3152.0 Discussion: Community Based Participatory Research

Monday, October 27, 2008: 10:30 AM
Community-based participatory research emerged from an amalgamation of action research and community empowerment. Community Based Participatory Approaches (CBPA) encourage active participation of the community in the entire research process. Increasing attention focuses on the benefits of CBPA that incorporate a collaborative democratic process equitably involving all partners in program and evaluation and recognizes the unique strengths that each brings. CBPA address important problems in society and by increasing participation, power, knowledge, and praxis, CBPA can further the realization of eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities.
Session Objectives: 1. Identify key principles of community-based participatory approaches to address racial and ethnic disparities in health 2. Describe strategies that are useful in translating key principles into practice.
