Promoting thriving populations: A world-first toolkit to improve genetic management of threatened species.

The conservation of many threatened species depends on moving individuals between populations, both wild and captive, to establish new populations in safe havens. Decision-makers, like governments, must decide which applications for translocations they should approve, yet have no way to estimate the likely benefits of different proposals. This research will use new developments in population modelling to create a decision-support tool that uses advanced modelling techniques to investigate how moving animals between populations will influence genetic diversity. The tool will help threatened species managers and government agencies make evidence-based decisions.

Primary care screening tool to detect, prevent and treat mental health issues for older Australians

This project aims to develop a novel primary care screening tool, Wellbeing Check, to detect common mental disorders, including depression, anxiety, and substance abuse, in older adults. Routine screening in primary care can reduce the under-detection and undertreatment of older adult mental disorders, as well as identify early risk factors for poor mental health, including loneliness, social isolation, and low social activity.

This tool will couple results from the Wellbeing Check with recommended interventions, increasing access to evidence-based interventions. It will also allow early detection and intervention for risk factors to help prevent mental disorders in this vulnerable age-group. The tool will be developed in consultation with older patients, clinicians and researchers to ensure its acceptability and feasibility for wider, sustained use. An evaluation will be undertaken of the clinical efficacy and cost effectiveness of this screening tool in a clinical trial in GP practices in the Sydney North Primary Health Network.
