From research to action: Translation of CBPR into practice and/or policy change

142nd APHA Annual Meeting and Exposition (November 15 - November 19, 2014): http://www.apha.org/events-and-meetings/annual
Tuesday, November 18, 2014: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
An important goal of CBPR is to combine knowledge with action to achieve social change that ultimately contributes to the elimination of health inequities. This may involve guiding the development of future research and programs, influencing policy, and developing tools, processes, or approaches that aid the CBPR process. In this session panelists will describe research activities that aim to inform policy and enhance the capacity of communities to participate in, evaluate and monitor research.
Session Objectives: Describe how CBPR takes a social justice approach to eliminate health disparities. Discuss the importance of learning and respecting a community's history, culture, values, and wishes when engaging in research with that community. Describe how CBPR can be used to impact practice and/or policy change.
