This is the fifth of six sequential, interdependent modules, available only to students enrolled in the Graduate Diploma in Indigenous Health Promotion. Students will explore the role of evaluative, descriptive and intervention research in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health promotion and define and understand the different methodologies used in quantitative and qualitative research . They will examine ethical issues in research and identify research methods that will assist their communities in identifying health issues and effective solutions without causing harm or being exploitative. Students will also understand how and when to conduct process, impact and outcome evaluations that will encourage transparency and accountability and provide evidence of the effectiveness of their health promotion program. The final 20 per cent of INDH5224 will be dedicated to commencing INDH5227.
