Congress’ research service endeavours to meet the strategic imperatives of; accountability for outcomes, quality improvement of services and programs and listening to the people it serves.
Congress partners with research institutions to conduct research in core business areas of:
- Medical Care: This research relates to the diagnosis and treatment for management and prevention of Aboriginal illness and disease;
- Social and Preventative Care Programs: This research examines links between family and social environments for prevention of illness and disease; and
- Actions on Social Determinants: This research examines the impact of housing, education, employment and access to justice and empowerment on Aboriginal health.
Congress research partnerships:
- Conduct collaborative world class research that translates to development of a comprehensive evidence base to guide effective practice and policy;
- Develop sustainable research capacity in health and medical research especially within the Aboriginal community controlled primary health care sector;
- Promote best practice approaches to clinical service delivery and public health;
- Promote engagement of Aboriginal people in research, health and healthcare; and
