Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this scoping review is to identify and describe existing research on the impact of sport and physical activity programs on social outcomes among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia. INTRODUCTION: Physical activity can be particularly beneficial for groups such as Indigenous populations, who have increased rates of chronic disease. Systematic reviews have demonstrated the positive impact of physical activity on a range of health indicators, and there is also support for the positive impact of physical activity on wider social outcomes. However, there is a lack of evidence for the benefits of physical activity for broader social outcomes among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. INCLUSION CRITERIA: This scoping review will consider studies that include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of any age from any setting or region of Australia. Studies will be considered if they report on programs or activities that use physical activity and sport participation as a component or tool to improve one or more of six social and community outcomes: education, employment, culture, social wellbeing, life skills and crime prevention. METHODS: Nine databases will be searched, as well as a selection of websites containing resources related to physical activity, sport and social outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Studies published in English will be included. No date limits will be set. After screening the titles and abstracts of identified citations, potentially relevant studies will be retrieved in full. Data extraction will be presented in a table with accompanying narrative.
