Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research needs to be driven by priorities set by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, to be of practical use and to develop research capacity within the Indigenous community. The Lowitja Institute and its predecessor organisations have developed resources in response to a growing need in this area.
The guide includes the history, context, values and change priorities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research in Australia and the planning and management of projects. It offers practical information, advice, strategies and success stories in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research.
A companion volume, Supporting Indigenous Researchers: A practical guide for supervisors, by the same authors, was published in 2009.
