Addressing capacity to engage in CBPR: From inception to dissemination

142nd APHA Annual Meeting and Exposition (November 15 - November 19, 2014): http://www.apha.org/events-and-meetings/annual
Wednesday, November 19, 2014: 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Engagement of all partners throughout the research process, from the conception of the issues under inquiry to the dissemination and translation of findings, is critical to the success and impact of community-academic partnerships. An important component of CBPR is the reciprocal transfer of knowledge, skills, capacity, and power such that community partners acquire skills in the conduct of research. Effective ways to investigate and build research capacity are not always clear. The presentations in this session describe different approaches utilized by community-academic partnerships to identify factors associated with community organizationsí capacity to engage in research, foster and assess partnership growth, and effectively disseminate research and practice findings.
Session Objectives: Identify barriers and facilitators to disseminating results from community-engaged research. Describe how various factors may affect organizations' ability to engage in research and build research capacity. Discuss strategies and mechanisms for strengthening community-academic partnerships, evaluating partnership growth, and translating ideas to local contexts.
