Adelaide Convention Centre 

Funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing and implemented by the Melbourne School of Population Health at the University of Melbourne, the Australian Longitudinal Study on Male Health will address current gaps in knowledge on the health of Australian males, who continue to have shorter life expectancies and poorer health outcomes than Australian women. 

The study will recruit 58,000 Australian men and boys aged 10-55, oversampling younger males and males from rural and regional areas. Participants aged 15-55 will self-complete a mail questionnaire, and boys aged 10-14 will complete a face-to-face interview. Wave 1 data collection will occur mid-2013, with follow-up waves every 3 years. 

Led by Professor Jane Pirkis and Professor Dallas English, the workshop will comprise a presentation outlining the study background, methodology, instrument development and content, data linkage and mechanisms for accessing study data. The presentation will be followed by an interactive forum where attendees can seek specific information on the study design and implementation and opportunities to contribute to the design and content.
