Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research ethics award
Published: Wednesday 21st January 2015
The Lowitja Institute is proud to offer, for the first time, an award that recognises and upholds respectful ethical practice in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.
Tarrn-doon-nonin is the Woiwurrung language term for 'trust'. Doing ethical health research in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander settings means doing research in ways that are culturally safe and ethically acceptable for all involved – research participants, communities/organisations and other interested community members, as well as the research team. It involves Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities influencing what, why, how and when research is done, as well as how it is used.
