3063.0 Community-Based Participatory Research: Voices From The Field

Monday, October 27, 2008: 8:30 AM
The Public Health Nursing Section Research Committee Session for New Investigators: Community-based participatory research (CBPR) has emerged as an important avenue to improving the quality and impact of public health research. The community-partnered approach engages community members as full partners in scientific inquiry—from study conception to completion. In this session, nurses experienced in CBPR will share their successes and discuss the unique challenges, highs, lows, and pitfalls of these joint ventures. They will address establishing new partnerships, delineating and sharing roles and responsibilities, ethical concerns, building research capacity with partners, collaborative decision making, and funding strategies.
Session Objectives: 1. Distinguish three challenges in doing community-based participatory research that differ from other types of research collaborations (CBPRs). 2. Suggest two ways academic institutions may need to accommodate community partners in order to successfully implement CBPR projects. 3. Suggest three ways that the community-based participatory approach to research might enhance the applicability and utilization of study findings. 4. Describe how investigators engaged in CBPR work and solve problems differently than traditional researchers
