Session: Translating Research into Changes in Policy and Decision-Making at the Federal, State and Local Level
4124.0: Tuesday, November 9, 2004: 12:30 PM-2:00 PM
Translating Research into Changes in Policy and Decision-Making at the Federal, State and Local Level
Community based participatory research (CPBR) differs from more traditional approaches to inquiry in part because of its commitment to action as an integral part of the research process. Increasingly, such action includes efforts to promote health-related public policy. In this session, several project research methods and advocacy strategies will be discussed, as will the difficulties inherent in identifying CBPR’s contributions to policy change as distinct from efforts of other stakeholders.
Learning Objectives: By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to: 1) Compare the advantages and disadvantages of working for policy change as part of a CBPR process 2) Describe examples of CBPR partnerships and projects that have played a role in helping to bring about a change in public policy
