Webinar - Decolonizing Data: Principles for Public Health Research Involving Indigenous Communities

Approximate run time: 30 minutes

Date: Friday March 22, 2019 at 11:00am EDT

Presenter: Angela Mashford-Pringle and MPH-IH students

Abstract: The purpose of this webinar is to introduce participants to guiding principles that can be used to help reduce power imbalances when conducting public health research that involves Indigenous communities. The principles of OCAP (Ownership, Control, Access and Possession) and I.Q. (First Nations and Inuit) research will be discussed and provide knowledge about how to decolonize research. These principles are just a starting place and can only be properly applied in the context of researcher-community relationships built upon mutual recognition, respect, and responsibility.

Recommended Readings: 

Additional resource ($): Fundamentals of OCAP® | Fondamentaux des Principes de PCAP®
