Evaluating a community-based participatory research project for elderly mental healthcare in rural America. (8/736)

The purpose of this evaluation was to explore the collaborative nature of partners in a rural mental health program for the elderly, and to test an adapted method of assessing the collaborative process. Sixteen collaborative partners were interviewed to explore ratings of collaboration across 6 domains identified as critical to participatory research. Results indicate that the context of rural Missouri and uniqueness of the program necessitated an approach to collaboration that began with a top-down approach, but greater community responsibility developed over time. Partners recognized the efforts of the program's directors to seek input. Most were satisfied with their roles and the degree of success achieved by the program, although several wanted to have more input in the future in some domains, but not in others. Interviews revealed numerous barriers to achieving sustainability. Methods to improve the assessment of collaboration are discussed and areas for improvement are offered.  (+info)

The United Kingdom leads the way in service user-led research,1 in large part because many funding agencies require it.2 Theory, research, and the so-called "evidence-based practice" in the United States lag far behind those by our colleagues in the United Kingdom. In the United States, the traditional funding structures of the National Institutes of Health and the like are generally not inclusive of patients or health service users as leaders and collaborators. Although there have been some requests for proposals for community-based participatory research projects, they are few and far between and they do not always require true leadership of patients or service users.. Although funding for community-based participatory studies is limited, some US-based researchers3,4 approach knowledge development using these methods, which have been especially useful for phenomena of concerns of traditionally underrepresented or vulnerable populations. My own community-based participatory research on the ...

Purpose: American Indian (AI) women have lower rates of cancer, but later stages of diagnosis and higher mortality than the US general population. We hypothesized that mediators found within different theoretical models of health behavior differentiate women who adhere to mammographic screening guidelines from those who do not. Such mediators may be useful in the design of interventions to increase adherence.. Experimental Procedures: As a community-based participatory research project, tribal health, Indian Health Service representatives, and community representatives worked with the Mayo Clinic team to design a survey derived from 53 interviews with documented adherent and non-adherent women from one Bemidji Area tribe. The survey explored demographic characteristics and six theoretical mediators: Health Literacy, Social Networks, Planned Behavior, Social Norms, Social Support, and Health Beliefs. The survey was mailed to 1200 women with the goal of obtaining 600 responses. Women completing ...
The proposed project is part of a program of research to improve management of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) through a community-academic partnership that addresses cultural factors in disease management. Specific aims are to: 1. Strengthen a community-academic partnership with the immigrant Chinese community in San Francisco to improve diabetes management; 2. Adapt and test a behavioral diabetes intervention, Coping Skills Training, to addresses family and cultural issues in immigrant Chinese patients with T2DM; and 3. Disseminate the adapted Coping Skills Training Program findings via the community-academic partnership to the immigrant Chinese American community through service programs, ethnic media, and professional/scientific publications. A mixed-methods CBPR approach will be used to interpretively adapt a behavioral intervention to be culturally appropriate, and test its efficacy using a repeated measures design. Two historically significant social service and health agencies serving immigrant ...
The historical roots of CBPR generally trace back to the development of participatory action research by Kurt Lewin and Orlando Fals Borda, and the popular education movement in Latin America associated with Paulo Freire.[3][4] In CBPR projects, the community participates fully in all aspects of the research process.[5] CBPR projects start with the community. Community is often self-defined, but general categories of community include geographic community, community of individuals with a common problem or issue, or a community of individuals with a common interest or goal. CBPR encourages collaboration of "formally trained research" partners from any area of expertise, provided that the researcher provide expertise that is seen as useful to the investigation by the community, and be fully committed to a partnership of equals and producing outcomes usable to the community. Equitable partnerships require sharing power, resources, credit, results, and knowledge, as well as a reciprocal appreciation ...
By Minkler, Meredith Hammel, Joy; Gill, Carol J; Magasi, Susan; Vasquez, Victoria Breckwich; Bristo, Marca; Coleman, Diane From 1997 to 2003, Illinois was spending approximately 80% of its long-term care budget on nursing homes and institutional care and was facing significant challenges to its long-term care delivery and the need to rebalance toward community-based supports for people with disabilities. A case-based program evaluation was done to analyze Moving Out of the Nursing Home to the Community, a community- based participatory research (CBPR) project. The Chicago-based project documented the experiences and concerns of 200 disabled people attempting to transition out of nursing homes to least restrictive community living, actively involving participants in an empowerment and systems and policy change program. The authors describe the partnership between the University of Illinois at Chicago and two centers for independent living; the projects research, policy-related goals, and ...

