Talkin' up our doctoral research

Fredericks, Bronwyn and Adams, Mick and Walker, Melissa and Peacock, Christine and Duthie, Debbie and Best, Odette and Mills, Kyly (2011) Talkin' up our doctoral research. Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal , 35 (6). p. 27. ISSN 1037-3403


For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, undertaking the PhD journey brings with it specific challenges in how best to use the knowledge gained to make changes that will actively benefit Indigenous peoples and communities. Even within the health sector implementing research outcomes can sometimes be problematic. The Maori and Indigenous Doctoral (MAI) Conference hosted by Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi (Indigenous University), Whakatane, New Zealand, addressed this by considering the contribution of Indigenous doctoral research to advancements of Maori. As Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people engaging in Doctoral studies, this conference was equally relevant to us.
