Abstract

Review objectives/questions: The objective of the scoping review is to map the international scientific literature on web-based therapeutic interventions (WBTI) used by Indigenous people for assessing, managing and treating health conditions. The focus of this review is WBTIs for a broad range of health conditions, including but not limited to, communicable and non-communicable diseases, mental health conditions (including the broader concept of social and emotional wellbeing), use of harmful substances and gambling. The questions for the scoping review are: 1. What types of WBTI used for assessing, managing and treating health conditions in Indigenous populations have been reported in the literature? 2. What conclusions and interpretations with regards to the uptake and the effects of WBTI used for assessing, managing and treating health conditions in Indigenous populations have been reported in the literature? 3. What recommendations for practice with regards to the use of WBTI for assessing, managing and treating health conditions in Indigenous populations have been reported in the literature? 4. What explanations have been reported in the literature for the observed uptake of WBTI used for assessing, managing and treating health conditions in Indigenous populations? 5. What types of outcomes have been reported in the literature for the use of WBTI for assessing, managing and treating health conditions in Indigenous populations? 6. What explanations have been reported in the literature for the observed outcomes of WBTI used for assessing, managing and treating health conditions in Indigenous populations?
