predators. They were powerful swimmers with goanna-like bodies, long snouts and forked tongues. Their paddles were formed from soft tissue covering their long finger bones. They used them for steering as their tails pushed them through the water. Unlike ichthyosaurs and plesiosaurs, they kept their scaly skin.. Mosasaurs ate anything: ammonites, fish, turtles, plesiosaurs, other mosasaurs and even sea birds. The only thing a mosasaur had to fear was a bigger mosasaur. Mosasaur skulls with bite marks from other mosasaurs suggest they might have fought each other for food, territory or mates.. They dominated the worlds oceans and inland seas for 30 million years until they went extinct, along with the plesiosaurs, at ...

Phenytoin drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) in 3 Aboriginal Australians positive for HLA-B*56:02 has been previously reported. We report the allele frequency of HLA-B*56:02 in 2 South Australian populations, 1 Aboriginal (4.8%, 95% confidence interval 2.4-7.8%) and the other European (0%). We compared the frequency with publicly available information on HLA-B*56:02 status in other Indigenous Australian (n = 4) and European Australian cohorts (n = 1). In the Indigenous Australian cohorts, HLA-B*56:02 allele frequency ranged from 1.3 to 19%. We also describe an additional case of phenytoin DRESS (RegiSCAR DRESS score 7) in an Aboriginal Australian that was associated with HLA-B*56:02 and with CYP2C9*1/*3 genotype. In Aboriginal Australians, phenytoin DRESS appears distinctly linked to HLA-B*56:02 with an allele carriage rate substantially higher than in Europeans, but also with considerable regional variation.

Graham M, James EL & Keleher H Predictors of hysterectomy as a treatment for menstrual symptoms. Womens Health Issues, 2008; 18(4): 319-327. Background. Hysterectomy is a common procedure in Australia; approximately 1 in 5 Australian women undergoing a hysterectomy by the age of 50 for indications such as fibroids, disorders of menstruation (including excessive or irregular menstrual bleeding), and endometriosis. However, little is known about the characteristics of women who have had the procedure or the predictors of hysterectomy as a treatment for menstrual problems. This study of 687 middle-aged Australian characteristics that were likely to lead to hysterectomy for the treatment of these problems.Methods. A cross-sectional and a prospective cohort study were undertaken as a substudy of the Australian Longitudinal Study on Womens Health (Womens Health Australia). Women from the mid-aged cohort of the Womens Health Australia study who identified having menstrual problems (n 715) in the ...
BACKGROUND: Television viewing time, the predominant leisure-time sedentary behavior, is associated with biomarkers of cardiometabolic risk, but its relationship with mortality has not been studied. We examined the associations of prolonged television viewing time with all-cause, cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancer, and non-CVD/noncancer mortality in Australian adults.. METHODS AND RESULTS: Television viewing time in relation to subsequent all-cause, CVD, and cancer mortality (median follow-up, 6.6 years) was examined among 8800 adults , or =25 years of age in the Australian Diabetes, Obesity and Lifestyle Study (AusDiab). During 58 087 person-years of follow-up, there were 284 deaths (87 CVD deaths, 125 cancer deaths). After adjustment for age, sex, waist circumference, and exercise, the hazard ratios for each 1-hour increment in television viewing time per day were 1.11 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.03 to 1.20) for all-cause mortality, 1.18 (95% CI, 1.03 to 1.35) for CVD mortality, and ...

LFP FF RFP LFF CHF RFF LW Ru RW C RR Ro LBF CHB RBF LBP FB RBP In the sport of Australian rules football, each of the eighteen players in a team is assigned to a particular named position on the field of play. These positions describe both the players main role and by implication their location on the ground. As the game has evolved, tactics and team formations have changed, and the names of the positions and the duties involved have evolved too. In total there are 18 positions in Australian rules football, not including 4 (sometimes 6 - 8) interchange players who may come onto the ground at any time during play to replace another player. The fluid nature of the modern game means the positions in football are not as formally defined as in sports such as rugby or American football. Even so, most players will play in a limited range of positions throughout their career, as each position requires a particular set of skills. Footballers who are able to play comfortably in numerous positions are ...

Cricket Australia are yet to fully commit to the tour of three Twenty20 internationals on September 4, 6 and 8 a one-day series on September 11, 13 and 16..

