Description
The project will assess emotional wellbeing effects of a brief holiday in Tasmania (between three and ten days), accounting for different tourist characteristics and daily experiences. Using a modified form of the Tourism Tracer app, including a mix of longitudinal (pre-post) surveys, daily experience sampling and geospatial data, we will assess the influence of location on mood and stress, and will assess changes in tourists psychological capital, distress and life satisfaction after returning home. Reflections collected in follow-up interviews will provide a rich source of information to build a phenomenological understanding of tourist experiences specific to the population and region being studied, and may help explain differential pre-post holiday effects on wellbeing outcomes

Trauma-Informed Care in Non-traditional Settings: Developing a TIC model for people experiencing mental distress in the burns care setting. (2019)$9,873
Description
The project will deliver a specific model of TIC to promote and protect the mental health of burns patients within a burns centre or ward. The major outcome would be the development of a workable model for clinical delivery via a pilot implementation. Data would be gathered on the findings of recent studies into the application of TIC in general care settings, particularly burns care. The TIC model would also be informed by stakeholders, including mental health professionals, burns care staff, patients and advocates and trauma specialists. This would allow first-hand perspectives on the workability of current models and practices and discussions of means to improve mental health outcomes.This model and proposed pilot intervention would allow data to be gathered on the proposed model in regard to its relevance, capacity to be taught to existing burns care staff, ability to be implemented with regard to existing processes and protocols, and the likelihood of positive mental health outcomes. The responses from this engagement would then be analysed using thematic analysis to determine if the major themes presented offer new insights into service design and delivery and how best to inform the new guidelines.This initiative can then be used as the foundations for further design of TIC services. Post-project data could be gathered if the model were trialled by a partner organisation. This we anticipate would form the basis of further grant applications from the team of researchers developed through this grant.

Exposure to passive smoke in Tasmanian children: determinants, outcomes and changes over time (2018)$24,620
Description
There are two unique datasets available within Tasmania that provide us with an opportunity be better understand the causes and consequences of passive smoking among children the Tasmanian Infant Health Study (TIHS) and the Conception to Community (C2C) study. The TIHS began in the late 1980s to investigate the causes of sudden infant death syndrome. The study involved recruitment of mothers while they were pregnant gathering extensive data on passive smoke exposure from mothers and fathers. The babies that were born in this study have been followed up several times during their life and are now aged 27 years. The C2C study includes all births among Tasmanian women from 2008 to 2014 with an expected total number of participants being more than 35,000. This study uses data linkage of health and other administrative records from mothers and babies from gestation through to early life providing a comprehensive picture of health and development. These two datasets offer a unique opportunity to examine passive smoke exposure among Tasmanian infants and children including prevalence of exposure, changes in exposure and health effects of exposure. This project will analyse data from these project to address gaps in our understanding of passive smoke exposure in children.

Achieving better mental health for maltreated children: translating population data into policy (2017 - 2019)$2,422,672
Description
Children exposed to early life maltreatment are at higher risk of later mental disorders. Early intervention is crucial for these vulnerable children. This project will assist the NSW department of Family and Community Services (FACS) in their current review of inter-agency referral services, to promote timely and efficient risk determination and resource allocation at the earliest time in child protection reporting processes. We will do this by delineating risk indicators of critical importance for the determination of risk of harm among children reported to FACS before the age of 11 years, using multi-agency, linked population-based data that is otherwise not readily available to FACS. The NSW Child Development Study (NSW-CDS) brings together unique inter-agency data for a population cohort of children (N=87,028), that will be used to determine: (1) key cross-agency reporting indicators that are associated with substantiated child protection reports and/or the need OOHC services, as well as thosespecifically indicating swift progression through the child protection system (e.g., elevation to a care and protection order, or other OOHC placement, within a short time frame from first report); (2) differences in the mental health and wellbeing of children among children represented in various child protection risk categories, as well as differences among children for whom abuse or placement into OOHC occurred before age 5 years (relative to those placed into OOHC aged between 5-11 years); (3) health-care cost estimates for all children reported to FACS through a compilation of their health service use up to age 13 years, relative to the general population. These results will directly inform the reform of child protection service referrals to ensure the best possible outcomes for children at risk of harm; we aim to optimize inter-agency reporting processes across Health, Police, and Education Departments, for which operating procedures require data-driven solutions.

Description
About 1 in 20 Tasmanians are severely obese. Bariatric surgery can improve health for individuals with severe obesity but access to surgery is poor for most public patients. This study will investigate the pathways of patients referred for bariatric surgery in the Tasmanian public and private hospital systems to better understand the demand for surgery, the health outcomes, and costs associated with these different pathways. The findings will inform public policy and resource allocation.
