Abstract

The attitudes of Yolŋu persons towards their recent hospitalisation experiences (i.e. 1995-99) at Gove District Hospital (GDH) were obtained through the conduct of community-based interviews and the results compared with attitudes obtained from interviews of current patients.

The study identifies a number of themes arising from the responses of ex-patients, primarily around the issue of communication difficulties experienced and more specifically with their lack of satisfaction with explanations given concerning diagnosis and treatment.
