The development of the eye health promotion resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples will include:
who will collaborate with the Project Leads to co-design all aspects of the resources, including its objectives, key messages, look and feel, and execution.
The following Guiding Principles have been developed by the Project Steering Group to ensure that the health promotion resources are developed in a culturally appropriate way:
- We ensure that our connection and interactions with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and communities comes a genuine and culturally safe space, that embraces the principle ‘with mob, not for mob’
- We recognise and respect the richness of and diversity of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples whilst ensuring mob’s world views, languages, lifestyles, and laws are respected in all settings. Furthermore, we acknowledge the impacts of social, environmental, and cultural determinants of health and healthcare
- We prioritise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples voices in the consultation and development of health promotion resources. Our focus is consultation in a culturally safe and consensual way, ‘the right way’ when listening to and representing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, families, communities, and their stories
