Tuesday, October 30, 2012: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
The active engagement of communities in the research process is a key component of participatory models. Researchers and communities alike can benefit from mutual engagement in these projects to advance health promotion research and the dissemination of best practices. This session will focus on research projects that utilize community-based participatory research (CBPR) or other participatory frameworks to ensure community engagement throughout research planning, implementation and dissemination.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe principles of ethical engagement of communities in research 2. Identify three examples of successful community engagement
