    Description

    A realist rapid review (RRR) of evidence about health communication in remote health service contexts was commissioned by the Spinifex Network.
    The number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people using remote health services in Australia increases with remoteness, and yet interventions to improve health communication between First Nations peoples and intercultural health service provision are relatively rare. This review finds evidence from academic publications with which to propose guiding principles and theories that can frame health communication interventions which local health networks and health services to realise more effective health communication in remote Australia.
