August 22, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

As part of our 2019 Summer Learning Series, CHILD-BRIGHT is hosting free webinars, open to all interested in delving deeper into topics related to Patient-Oriented Research (POR). Join us for this final session.

In this session, we will:

  • Introduce some of the key historical, contextual, and ethical considerations when considering research involving First Nation peoples and populations
  • Explore the importance of integrating both Indigenous and Western knowledge in research approaches
  • Discuss the First Nation principles of ownership, control, access, possession (OCAP®)
  • Use our project, “Prenatal Opioid Exposure and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome: A Research Project with Indigenous Peoples in Ontario First Nations”, as a case study to illustrate how we embedded these concepts into our research
  • Share perspectives on patient-oriented research as Indigenous researchers and community members.

It’s really hard to make changes in health care. When a PVN patient partner says, ‘This is important to us’ it keeps us grounded on why a change is needed and keeps us motivated to keep going on projects.
