3313.0 Strategies to Improve Community-Based Research, Planning and Services

Monday, November 9, 2009: 2:30 PM
Specific study results show that open forums provide an opportunity to learn about issues that have not been exposed by data analysis and also to verify the analysis was accurate and representative of community views. Results from these studies indicate the feasibility of significantly increasing community involvement in community-based participatory research efforts, which will help strategize efforts to better address academic challenges to such collaborations.
Session Objectives: Assess one approach to engaging community members in survey design and training to conduct surveys and be able to describe and address challenges of CBPR. Discuss the importance of sharing research findings with the studied community. Identify and analyze the individual, social, cultural and organizational factors that promote community ownership of decision making in participatory research. Assess the implications of community ownership for the practice of Indigenous community-university partnerships in public health.
