Since women are the main decision makers for family health issues and the main family carers, their access to appropriate health and wellbeing information is crucial in order to make informed choices and to access services and support. WCHM commissioned this report as there was scant research identifying ACT women’s needs and preferences in relation to health and wellbeing information; the ways in which they appraise information; the barriers that restrict them from accessing information; and the gaps in their information landscape. This report explores the views and preferences of ACT women in accessing health and wellbeing information and how this information is transformed into knowledge, and identifies the major themes and the barriers facing them.
