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 is a five year research project that brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars from New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia and the Australian Capital Territory. This research group has 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 are used to develop the knowledge and skills of researchers in offender health. Their findings are 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 has been funded through a National Health and Medical Research Council population health capacity building grant.
