New Report: Role of CBPR in Improving Health

Posted on August 15, 2003

The U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has released a new brochure “The Role of Community-Based Participatory Research: Creating Partnerships, Improving Health” to provide leaders of community- and faith-based organizations with an overview of the issues involved in community-based participatory research. In community-based participatory research, subjects give more than informed consent, they share their knowledge and experience in helping identify problems to be studied, define research questions in ways that are culturally appropriate, and use study findings to improve community life and practice. Community-based participatory research is a collaborative process of research that encourages the active and equitable involvement of community and faith leaders and organizations in addressing research problems and recognizes the assets of community and researchers.
