Keeping Research on Track: A guide for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples about health research ethics is a companion document to Values and Ethics: Guidelines for Ethical Conduct in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research. Keeping Research on Track is designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to use when they are considering conducting or being involved with health research. It helps people become familiar with the stages in the research journey and make decisions about health research. This helps ensure that the research journey respects shared values as well as diversity, priorities, needs and aspirations of communities; and benefits Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as well as researchers and other Australians.
Values and Ethics and Keeping Research on Track are to be used together, along with the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007-updated 2014).
Values and Ethics and Keeping Research on Track are both currently under review.
