The Indigenous Peoples’ Health Research Centre (IPHRC) and the Saskatchewan Centre for Patient-Oriented Research (SCPOR) are pleased to offer training modules for researchers and their teams seeking to engage Indigenous communities in research. Entitled Building Research Relationships with Indigenous Communities (BRRIC), these modules offer a diverse array of essential information covering issues such as:

  • the history of Indigenous health and research in Saskatchewan;
  • existing policies and frameworks guiding research with Indigenous communities such as OCAP™, Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action, Tri-Council Policy Statement Chapter 9 and;
  • protocol on how to respectfully and meaningfully engage communities in research projects.

The module is beneficial for faculty, researchers, patient and family advisors, health care providers, SCPOR supported research teams, students, research and health organizations, and any other individual or organization seeking to engage Indigenous communities in research. The aim of the module is to provide participants with practical skills for engaging in transformative research with Indigenous peoples that utilizes best practices to ensure research is effective and produces outcomes that benefit Indigenous communities.