As a medical anthropologist and health services researcher, I leverage quantitative and qualitative data to learn more about social, cultural, economic and political factors that influence access to treatment. My research focuses on vulnerable, low-income people living with substance use disorder, behavioral health conditions, and chronic disease. In these studies, I use in-depth interviews to obtain personal histories and uncover contextual factors, such as social support, which influence physical and mental health. I have been principal investigator/lead evaluator on a series of quality improvement studies of enrollees in a Medicaid managed-care insurance program for individuals with substance use and behavioral health conditions. I have also led numerous qualitative interview studies and have been co-investigator on NIH-funded studies with qualitative research components. My community-based research has promoted the growth and sustainability of academic-community partnerships and initiatives ...
Community-based participatory research and practice (CBPRP) has emerged as a core discipline in behavioral and social science departments within schools of public health. CBPRP is a collaborative process of research and practice that includes both researchers and community representatives. Communities are generally defined as those that share a unit of identity (e.g. social ties, geographical locations). The CBPRP process involves engaging community members, using local knowledge in the understanding of health problems, and a long-term commitment to partnership. CBPRP is oriented towards holistic interventions informed by social ecology modeling, a widely recognized approach that not only targets knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of individuals, but also includes social factors such as family and friendship ties, community norms, and the structure of community services.. Students in the CBPRP certificate program will be able to 1) demonstrate and practice the basic tenets of community-based ...

The high school students who took part in this research project were those that are typically underrepresented on the campuses of colleges and universities. Underrepresented students may, for one reason or another, be left out of the college-going culture and discussion in their [End Page 57] high schools. They often lack opportunities to engage in the most high-impact educational practices and may be unable to envision themselves in these roles. In preliminary interviews with the scholar-researchers, many indicated that their image of a "researcher" was "a white man in a white lab coat," someone who looked nothing like them or their families, far removed from their worlds. They did not see themselves as potential researchers of any kind, and yet these same students overwhelmingly said "yes" when asked if they would like to participate in a research project, to learn to become researchers, and to devote substantial time and energy to better understanding the problems of college access in their ...

Title: Positive Minds - Strong Bodies: Building Community Capacity for Disability Prevention for Minority Elders. Summary:. Chinese elders represent a rapidly increasing segment of an aging U.S. population, with less access to mental health care, suffering significant disparities in access and quality care, and augmented risk for disability. Fresh approaches are needed that move services into the community to meet potential elder needs in a culturally and linguistically competent environment that is inherently embedded in the clients neighborhood. To address these disparities and prevent disability among Chinese elders, the Positive Minds- Strong Bodies study examines how to successfully build collaborative research for the provision of evidence-based mental health and disability prevention treatments in community-based organizations (CBOs) that serve Chinese elderly clients. This presentation will provide an overview of the mental health burden in Chinese, gaps in mental health services, ...

BACKGROUND: Community engagement has been recognised as an important aspect of the ethical conduct of biomedical research, especially when research is focused on ethnically or culturally distinct populations. While this is a generally accepted tenet of biomedical research, it is unclear what components are necessary for effective community engagement, particularly in the context of genomic research in Africa. METHODS: We conducted a review of the published literature to identify the community engagement strategies that can support the successful implementation of genomic studies in Africa. Our search strategy involved using online databases, Pubmed (National Library of Medicine), Medline and Google scholar. Search terms included a combination of the following: community engagement, community advisory boards, community consultation, community participation, effectiveness, genetic and genomic research, Africa, developing countries. RESULTS: A total of 44 articles and 1 thesis were retrieved of which 38

For me, health is an ecological or holistic positive concept and requires appropriate approaches to research if we are truly to understand how to promote it at the individual, community and policy levels. I am committed to participatory action research (PAR) based on an ecological world view and a principles driven approach to research and knowledge development. This means working with people rather than on them and an eclectic and pragmatic approach to research methods, but with an interest in participatory methods, including visual methods and storytelling. More particularly, it means seeing learning, research/theory and action not as separate entities, but integrated processes of reflexive knowledge development in which all forms of knowledge are valued but also questioned.. To support this, I work with international partners to coordinate both the International Collaboration on Participatory Health Research (ICPHR) and the Collaborative Action Research Network (CARN).. Over the last 15 ...

THRIVE enables communities to determine how to improve health and safety, and promote health equity. It is a framework for understanding how structural drivers, such as racism, play out at the community level in terms of the social-cultural, physical/built, and economic/ educational environments. We call these community-level indicators the community determinants of health. In addition to being a framework, THRIVE is also a tool for engaging community members and practitioners in assessing the status of community determinants, prioritizing them, and taking action to change them in order to improve health, safety, and health equity. As a framework, THRIVE is widely applicable to local, state, and national initiatives to inform policy and program direction. more info ,.

The challenges facing the NHS in England to provide better care and services for patients while making £20bn (€22.8bn; $32.2bn) of savings will not be overcome by amendments to the health bill promised by the government without engaging the public and the community, a leading figure from the not for profit sector has said.. Victor Adebowale, chief executive of the health and social care organisation Turning Point, told a meeting at the Kings Fund that patients feel disengaged from the process of new services opening and other services closing..

