Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) young people experience significantly poorer health and greater social and economic challenges to future health than other Australian young people. However, there remains major gaps in evidence and longitudinal studies highlighting the health trajectories of ATSI young people.
This study aims to develop, pilot and field test, an approach using a tablet-based computer to collect self-reported data on alcohol use behaviours in an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population.
This research will determine the factors that influence parents’ actions and impact on their children’s alcohol consumption. The findings will inform the development of effective parent interventions that reduce alcohol consumption amongst adolescents.
