Principles in Code

P6 notes recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities and the requirement that they will be consulted and involved in decisions about research and will be informed about research outcomes and benefits.

A similar principle should be added for inclusive practices with other groups that research is about. Specifically research about people with disability should include them in the governance and conduct of the research. This is a requirement in equivalent research in the UK.
