Indigenous Research Ethics and Protocols is a module of the Wabishki Bizhiko Skaanj Learning Pathway.
This three-webinar series aims to help researchers, team members, and patient partners acquire skills to respectfully engage Indigenous peoples and communities in health research in the spirit of reconciliation and relationality. Specific topics of discussion include:
- What are Indigenous worldviews and how do they shape research ethics?
- What is the impact of colonization on Indigenous health research?
- What existing frameworks outline ethical conduct for research involving Indigenous peoples?
Understanding that Indigenous communities and Nations have distinct ethics and protocols in territories across Canada, this series of webinars will spark discussions and encourage contextualizing Indigenous Research Ethics and Protocols in local communities and Nations that are engaged in research initiatives.
