Summary
Discusses mixed methods study conducted to determine views of Aboriginal people on their experiences of a brokerage model for access to community-based health services in an urban setting; broad range of approaches, using surveys, semi-structured interviews and community forums with Aboriginal people were used to find out people's views and experiences of using the brokerage service; results 1304 people invited to participate, only 127 people provided feedback on brokerage service model for Aboriginal people, of that 120 people identified as being Aboriginal; participants said service helped them to navigate the system and access health care; participants felt health professionals involved with service were respectful of their needs; service was not able to improve access to dental care; brokerage model implemented in this area appears to have been well received and is supporting urban Aboriginal people to access some health care needed; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people often experience difficulty accessing health services; urban brokerage models of care were funded by the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) under Improving Indigenous Access to Health Care Services initiative and aimed to increase access to mainstream health services; brokerage model of care in South West Sydney has been well-received by Aboriginal people receiving service and participants are positive about th role of service in increasing access to mainstream health care; navigating healthcare system is difficult for some and a brokerage service with supportive Aboriginal health workers increases access
