Summary:
"This report focuses on the under representation of Aboriginal peoples in the privileged Western research design of randomized controlled trials (RCTs). The authors make a strong case that to remedy existing health care disparities, researchers need to develop participatory, socially relevant, and culturally safe methods for conducting RCTs within First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities."--Pub. desc.

Abstract:

"This report focuses on the under representation of Aboriginal peoples in the privileged Western research design of randomized controlled trials (RCTs). The authors make a strong case that to remedy existing health care disparities, researchers need to develop participatory, socially relevant, and culturally safe methods for conducting RCTs within First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities."--Pub. desc.

"The objective of this systematic review was to describe the frequency and design of randomized controlled trials (RCT's) specifically addressing Aboriginal health. The purpose was to determine the extent that RCTs have been used as a research methodology within Aboriginal communities, to explore the types of health-based interventions assessed using RCTs, and to assess the relevancy and applicability of RCT within Aboriginal communities."--Exec. summary.

"Twenty-two (22) studies were identified that met the inclusion criteria. They addressed a number of health-related issues, including obesity, diabetes, mental health issues, parenting, child conduct problems, and substance use. The majority of studies were conducted in the United States and Australia, with few exceptions in Canada."--Exec. summary.
