Research projects, developed in partnership with Community
Apunipima’s Research Vision: In partnership with our communities, lead a research agenda that improves health and wellbeing outcomes for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people, empowers people to reach their full potential, and strengths research capacity.
Researching with Apunipima
Apunipima, like many other Aboriginal community controlled health services, is frequently approached from external researchers requesting involvement in Indigenous health research projects. There is also research which is generated and conducted by the organisation.
Apunipima supports research of high ethical and scientific quality, which is underpinned by community support. All research that is conducted in partnership with Apunipima must receive approval from Apunipima’s Research Governance Committee (RGC).
Ethical Guidelines for Researchers
Ethical guidelines ensure that research with and about Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples follows a process of meaningful engagement and reciprocity between the researcher and the individuals and/or communities involved in the research.