It is well established that smoking rates in people with common mental disorders such as anxiety or depressive disorders are much higher than in people without mental disorders. It is less clear whether people with these mental disorders want to quit smoking, attempt to quit smoking or successfully quit smoking at the same rate as people without such disorders. We used data from the 2005 Cancer Control Supplement to the United States National Health Interview Survey to explore the relationship between psychological distress as measured using the K6 scale and smoking cessation, by comparing current smokers who had tried unsuccessfully to quit in the previous 12 months to people able to quit for at least 7 to 24 months prior to the survey. We also used data from the 2007 Australian National Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing to examine the relationship between psychological distress (K6) scores and duration of mental illness. The majority of people with high K6 psychological distress scores also meet
The Wardliparingga Aboriginal Research Unit (WARU) is led by Professor Alex Brown at the South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI). Health and wellbeing research is conducted that is of direct relevance to, and in partnership with, Aboriginal people in South Australia. Of particular focus is the significant gap between the health status and life opportunities available to Aboriginal people when compared to other Australians. The disparity in health status between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people is still significant, not just in terms of life expectancy but in experiences of heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, cancer and depression. Wardliparingga aspires to generate positive, long-term change for Aboriginal families and communities in South Australia.. Wardliparingga is a Kaurna term meaning house river place, and is also the name for the Milky Way reflected in the River Torrens, alongside of which SAHMRI is located.. ...

AIMS: This study evaluated guideline concordance and time to administration of antibiotics in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in a private Australian emergency department (ED). Two key components in the management of CAP are timely administration and appropriate choice of antibiotic therapy. The use of antibiotics outside of guidelines can potentially increase rates of antibiotic resistance. Previous studies that evaluate guideline concordance have largely been conducted in Australian public hospitals; however, private hospitals comprise a significant portion of Australian health care ...

Gert Hugo Emmanuel Sellheim (1901-1970), architect and graphic designer, was born on 31 December 1901 at Viljandi (Vilyandi), Estonia, then part of the Russian Empire, son of Bruno Sellheim, medical practitioner, and his wife Helene, née Moritz, both of whom were of German descent. Gert fought in the White Army in the Russian Civil War in 1918-20. After studying architecture in Berlin, Munich, Vienna, Graz and Paris, he arrived at Fremantle, Western Australia, in December 1926. Because his architectural qualifications were not immediately recognized, he worked as a farm labourer near Pingelly. Registered as an architect on 21 May 1929 in Perth, he joined R. H. Alsop and F. J. Glennon as a site architect for the University of Western Australia.. In 1931 Sellheim moved to Melbourne. He practised as an industrial and commercial designer, and began producing posters, principally for the Australian National Travel Association. His most famous posters-Australia Surf Club (which showed stylised ...
Rainfall affects run-off and groundwater supplies and in Australia this can vary depending on the time of year and location. Many people believe our droughts are linked to the growing hole in the Earths ozone layer. In a study conducted by the Australian National University, it was found that Antarctica was actually stealing rain from Australia. The Southern Ocean winds, which normally provide rain for South Australia, were being strengthened and pushed closer to Antarctica by the rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This is terrible for Australia, resulting in fewer storms for the country ...

Summary: The authors describe and analyze management in the Murray-Darling basin of Australia, long regarded as a model for integrated river basin management. This interior basin of over 1 million km2 in semi-arid southeastern Australia is defined by the catchment areas of the Murray and Darling Rivers and their tributaries. Water management issues include allocation, quality, and dryland salinity. Because of Australias federal governmental structure, institutional development has been more a matter of integrating state and local endeavors than decentralization of national authority. The Australian national government has little constitutional power over water resources. The five states in the basin make policy regarding water rights, discharge permits, fees, and the construction and operation of physical structures. River management began on the Murray River in the 1920s under the terms of a tri-state agreement. As the scope of management widened to the entire basin, more states were added and ...

No Australian National or State statistics are available. Apart from...
A new Australian study found that people who skipped breakfast had a greater risk of heart diseases. The study noticed that those skipping breakfast at an early age often did have larger waist circumferences and had higher levels of cholesterol and insulin in their blood. Overall, they had less healthy lifestyles and may have detrimental effects on cardio-metabolic health. Researchers at University of Tasmania and other places in Australia assessed the cardiovascular and metabolic risks. Breakfast habits of the adults, followed up from childhood, were assessed at the same time as their cardiovascular risk; however researchers say the link between the two is still uncertain. Therefore, it is still a bit unclear whether people who skip breakfast as a child are in fact at greater risk of heart-related illness. The team followed a sample of Australian children aged 9 to 15 years old in 1985, and revisited them between 2004 and 2006, when they were aged up to 36 years old ...
