The CRC for Aboriginal Health developed this guide to help researchers and research supervisors who are working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander settings. The publication is intended to support training and be a hands-on resource in the field. It offers practical information, advice, strategies and success stories in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research. It is an easy-to-use manual in plain English that supports:

  • setting up a workplace with the capacity to employ, support and train a developing researcher
  • research processes and issues (a practical overview)
  • doing research work in and with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

A companion volume, Researching Indigenous Health: A practical guide for researchers, by the same authors, was published in 2011.
