Researchers Prof Jonathan Adams
Brief description This Fellowship provides the first in-depth coordinated critical public health examination of an unregulated and 'covert' area of health and treatment seeking behaviour - complementary self-medication (CAM SM) use in later life. Focusing upon healthy ageing and living with chronic illness and drawing upon fieldwork with indigenous, non-indigenous and CALD communities the Fellowship will: identify the challenges and possibilities of 'covert' CAM SM use in later life; provide an evidence-base to inform safe, effective care and policy for older Australians; and generate novel analyses to provide significant advance and new direction for public health scholarship with regards to chronic illness and community health in later life.
