3021.0 Measures, methods, and evaluation in CBPR

Monday, October 31, 2011: 8:30 AM
Community-based participatory research is a collaborative research approach designed to ensure participation by community stakeholders and researchers in all aspects of the research process to improve health and well-being. CBPR is not limited to a specific research design or method; rather it provides a collaborative framework to develop culturally appropriate evidence- based initiatives. Evaluating CBPR research projects is essential for determining the effectiveness of the CBPR process. This session highlights emerging transdisciplinary approaches, qualitative and quantitative evaluation methods, measurement instruments and innovative tools used to assess and evaluate CBPR research projects. Data collection and dissemination strategies will also be highlighted.
Session Objectives: Describe culturally appropriate evidence- based methods to evaluate community- based public health projects in various phases of the CBPR process Identify successful multidisciplinary CPBR strategies that can be utilized to disseminate information among diverse academic and community stakeholders Discuss best practices for research and evaluation of CBPR projects within diverse underserved communities
