Good engagement practices for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research

This presentation will highlight the good research practices the program uses with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities in our work. The aim is to share what constitutes good practice with those interested in Indigenous health research. It will also highlight where to go for information on research priorities, policy priorities and peak and local groups invested in this space.

The seminar will use a case study approach from Mayi Kuwayu, the National Study of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Wellbeing, run within the program. Mayi Kuwayu is the largest adult Indigenous cohort study in Australia, and aims to provide the first large-scale evidence on cultural factors and their links to health and wellbeing.
