Barriers and challenges affecting the contemporary church's engagement in health promotion 
Darshini Ayton, Lenore Manderson and Ben J. Smith

Churches have experience in addressing social disadvantage and are prepared to commit resources to meet the needs of people outside their congregations. The aim of this study was to explore the barriers and challenges that affect church involvement in promoting health and well being. Identified factors include perceived lack of relevance, community mistrust, conversion agendas and values that conflict with health promotion.

Engaging South Australian local governments in the development of healthy eating policies 
Louisa Matwiejczyk, Kaye Mehta and Jane Scott

Local governments are uniquely placed to influence the food environment of their communities through healthy eating policies (HEPs) but few have done so. Using a community-based participatory approach, the capacity of 31 South Australian local governments to develop and implement a HEP was increased with 14 endorsed policies. HEPs provide important structural mechanisms to enable local governments to facilitate healthy eating.

Cancer screening education: can it change knowledge and attitudes among culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Queensland, Australia? 
Katherine Cullerton, Danielle Gallegos, Ella Ashley, Hong Do, Anna Voloschenko, MaryLou Fleming, Rebecca Ramsey and Trish Gould

Low participation rates in cancer screening have been identified among migrants internationally. To address this, the Ethnic Communities Council of Queensland developed an education program for breast, bowel and cervical cancer screening. After participating in the program, participants’ knowledge increased; some attitudes toward participation in cancer screening became more positive; and intent to participate in future screening increased. These results indicate the importance of developing screening approaches that address the barriers to participation among culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

Evaluating the Sharing Stories youth theatre program: an interactive theatre and drama-based strategy for sexual health promotion among multicultural youth 
Meagan Roberts, Roanna Lobo and Anne Sorenson

This study evaluated the effectiveness of the Sharing Stories youth theatre program, which uses interactive theatre and drama-based strategies to engage and educate multicultural youth on sexual health. The study found that knowledge, confidence and attitudes of participants improved after participation in the program. These results suggest that incorporating arts-based strategies into sexual health promotion programs for multicultural youth is valuable.

Is there a relationship between primary school children’s enjoyment of recess physical activities and health-related quality of life? A cross-sectional exploratory study 
Brendon Hyndman, Amanda C. Benson, Leanne Lester and Amanda Telford

Recess breaks can provide the greatest opportunities for children’s physical activity participation at school. This study explored the relationship between Australian primary school children’s enjoyment of recess physical activities and health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Provision of opportunities and facilities for more vigorous-intensity school recess physical activities were found to be a key strategy to enhance children’s HRQOL.

Smoking status and associated factors among male Chinese restaurant workers in metropolitan Sydney 
Wei Jiang, Brenda Leung, Nancy Tam, Huilan Xu, Suzanne Gleeson and Li Ming Wen

This is the first study focusing on smoking behaviour among Chinese restaurant workers in Australia. The findings indicate that Chinese restaurant workers in metropolitan Sydney have a high smoking rate of 45%, with 50% of current smokers wanting to quit. These findings provide a sound basis to support the development of tailored health promotion strategies for this population.

Underestimation of homeless clients’ interest in quitting smoking: a case for routine tobacco assessment 
Sarah Maddox and Catherine Segan

The incidence of smoking among clients using homeless services is extraordinarily high. While nurses from an Australian homeless program were aware of their clients’ smoking habits, they underestimated the interest in quitting, which was expressed by many clients. With some simple organisational system changes to homeless services, appropriate cessation assistance could be provided to this vulnerable population.

How well are health information websites displayed on mobile phones? Implications for the readability of health information 
Christina Cheng and Matthew Dunn

Eighty-two percent of smartphone owners search for health information on their phones but is such information easy to read? This study explored how health information was displayed on mobile websites and found that only 15.93% were designed to optimise readability. Building mobile-responsive and easy-to-read websites should be a priority to capitalise on the potential of mobile phones in enhancing health literacy.

