4170.0 Elevating the Knowledge Base of CBPR Communities

Tuesday, November 9, 2010: 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Poor and marginalized populations may take lessons from history regarding the level of trust they give those offering “help” with reversing negative health outcomes in their community. When investigated, barriers to trust can reveal that this problem consists of multiple levels of problems that prevent successful community-based collaborations. This session invites presentations that demonstrate winning methods of removing barriers to trust. Abstract submissions should show evidence of how the process empowered the community to reverse its negative health outcomes. Abstracts will be reviewed according to the following criteria: 1. Consistency with vision of CBPH Caucus 2. Level of Community involvement 3. Importance 4. Originality 5. Well-Grounded in Science and/or Participatory Practice 6. Consistency with Meeting Themes 7. Overall Quality and Completeness of Proposed Presentation 8. Community Leader as first author 9. Discusses at least one of the following issues: Lessons learned, barriers to trust, social change, social action, health equity, community engagement, community participation, community empowerment, community led, capacity building, and sustainability. 10. Social justice from the community perspective.
Session Objectives: 1. Identify at least 3 key barriers to trust identified in the focus community 2. Discuss two methods used to dismantle each barrier to trust. 3. Explain at least 4 ways in which the community was strengthened by dismantling identified barriers to trust and whether the level of community commitment to the project increased or not.