At the award event, I spoke about an issue critical to our future - the urgent need to rebuild Stanford Hospital and add capacity to Lucile Packard Childrens Hospital. As the hospitals redevelopment project has been presented to community stakeholders, a strong consensus has emerged in support of it. Residents want to be sure that the hospitals are not a drain on the city purse and do not overwhelm our city infrastructure, which is code for traffic.. The community and the hospitals have just begun a careful review of the proposed project and it is several months before the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will be published. It is disappointing that Mayor Yoriko Kishimotos guest opinion last week makes demands for concessions that seem neither reasonable nor even related to the hospitals. I am certain that many in our community join me in respectfully disagreeing with her point of view.. First, she failed to meaningfully acknowledge the tremendous asset these hospitals are, not only in ...

Remember, drafting the plan is not a linear process. You may find yourself having to return to the research or consultation phases to fill in gaps or re-examine your assumptions.. Often, the lead writer(s) of the plan hold(s) the reins on pulling the various sources of information, collected throughout the process, into a coherent direction. However, the plan writer does not wholly determine the suggested course of action. It is their role to work with the broader planning group to affirm the direction taken and even go back to community stakeholders for further input.. If you consider the key elements of the plan at the same time as building your research and consultation processes, you will be able to develop the content of your plan as you go through the development process, rather than waiting until the end. For instance, it is best to gain input on the vision for the initiative from a broad stakeholder group rather than having the plan writer come up with it on their own, then try to shop ...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) screening saves lives but CRC screening rates remain low among Chinese Americans, the most populous Asian American group. Little is known about how to conduct effective and culturally appropriate community-based health promotion in this ethnic group. Lay Health Worker Outreach (LHWO) is an effective modality to promote some healthy behaviors in some communities, but much remains unknown about this approach and no prior work has been done with Chinese Americans. This proposed project seeks to expand understanding of what constitutes a "lay health worker (LHW)," how those characteristics determine the effectiveness of LHWs as health educators on CRC screening, and the relationship of those characteristics to a particular community and culture. Using quantitative and qualitative methods and a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach, the project will develop and implement a group randomized controlled trial to evaluate LHW effectiveness in promoting CRC ...
In the United States, the Hispanic population suffers from major health disparities relative to non-Hispanic Whites. For example, this population shows low participation rates in cancer screening and other prevention programs, which indicates the need to design cancer educational programs tailored to Hispanics. The health status and health behaviors of todays Hispanic youth will play a central role in shaping the long-term health and health care needs not only of Hispanics in the United States but also of Hispanic at large. Puerto Rico currently has limited opportunities to educate young people on cancer prevention and control. The purpose of this study was to identify cancer prevention education needs, and corresponding education delivery strategies, to be implemented in cancer prevention programs targeting high school students in Puerto Rico.. The study employed a mixed sequential-exploratory design under a Community Based Participatory Research approach (CBPR). As such, cancer prevention ...

American Indian (AI) communities experience disproportionate exposure to stressors and health inequities including type 2 diabetes. Yet, we know little about the role of psychosocial stressors for AI diabetes-related health outcomes. We investigated associations between a range of stressors and psychological, behavioral, and physical health for AIs with diabetes. This community-based participatory research with 5 AI tribes includes 192 AI adult type 2 diabetes patients recruited from clinical records at tribal clinics. Data are from computer-assisted interviews and medical charts. We found consistent bivariate relationships between chronic to discrete stressors and mental and behavioral health outcomes; several remained even after accounting for participant age, gender, and income. Fewer stressors were linked to physical health. We also document a dose-response relationship between stress accumulation and worse health. Findings underscore the importance of considering a broad range of stressors for
Secondary data sources are widely used to measure the built asset environment, although their validity for this purpose is not well-established. Using community-engaged research methodology, this study conducted a census of public-facing, built assets via direct observation and then tested the performance of these data against widely used secondary datasets. After engaging community organizations, a community education campaign was implemented. Using web-enabled cell phones and a web-based application prepopulated with the secondary data, census workers verified, modified, and/or added assets using street-level observation, supplementing data with web searches and telephone calls. Data were uploaded to http://www.SouthSideHealth.org. Using direct observation as the criterion standard, the sensitivity of secondary datasets was calculated. Of 5,773 assets on the prepopulated list, direct observation of public-facing assets verified 1,612 as operating; another 653 operating assets were newly ...

