New guide for health researchers

A guide for health researchers working with Aboriginal people in central Australia is intended for researchers working or intending to work with Aboriginal people of central Australia.  Specifically, it aims to help and guide those researchers who want to know how to work safely, respectfully, and appropriately when conducting research here. It has introduced important considerations like Aboriginal community expectations and cultural protocols, with the aim of fostering high quality, culturally safe, responsive, and trauma-informed research. Each guideline has been developed from extensive research and consultation.

Congress and the authors hope that research conducted according to these guidelines can be of benefit to the researchers and their institutes as well as the Aboriginal people and communities who work with them. This is a living document and future editions will benefit from feedback, which can be emailed to the Congress Research Manager
