Assessing the Views of Prisoners on the Involvement of Prisoners in Research - A Citizens Jury Approach



This study seeks to understand the views of prisoners regarding their involvement in health research, especially in areas of alcohol and other drug use, mental illness, and hepatitis C.

The project will involve a 'citizen's jury' that will bring together a group of randomly selected or particular citizens, providing them with information on the issue, and eliciting their views on various policy options. Consultation and input from key affected communities identified in national health strategies will also occur, and will be important in determining research priorities, processes and translation, and help to evaluate research portfolio content.

This project is an initiative of the Centre for Research Excellence in Offender Health at the Kirby Institute, University of New South Wales.
