qualifications: PhD

contribution: original concept

position: Lecturer

B.Sc. (U of Manitoba, Canada), M.A. (U of Alaska, USA), PhD. (Monash University, Australia). Research Fellow, University Centre for Rural Health Sub-Dean (ECR) for Rural Health, Sydney Medical School University of Sydney I am Opaskwayak Cree from northern Manitoba, Canada. My main area of expertise is in research methodology and epistemologies, particularly in ways of knowing and conducting research used by Indigenous peoples. I have applied these methodologies and epistemologies within the contexts of Indigenous education, counselling and counsellor education, Indigenous mental health and general Indigenous studies through comparison between Indigenous peoples internationally. In my previous book Gwitch'in Native Elders: Not just knowledge but a way of looking at the world, I began to document some ideas about just what an Elder is and how they can be supported. My more recent book Research is Ceremony: Indigenous Research Methods (2008) examines some of the similarities in philosophy underlying Indigenous peoples' research methodologies in Canada and Australia. In addition to further articulating Indigenous philosophies and research paradigms, my research focuses on the inter-related concepts of identity, health and healing, culture and wellbeing.

Sabrina has a PhD in Health Behaviour (University of Newcastle), a Master of Science Degree in Household & Consumer Sciences (The Netherlands) and a Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety (RMIT University). Sabrina Pit has over 20 years experience in public health research to improve the quality of life of older people. She has experience in complex data analysis, large datasets, longitudinal data analysis, randomized controlled trials, and mixed methods. During her Ph.D. work, she conducted an NHMRC-funded cluster-randomized controlled trial which improved the use of medicines and reduced falls among older people through changing GPs behavior. In 2008, she was awarded a 4-year postdoctoral NHMRC part-time research training fellowship to continue her research in ageing well and productively by exploring pathways to healthy workforce participation. She is now the Workforce Research Stream Leader at the University Center for Rural Health, University of Sydney, Lismore. Currently, she is investigating how to prolong general practitioners and nurses working life in a healthy and happy manner. Among her research areas are work ability, productivity, sustainable employability, absenteeism, medicines use, healthy ageing, quality of life, rural health, preventative health, and health promotion. She believes in improving intergenerational communication through training. Her world vision is to create a 1000 happy and healthy workplaces to prolong working lives and learn from the wisdom of our elders to make our world a better place and encouraging others to do the same.
