PROJECT 1: Health promotion for women in rural Victoria (CLOSED)
Women living in rural and regional Victoria experience poorer health and injury outcomes compared with women living in major cities. This can be due to a number of factors including limited access to use of health services, generally poorer health, and risk factors including obesity and social isolation. There is, however, little understanding of the contributing factors and prevalence of poor health and outcomes. This PhD project will investigate the contributing factors to the high prevalence of poor health and injury outcomes and investigate best-practice in intervention strategies to promote improved health and reduce risk.
