Cross cutting themes

Major cross-cutting themes which intersect with the four priority areas are:

Indigenous Health

Goal: to tackle the disproportionately high incidence of stillbirth among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women through comprehensive efforts that address causes, prevention and care. Our Indigenous Advisory Committee, which widens the previous Queensland-based Indigenous Reference Group, provides guidance on Indigenous aspects of stillbirth research, including consultation and engagement with Indigenous women, communities and health care providers. Indigenous identifiers are included in all relevant data collections, as advised by the CRE’s Indigenous Advisory Committee.

Clinician Education

Goal: to ensure effective implementation of best evidence into clinical practice.

Increasing Community Awareness

Goal: to increase community awareness and engagement to enhance the response and benefit of all CRE initiatives.

Health Economics

Goal: to assess and support implementation of beneficial interventions. The Stillbirth CRE employs a model of development and testing interventions across lead sites in collaboration with clinicians and parents, with a view to implementation across the Women’s Health Care Australia hospital network.
