use of community based participatory research cbpr
Use of community-based participatory research (CBPR)
  • CBPR is a “collaborative approach to research that equitably involves all partners in the research process and recognizes the unique strengths that each brings.” (W. K. Kellogg Foundation)
    • Begins with a research topic of importance to the community
    • Has the aim of combining knowledge with action and achieving social change to improve health outcomes and eliminate health disparities
  • The Consortium has strived to involve community members, stakeholder agencies, and academics as equal partners in the research and implementation process since its inception.
