The Indigenous Offender Health Research Capacity Building Group Community Report

This Community Report documents the stories, research and other work of postgraduate and early career researchers of the Indigenous Offender Health Research Capacity Building Group (IOHR-CBG). The origin of IOHR-CBG came from a National Health and Medical Research Council’s Capacity Building Grant for the project: From Broome to Berrima: Building capacity Australia-wide in Indigenous offender health research. The project saw a network of Indigenous and non-Indigenous academics (Chief Investigators) and mentors work with and support aspiring and emerging researchers (Team Investigators), to build their individual research capacity and, more broadly, research, knowledge and networks in the Indigenous offender health field.

Key findings

Collectively, the team investigators have produced:

  • 35 peer-reviewed journal publications
  • 28 reports, editorials and resource publications
  • 40 conference presentations
  • 32 committee and reference group memberships
  • collaborated on 8 successful grant/scholarship applications; and
  • produced four parliamentary inquiry submissions.
