Abstract Public health scholars have increasingly called for greater attention to the political and policy processes that enable or constrain successful prioritisation of health on government agendas. Much research investigating policy agenda-setting in public health has focused on the use of single frameworks, in particular Kingdon's Multiple Streams Framework. More recently, scholars have argued that blending complementary policy frameworks can enable greater attention to a wider range of driv...

OBJECTIVE: This paper examines whether Australian regional primary health care organisations - in this case, Medicare Locals (MLs) and Primary Health Networks (PHNs) - have engaged with migrant and refugee health, and what factors encourage work in this area. METHODS: The study used mixed methods with surveys of ML (N=210) and PHN staff (N=66), interviews with ML (N=50) and PHN (N=55) staff, national consultations with migrant and refugee organisations (N=8 groups with 62 participants), and anal...

Despite this, selective approaches have dominated. This paper asks why this has been the case in Australia through a multi-method study of regional PHC organisations. Inter...

Abstract Next generation telecommunications infrastructure is expanding and supporting rapid growth of broadband technologies and a digital economy. In this context, digital information and communications technologies (ICTs) are of increasing importance as a means for people to gain access to health or social services, employment opportunities, information and social networks. In this article we draw on our recent case study research to examine the policy (and politics) shaping implementation of...

ISSUE ADDRESSED: Group work, such as peer support and health promotion is an important strategy available to comprehensive primary health care. However, group work and how it contributes to the goals of comprehensive primary health care has been under-researched and under-theorised. METHODS: In this 5-year study, we partnered with seven Australian primary health care services, and drew on service reports, two rounds of staff interviews (2009-2010 and 2013, N = 68 and 55), 10 community assessment...
