Survey: Understanding ethical research with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

The MACH Aboriginal Leadership Group with the Cardiovascular Health Equity Group at the University of Melbourne is conducting a survey (open to May 9, 2020) to understand Australian researchers’ (both Indigenous and non-Indigenous) perspectives regarding use and application of ethical guidelines with attention to governance as a foundation for ethical Indigenous health research.

By completing and distributing the survey you will be supporting an Indigenous-led collaboration striving to improve and strengthen existing research practices and guidelines for the benefit of both researchers and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities involved in research.

The purpose of our research is to understand Australian researchers’ (both Indigenous and non-Indigenous) perspectives regarding use and application of ethical guidelines with attention to governance as a foundation for ethical Indigenous health research.  

 

For any further information please contact lead investigator and Aboriginal Leadership Group Chair, A/Prof Luke Burchill: blj@unimelb.edu.au

What is involved?

Should you agree to participate, we ask that you fill in the survey provided in an honest and thoughtful manner. All data collected will be deidentified, so there is no chance it can be tied to you. The survey shouldn’t take any longer than 15 minutes to complete.

 

What are the possible benefits?

Your involvement in the survey will contribute to a vital area of research that aims to improve the application of ethical guidelines to research involving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Improved understanding of how these guidelines are currently used and how they may be better applied in the future will benefit both the research and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. You will not be reimbursed for your time.

 

Do I have to take part?

No. Participation is completely voluntary. You are able to withdraw at any time.

 

We thank you for your interest in this research.