A cross-sectional study examining the extent of unwanted sexual attention and unhealthy intimate relationships among female university students 
Kelly Hayden, Melissa Graham and Greer Lamaro

A cross-sectional study of 465 female university students was undertaken to describe the extent of unwanted sexual attention and unhealthy intimate relationships. Two-thirds of participants reported experiencing unwanted sexual attention. Almost one-third reported experiencing at least one element of an unhealthy intimate relationship. These findings are concerning given the negative impacts on and individual’s physical, emotional and social well being and suggest the need for health promotion intervention.

A picture's worth a thousand words: a food-selection observational method 
Julia E. Carins, Sharyn R. Rundle-Thiele and Joy E. Parkinson

Methods are needed to accurately measure and describe behaviour during health and behaviour change research. This study developed a photographic method to capture food selections, and a food classification scheme to determine the healthfulness of food selections. Visual observation methods such as this provide insight for those developing healthy eating interventions and a means to evaluate the effect of interventions on food selection.

Partnerships and the past: reflections on 1940s community centre endeavours of the National Fitness Council 
Wendy Madsen

Historical research can provide a longer perspective on an issue than is currently perceived. This research provides such a perspective by providing insight into partnership building in the 1940s between the National Fitness Council and various government and non-government organisations – a precursor to the type of work undertaken now as part of health promotion. This historical precedence helps to expand our understanding of health promotion as a discipline within Australia.

Willingness of Australian health educators and health promotion officers to conduct rapid HIV testing 
Anthony J. Santella, Jacquie Fraser, Angela W. Prehn and Eugenia Boye-Codjoe

Should rapid HIV testing be expanded to non-traditional settings such as health promotion and education? A recent survey found that 60% of Australian Health Educators and Health Promotion Officers believed that it should and 70% were willing to be trained. As the public and private sectors continue to explore innovative ways to increase the number of people with HIV who know their status, alternative workforces should be considered.

Cultural experiences of student and new-graduate dietitians in the Gomeroi gaaynggal ArtsHealth program: a quality assurance project 
Kym Rae, Emma Bohringer, Amy Ashman, Leanne Brown and Clare Collins

Dietitians have roles to play in optimising nutrition for Indigenous Australians, but exposure to practical experience may be limited. This quality assurance project evaluated the experiences of student and new-graduate dietitians at an Aboriginal ArtsHealth centre, and identified key themes of ‘building rapport’ and ‘developing cultural understanding’. Dietetic students are encouraged to seek out opportunities for development of cultural awareness by working with Indigenous communities where possible.

Reorientation of health services: enablers and barriers faced by organisations when increasing health promotion capacity 
K. McFarlane, J. Judd, S. Devine and K. Watt

In recent years, major cuts to resources and leadership in preventive health approaches have hindered the capacity to improve population health outcomes. This literature review synthesises the enablers and barriers faced by health organisations over the past 25 years in building capacity to deliver health promotion approaches. Given current limited resources, it is timely to be aware of how capacity for health promotion can be strengthened.

Julie Norton and Maria M. Raciti

This study is the first to explore primary caregivers’ awareness of food neophobia and food preference development in young children. Primary caregivers of children aged between 1 and 2.5 years are unaware of food neophobia and food preference development. With raised awareness of food neophobia and how food preferences develop, primary caregivers may decrease their children’s exposure to non-core foods.

Promoting physical activity among children and youth in disadvantaged South Australian CALD communities through alternative community sport opportunities 
Edoardo Rosso and Richard McGrath

Current approaches to multicultural inclusion in sport may fail to focus on actual community needs. This project engaged 263 young people in a community development program aimed at empowering disadvantaged multicultural communities to engage in health promotion through sport. The results highlight that we need to move beyond thinking of sport participation as a matter of integration into existing sport clubs and structures.