This thesis seeks to answer whether or not the program of participatory budgeting has resulted in improvements in the health and well-being of residents in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, in an attempt to understand how city governance may impact population health. Governance is largely expected to impact health by ensuring efficient and equitable distribution of resources across the population, something that participatory budgeting, a program that democratizes the process of city budgeting, has proven to accomplish effectively. By analyzing participatory budgetings policy design, namely how the program is carried out, as well as its outcomes, or the participatory budgeting projects themselves, this thesis analyzes the impacts of the program on health specifically. This analysis revealed that participatory budgeting is able to impact health by reducing inequalities in income and quality of life and by enhancing social capital in the city, or the ability of a population to work together to achieve communal

Location: Mitchell Hall Theater. Partnerships form the cornerstone of the new University of Delaware Community Engagement Initiative. Education, health, arts and culture are a few of the partnerships that will be developed in collaboration with University, state, and global partners.. We expect that this new initiative will have great benefits for students, faculty, staff and community partners. Community engagement strengthens student learning. Students learn how the knowledge they obtain can improve the communities where they live and work. Even now, more than half of UDs students participate in service learning, community-based research and volunteer projects, donating more than 225,000 hours each year to serve communities in Delaware, across the nation and around the world.. With this new Initiative, even more UD students will participate in civic and community engagement. We want to make community engagement part of the defining character of a University of Delaware education. Community ...

Translation: development needs to be more thoroughly vetted so that a projects impact on things such as roads, mass transit and schools can be properly evaluated-something that, as we have pointed out, Comptroller John Luis public benefits task force also looks to address: "What the task force is proposing is that an independent consultant be made integral to reviewing the development plans-and this consultant would be an advisor to the community stakeholders and the local community board.If implemented, this would mean a predevelopment phase that would allow for a more complete vetting of the projects impact-as well as a greater opportunity to create community coalitions as stakeholders in the land use process. In the consultant, what you would have in theory is a person who can see the development through the eyes of the local community that will be forced to live with whatever impacts the development would have on the surrounding neighborhoods ...
The aim of the study by Aruthur et al was to develop and implement a community based communication and psycho-educational support group for women living with heart disease. Using a participatory action research (PAR) approach, Arthur et al, together with the participants, focused on articulating the informational and emotional needs of women living with heart disease.. The authors are to be commended for creating an awareness of the contextual complexity of the social constructions of how women live with heart disease. This research has revealed that the issues reported for women recovering from cardiac events are different from those reported for men. Researchers often overlook the needs of women living with long term illness.1 Few inquiries have focused on womens perspectives. Only relatively recently has it been acknowledged that the findings of research on men living with chronic illness may not be relevant to women because of the social construction of gender.1,2. The study by Arthur et al ...
10.28.15) A Strong Neighborhood grantee Neighborhood Connections brings together residents, local businesses, congregations, families and other neighborhood stakeholders in order to build a network that provides mutual support, works collectively on issues, and connects to important and timely information.. Recently, the organization sponsored Greater Buckeye Network Night @ East End. The Neighbor UP network featured at the event will serve as the "connective tissue" of the community. It is intended to create opportunities for people to build trust across geographic, racial, class and community-institutional barriers; to support one another; to act together on systemic issues; to create a sense of co-ownership among residents; and to connect people to opportunities and resources. Through The Neighbor UP Network, individuals, families and community stakeholders will achieve a greater sense of ownership of their community and forge greater opportunities for success.. ...

Despite the growing number of culturally sensitive training models and considerable literature on the importance of training clinicians in larger contextual issues, research examining how students learn to apply these issues is limited. In this participatory action research project, we systematically studied our own process as marriage and family therapy (MFT) practicum students developing a contextual consciousness. Using grounded theory, we identified a three-stage process: (a) raised awareness through clinical experimentation and developing a theoretical rationale, (b) reflective questioning involving challenging old perspectives and experiencing positive client-therapist interactions, and (c) an intentional new lens based on personal responsibility and commitment. Creating and maintaining a contextual lens required a safe, empowering group dynamic and accessing other forms of support and accountability after the practicum. ...

Food and mealtimes should be adapted to the older persons individual needs and desires, a fact that is often ignored in favour of a functional mealtime organisation. This study was grounded in participatory action research (PAR), and the aim of the study was to illuminate a PAR process to assist care providers in constructively dealing with their troubled conscience generated from perceived shortcomings in providing an individualised meal schedule in residential care for older people. Care providers and their manager participated in twelve PAR sessions. The participants troubled conscience was eased by reflecting on and sharing their thoughts about their perception of a lack of individualised meal schedule and a lack of opportunities for meaningful interventions. The researchers in PAR became the bridge between the care providers and the management that was needed to improve individualised mealtime schedule. This study pinpoints how difficult it can be to make small changes in a rigid ...
Urban lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community research in sociology has largely ignored LGBTQ communities in the most common urban form: small cities. In this article, I argue that LGBTQ communities in small cities are an underexplored source of theory making about LGBTQ communities more broadly, and I highlight the ways such research enhances LGBTQ community research. I first discuss a definitional framework of LGBTQ communities in small cities. In other words, what do we mean by small cities, and what do we mean by LGBTQ communities within them? ...
