Planting the S.E.E.D.S of Indigenous Population Health Data Linkage
September 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDTFree
From the Population Data BC website:
“The increasing accessibility of data through digitization and linkage has resulted in Indigenous and allied individuals, scholars, practitioners, and data users recognizing a need to advance ways that assert Indigenous sovereignty and governance within data environments. Advances are being talked about around the world for how Indigenous data is collected, used, stored, shared, linked, and analysed.
During the International Population Data Linkage Network Conference in September of 2018, two sessions were hosted and led by international collaborators that focused on regional Indigenous health data linkage. Notes, discussions, and artistic contributions gathered from the conference led to collaborative efforts to highlight the common approaches to Indigenous data linkage, as discussed internationally.
This presentation will share the braided culmination of these discussions and offer S.E.E.D.S as a set of guiding Indigenous data linkage principles.”
Robyn Rowe, an Anishinaabe-kwe (First Nations woman) and member of Matachewan First Nation with hereditary roots from Teme-Augama Anishnabai (Temagami First Nation), will be presenting the session. She is a PhD candidate and staff scientist at ICES Central and the Indigenous Data Team Lead for Health Data Research Network. Robyn’s work prioritizes relationships with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis in order to address governance and sovereignty initiatives that matter to Indigenous nations.
