Researching Indigenous Health: A Practical Guide for Researchers

An important resource and contribution to health research having a real impact on improving the life expectancy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples-and closing the gap-was launched at the Primary Health Care Research Conference 2011, in Brisbane, on 14 July.


Researching Indigenous Health: A Practical Guide for Researchers,
written by Alison Laycock with support from Diane Walker, Nea Harrison and Jenny Brands, is a companion volume to Supporting Indigenous Researchers: A Practical Guide for Supervisors (2009).

The guide provides existing and potential researchers with information about the history, context, values and changing priorities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research in Australia, and guidance in how to design and manage successful research projects. It was developed in response to requests received by the Institute for resources and advice on how to conduct health research in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. This publication is available for purchase from
the Lowitja Institute website,
where you will also find more information about this guide and additional case studies.
