KSDPP Code of Research Ethics


Code of Research Ethics  (Click here for download)


The Kahnawá:ke Schools Diabetes Prevention Project (KSDPP) Center for Research and Training in Diabetes Prevention is a community-based participatory research project.

KSDPP is a partnership between the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) community of Kahnawá:ke and researchers who are affiliated with KSDPP. Current researchers are from the community and the academic institutions of McGill University, Université de Montréal and Queen’s University.

The partners will work cooperatively and collaboratively throughout the research process. The research process includes developing the research question, determining research methodology, the acquisition, analysis, and interpretation of data, and the dissemination of the experiences and results.

Each partner provides ideas and resources that come from their experience, knowledge, expertise and capabilities. Together, through respect for each other, consultation and collaboration, the partners significantly strengthen the project and its outcomes. The partners of the project share an understanding that community-based participatory research is a powerful tool for learning about health and wellness, which contributes to the health of the community in which it is being conducted.

Community-based participatory research assures that there is respect for the community’s values and philosophy and the scientific integrity of the project. All partners have obligations towards the project and the community.
