Welcome to cair investigator partnership workshop

  • CAIR is an Exploratory Center of Excellence funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIH-NIMHD) (award numberP20MD006872)

    CAIR is a collaborative effort

  • Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff AZ (PI: P Sanderson)

  • University of Arizona, Tucson AZ (PI: N Teufel-Shone)

  • Diné College, Shiprock NM (PI: M Bauer)

  • Executive Advisory Board working at federal and university levels

  • Community Advisory Board working at the community level


Why a center for american indian resilience cair

Why a Center for American Indian Resilience (CAIR)?

  • American Indian Public Health tends to take a disease and/or deficit approach

  • The goals of CAIR are to provide an opportunity:

    • to examine community assets, e.g., the role of traditional knowledge, collective memory and cultural strategies in teaching health behaviors and supporting positive health outcomes

    • to document these health strategies and positive behaviors oftentimes not collected in public health research

    • to transfer and integrate collective native wisdom, knowledge and experience into contemporary public education and health promotion intervention

Strength or asset based thinking

Strength or Asset Based Thinking

  • Aligns with a resilience approach and research

  • Focuses and identifies on what is going well

  • Taking stock of what we already have in terms of resources, abilities, and commitment

  • Using Cramer acronym – You ROC

    • R - Resilience

    • O - Optimism

    • C - Confidence


Asset based statements

Asset based statements

  • American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) adolescent females were 30% more likely to receive an HPV vaccine in 2011, as compared to non-Hispanic whites

  • The 32 tribally controlled colleges experience a greater increase in AI/AN student retention than all other colleges (Trujillo and Alston 2005)

  • A tribe-specific social service program documented a decrease in intimate partner violence over the last 5 years


Asset based thinking

Asset based thinking

  • Does not ignore the challenges

  • Identifies successes

  • Explores resilience strategies

  • Documents processes and lessons to be learned from positive outcomes

  • Tests application of successful approaches to other challenges

  • Encourages us to thinking outside of the box

Welcome to cair investigator partnership workshop

Community-Based Participatory Research is built on the notion that research can be a force for social change


Community based participatory research cbpr

Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR)

  • Partnership approach to research that equitably involves community members and researchers in all aspects of the research process

  • Partners contribute their expertise, share responsibilities and integrate knowledge to improve the community

  • Engages the community as an entity that makes decisions and shares in the responsibility for the research

  • Evidence-based? (Wallerstein and Duran 2010)


Cbpr is distinct from

CBPR is distinct from…..

  • Community-based research in which the community is engaged as the setting or place of research

  • Community outreach which emphasizes service


Key principles of cbpr

Key Principles of CBPR

  • Recognizes the shared roles of the community and research institute/university

  • Builds on the strengths and resources within the community

  • Facilitates collaborative, equitable involvement of all partners in all phases of research

  • Integrates knowledge and intervention for mutual benefits of all partners


Key principles of cbpr1

Key principles of CBPR

  • Promotes co-learning and empowering process that addresses social inequalities

  • Involves a cyclical and iterative process

  • Address challenges from both positive and holistic perspectives

  • Disseminates findings and knowledge gained to all partners’ constituents/stakeholders

  • Involves a long-term commitment by all partners


Why use cbpr over more classic research approaches

Why use CBPR over more classic research approaches?

  • Addresses the needs of the community

  • Enhances local relevance of the approach

  • Enhances acceptability of the approach

  • Builds local skills and assumedly would improve sustainability of an intervention


Cbpr faces methodological challenges

CBPR faces methodological challenges

  • Who is the community?

  • Who represents the community (McKenna et al. 2011)

  • Differential partner goals: knowledge production vs improving programs

  • Time

  • Integrating different skills and “ways of knowing” (e.g., problem solving)

  • Are communities ready? (Readiness Tool 2010)

  • Are researchers ready?


Cbpr faces philosophical challenges

CBPR faces philosophical challenges

  • Balance of power and privilege between the community and university partners

  • Tribal community context (e.g., priority of outcome application, need for research capacity) (Fisher and Ball 2005)

  • Institutional Review Board (IRB) process

    • Community members are researchers

    • Expertise of the IRB review?
