Abstract

I am talking today not as a representative of the groups I have mentioned but as an individual who has undertaken various forms of community engagement through a range of roles, both paid and unpaid, that is, in employment and as a volunteer. Briefly, I have been involved in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled organisation for over 25 years. This has included short and long stints on some boards, for example 9 years as Chairperson of a medical service, and four years as Chairperson of a planning steering committee to establish regional services in Central Queensland. I have also worked in project and managerial roles in government and the non-for-profit sector which involved lots of community engagement with community members. What I do offer today within the short time is some key points around the issue of engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
