Abstract

The underutilisation of maternal and infant health (MIH) care services by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, along with the lack of appropriate, culturally safe care, has been a driving factor behind creating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander MIH care programs such as the Baby Basket (BB) program. High quality evaluations of MIH programs are necessary for quality, evidence-based care. This literature review has been conducted to inform the evaluation design and ongoing quality improvement of the BB program. The review summarises previously used evaluation designs and available indicators for evaluating and monitoring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander MIH programs. An outline of the issues associated with these types of evaluation designs and indicators is provided, along with suggestions for improving data collection and evaluation quality.
