Following the consultations, we identified the need for a package of awareness raising materials – formatted in a manner that promoted a balanced, realistic message sufficient in assisting people with reducing the
ir chances of getting bitten by a tick while, at the same time, ensuring people are not dissuaded from spending time in areas where there may be ticks present – since there is great health benefit to be gained from being active in the outdoors. Using this as the starting point for developing an appropriate risk mitigation strategy , we returned to the communities with drafted materials, designed in-house by the Rural Health and Wellbeing Team,
and engaged them in a process of co-design, whereby their feedback was
used to refine the materials – we ensured that the communities were involved at all stages of development and the materials used for the pilot study have been designed in-line with the needs and requirements of the communities.
