Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander quantitative research approaches to descriptive research inquiry into cardiovascular disease

Years funded:
2015 - 2019

This 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.