Cathy O’Mullan , Joseph Debattista and Matthew Browne
pp. 4-9

Despite lack of evidence, there is speculation that FIFO and DIDO models of mining contribute to higher levels of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV in Australia. This study explored differences in sexual risk taking between two groups (FIFO/DIDO miners and residential miners); our results found little difference in sexual risk taking between the groups. These findings are important for intervention planning aimed at reducing STI transmission.

Mark Brough , Belinda Davies and Eleesa Johnstone
pp. 10-14

Although the science of food safety regulation is critical to good public health practice, it tells us little about the circumstances surrounding non-compliance. This research qualitatively explored the meanings and practices of 29 ‘non-compliant’ food businesses in order to understand their ‘insider’ perspectives of food safety regulation. The findings demonstrate the value of developing collaborative partnerships that can complement the food safety regulatory framework.

Ellen Hart and Sharyn Burns
pp. 15-20

Young university students drink more than the general population and more than other young adults. Due to high levels of binge drinking, young university students experience significant drinking-related harm. This paper explores the relationship between drinking and harm among young university students. Uniquely, it separates harm into categories: Criminal and Aggressive Behaviour, Health and Emotional Harms and Sexual Harms.

pp. 21-28

Until now, practical guidance on how to reduce alcohol-related harms in partnership with African communities has been scarce. This paper describes the results of a three-step process undertaken to create a guide to assist community groups and workers develop effective and culturally appropriate health promotion strategies. Topics and strategies discussed in this paper and the guide may also be useful for health promotion coalitions working in partnership with other CALD communities to address AOD-related harm.

Maintaining a healthy body weight is crucial, especially for women during menopause transition. This paper examines the relationship between dietary quality and the risk of becoming overweight or obese during 6-year follow-up study. Poor diet was common among mid-age women. While it is important to optimise the nutrition quality of women’s diets, this strategy alone will not address the rising incidence of overweight and obesity.

Bowel cancer is Australia’s second biggest cancer killer, yet bowel screening participation remains low. This study found that the low public profile of bowel cancer, coupled with poor knowledge of the role of screening in prevention, has contributed to misinformed perceptions of both the risk of cancer and the value of screening. Strategies that impart awareness and knowledge are needed in order to increase screening participation.

Evidence-informed practice underpinned by ethics is fundamental to developing the science of health promotion. This research explored attitudes, practices, enablers and barriers related to ethics in practice in Western Australian health organisations. Although participants reported knowledge of ethical principles, the application of these principles was inconsistent. Alignment of evidence-informed and ethics-based practice is critical and may be achieved through access to information and resources about ethics.

Contextual data is crucial to inform the development of health promotion programs in reducing tobacco consumption among Aboriginal Australians. This paper aimed to determine smoking status and associated factors among Aboriginal adults, and found that a high smoking rate was associated with age, work status and attitudes towards smoke-free homes. Targeted promotions for socio-demographic subgroups should be considered for future cessation strategies.

While evidence grows to support new media interventions for promoting health behaviours, challenges exist in implementation outside of research settings. This work aims to describe translational barriers using a case study sexual health SMS program; key challenges related to under-resourcing, and finding appropriate recruitment settings/methods. These factors must be considered to maximise the potential of new media interventions to reach large populations, while researchers must also consider translation and scalability of their work.

Drink-driving programs can be effective in reducing the likelihood of recidivism. However, most programs are developed for mainstream drink drivers. In this paper, we report on the short-term perceptions and feedback received from Indigenous drivers and community members after piloting ‘Hero to Healing’, a program based on the Community Reinforcement Approach. The findings strengthen the case for treating drink driving in Indigenous communities as a community issue rather than an individual phenomenon.

Annual screening for diabetic eye disease is recommended for Indigenous Australians, as blindness can be prevented in 98% of cases if the disease is identified and treated early. This study evaluated the impact of a health promotional video on patient compliance and screening rates, with findings demonstrating an increase in knowledge and alterations in attitudes about key disease issues. This study suggests that screening rates could be increased through expanded use of this video.
