Supporting First Nation-Centred Research & Meaningful Collaboration

As part of our 2019 Summer Learning Series, CHILD-BRIGHT is hosting free webinars, open to all interested in delving deeper into topics related to Patient-Oriented Research (POR).

Join us for this final session.

When: Thursday, August 22, 2019
Time: 9:00-10:00 a.m. PST / Noon-1:00 p.m. EST

In this session, we will:

  • Introduce some of the key historical, contextual, and ethical considerations when considering research involving First Nation peoples and populations

  • Explore the importance of integrating both Indigenous and Western knowledge in research approaches

  • Discuss the First Nation principles of ownership, control, access, possession (OCAP®)

  • Use our project, "Prenatal Opioid Exposure and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome: A Research Project with Indigenous Peoples in Ontario First Nations", as a case study to illustrate how we embedded these concepts into our research

  • Share perspectives on patient-oriented research as Indigenous researchers and community members.
