Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse women, lesbian, gay, bisexual trans* and intersex women, women who live in rural and remote areas (as a focus).
A mixed methods design is proposed which includes:
- A literature review.
- Survey of MBCP providers nationally and a short survey of women whose partners have attended MBCPs.
- In-depth interviews with managers, facilitators and PC providers.
Incorporating these three approaches will contribute to triangulation of data and developing a detailed understanding about partner contact in the context of MBCPs.
