Values and Ethics – Guidelines for Ethical Conduct in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research

 


View full details | Go to resource


The Values and Ethics Guidelines is an Australian national guideline for health research with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and issues. The document was intended to be a reference for researchers and ethics reviewers. The document was issued by the NHMRC. The Values and Ethics Guidelines introduces and discusses the following principles:

  • Reciprocity
  • Respect
  • Equality
  • Responsibility
  • Survival and protection
  • Spirit and integrity

Even though the document has not been enacted adherence to the Values and Ethics Guidelines is at least notionally a condition of NHMRC funding. The annual human research ethics compliance report sent to institutions by the NHMRC queries whether the Values and Ethics Guidelines were utilised. It is expected that the outcome of a review of the document will be released later in 2015.
