Constructing Aboriginal health: a review of cardiovascular research, 1933-2014

Ms Joanne Luke, Institution: University of Melbourne

2014 Australian Indigenous Scholarship

Years funded: 2015-2021


Ms Joanne Luke's project will explore quantitative research methodologies and techniques, and then apply these to describe contexts of cardiovascular disease for Indigenous Australians. Victorian and national population based health surveys will be analysed.

This research will provide ways forward in modelling Indigenous Australian health data, and in modelling data where there are complex relationships between various clinical, social and environmental variables.

This research will offer resistance against quantitative research techniques that lack Indigenous Australian perspectives, stereotype Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people, lack context and ignore Indigenous Australian realities.
