3372.0 Engaging Communities in Research: Best Practices

Monday, October 31, 2011: 2:30 PM
Participatory models of research, in which communities are actively engaged in the research process through partnerships with academic institutions and/or other trained experts, are central to the national prevention research agenda. This session focuses on research projects that utilize community-based participatory research (CBPR) or other frameworks to ensure community engagement in research planning and processes.
Session Objectives: 1. Identify strategies used by CBPR partnerships for research dissemination. 2. Evaluate techniques for engaging community partners in a project addressing health disparities. 3. Discuss the importance of including basic research concepts when engaging community members not well-informed about research. 4. Assess methods of evaluating the process of community participation in a lay health worker intervention research project.
