From Broome to Berrima: Building Capacity Australia-Wide in Indigenous Offender Health Research

 

Overview

From Broome to Berrima: Building Capacity Australia-Wide in Indigenous Offender Health Research was a five year research project that brought together Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars from New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia and the Australian Capital Territory. This research group formed the basis of the Indigenous Offender Health Capacity Building Group (IOHR-CBG), an Australia-wide health and criminal justice research network.

IOHR-CBG members work on and support various projects in areas critical to the health and wellbeing of Indigenous offenders including:

Collaborative research work, secondments to research centres and mentoring were used to develop the knowledge and skills of researchers in offender health. Their findings were shared and disseminated to a wider audience through annual symposia, publications in academic journals, an online IOHR-CBG newsletter and other media.

The project commenced in 2009 and was funded through a National Health and Medical Research Council population health capacity building grant.
