Urban Health Summer Institute - Community-Based Participatory Research
June 24, 2019 through June 28, 2019
1:30 PM-5:00 PM
Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is an orientation to research that begins with community research interests and seeks to use the knowledge gained to inform action for community health improvements and social change. Although this approach to research is widely adopted in urban health and generally familiar to both community-based organizations and researchers, many still struggle with the lack of knowledge or experience with applying practical CBPR approaches to a pressing community health issue or potential research partnership.
This course will review the history and principles of CBPR, and introduce participants to practical approaches and tools for equitable and authentic community-researcher engagement in all phases of research: from the creation of research questions, to study design, data collection, data analysis, and dissemination. Participants will also learn strategies for participatory grant-writing, budgeting, and opportunities for workforce development and capacity building for community residents and leaders in research. This course welcomes researchers and community-based organizations as participants.
