Research development and implementation

The practice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research has been widely questioned, criticised and debated. Researchers need to build cultural values and approaches into their processes and ensure their research is informed by and implemented in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities with whom they work. To facilitate this process, the Lowitja Institute brings together researchers with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector, community members, government and others to identify areas where targeted research may be able to make a real difference. This has also led to some case stories of best practice in this area.
