About Anne

Areas of Expertise and Research Interests

Since 1990 Dr Anne Lowell  BApplSc (Speech Pathology), Graduate Diploma in Language Studies, PhD has worked in a wide range of research, service development, community development and education and resource production projects with Indigenous communities.

Her work has had a strong focus on achieving genuine engagement with remote communities, utilizing highly collaborative processes that are responsive to Indigenous needs and priorities.

One of Anne's primary areas of interest is intercultural communication, particularly related to Indigenous health. She previously worked on a number of projects related to intercultural communication which have identified serious limitations in current practice as well as potential strategies for improvement (More information at Sharing the True Stories: Improving Communication in Indigenous Health Care).

Consequently, she has extensive involvement in facilitating improvements in cultural competence, intercultural communication and collaborative practice in research and health service delivery, including advocacy for policy development and resourcing to support sustained improvement.

Anne has also worked extensively on production of resources in Indigenous languages and multimedia resources for improving communication practice in Indigenous health care.

Anne has a strong interest in culturally responsive policy and practice, in both research and service provision and the development of the cultural competence required to achieve this.

This includes a particular concern for supporting increased Indigenous control, and recognition of Indigenous cultural and linguistic expertise.

This has been the central focus of her work in education, health, governance and community development throughout the last twenty years.

Development of a system for recognition of Indigenous knowledge in employment within a university framework, which can inform policy and practice in Indigenous employment across other organisations, is one of her current priorities.
