ALSWH Liaison

It is a requirement that an ALSWH Liaison person be involved on every project in order to help with correct use and interpretation of the data.

A Liaison person must be contacted before the EoI is prepared, and must see the completed EoI before it is submitted to the ALSWH.

ALSWH Liaison people are very familiar with ALSWH data as well as the areas of research currently being conducted using the data. Therefore they are able to provide the best advice regarding the feasibility of any prospective projects.

The responsibility of an ALSWH liaison person is limited to the following:

  • Discussing the EoI application with the potential collaborator/s
  • Providing advice on developing the research plan (including appropriate use of ALSWH data)
  • Maintaining contact with the lead collaborator for the duration of the project
  • Reviewing publications and manuscripts before they are submitted to a journal or editor (the ALSWH Liaison person reserves the right to refer publications to the ALSWH Publications, Substudies and Analyses Committee)

The ALSWH researchers available to be liaison people, and their research interests, are listed below.

Project Assistants


The job of Project Assistant is one of those aspects of the project that often goes unrecognised. Yet our Project Assistants play an invaluable role in survey collection and keeping track of participants.
The Project Assistants are usually university students whom we employ part-time in the first or second year of their university life. Many of them stay working with us until their degree is completed and they then go on to start their chosen career.
The job involves phoning up to 5,000 participants to remind them to complete the survey, and completing surveys by phone interviews.
Project Assistants also 'track' participants for whom WHA has no current details, i.e. mail has been 'returned to sender'.


 

 

 

Aimee McLeod: Contribution of fish intake to the nutritional quality of young women's diets and implications for mercury intakes

Little systematic research has been conducted in Australia to develop a picture of mid-aged women's experiences of violence and abuse across their lifetime. The present study was designed to address this deficiency by assessing the prevalence rates of different types of abuse, the situations in which they occur, how women coped, and the effect of abusive encounters on general health and well-being. Measures included descriptive variables, the SF-36 physical and mental health summary measures, the GHQ-12 instrument for psychological distress, and the CES-D depression scale. Using self-report questionnaires, data were obtained from 1159 mid-aged women previously recruited in the The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health longitudinal project. The most frequently reported forms of abuse were emotional, physical and sexual. These overwhelmingly occurred in the home across all life stages, but mostly in adulthood and on an occasional or weekly basis. Almost all perpetrators were persons known to the victim and many women were afraid for their personal safety. Most abusive encounters persisted over time and were attributed to the personality of the perpetrator, alcohol, relationship problems, or financial concerns. The majority of women had discussed their circumstances with close relatives, friends, or professional persons, and one-third of respondents had reported abusive episodes to the police. Criterion measures of poorer physical and mental health, psychological distress, depression, and subjective perception of negative effects were predicted by frequent, but non-recent, abuse in adulthood that had continued over time and was most likely to be physical mistreatment or harassment. Other predictors were perpetrators being a blood relative, spouse, partner, or some other known person, wanting to leave the situation but not being able, and talking to professional counselling providers but not intimate confidants. It is recommended that wider recognition of gendered abuse and its impact on psychological functioning would be useful for sensitive intervention strategies implemented by social welfare agencies and private consultants.
