Abstract

[Extract] In the early 2000's many Indigenous communities across Queensland Alcohol Management Plans (AMPs) were implemented as a means of controlling alcohol availability [1, 2]. For many communities enforcing limitations to the quantity and type of alcohol allowed, known as ‘carriage limits’ occurred [1, 2]. AMPs were again reviewed in 2008 resulting in complete prohibition in a number of Indigenous communities [3,4,5]. For Pormpuraaw, although further restrictions were implemented, full prohibition never occurred and the canteen continued to function. Pormpuraaws canteen and alcohol service practices are often quoted as the 'gold standard' by Indigenous Cape York communities. As part of a larger National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia (NHMRC, Early Career Fellowship #1070931) funded study on alcohol related injuries and resilience, the project follows the methodology of Gladman et al [6] who conducted a comprehensive study of injury in 5 Cape York communities between 1995 and 1996. This project aims to describe and categorise injuries in four remote Indigenous communities in Cape York, Far North Queensland, Australia.
