The purpose of this study is to develop a culturally sensitive intervention focused on health literacy that is designed to reduce high blood pressure (HBP) in a vulnerable African American (AA) population. A community-based participatory research approach delivered by community health workers (CHW) will be used to address the following specific aims: Aim 1. To examine the effect of health literacy on self-care skills, including HBP knowledge, adherence to HBP and substance abuse treatment recommendations, communication skills, health care utilization, and BP outcomes in AAs with HBP. Aim 2. To conduct a pilot randomized, controlled trial with a delayed intervention control group to test the effectiveness of a health literacy-focused self-help HBP intervention program using CHWs in 100 AAs who reside in Baltimore City ...
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.

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 ...
Sponsored by the Kellogg Foundation, is a project spearheaded by The Harambee House, Inc / Citizens for Environmental Justice (HH/CFEJ) that is helping communities engage in Community-based Participatory Research (CBRP).. The project focused its initial research on violence and its correlation with environmental factors such as indoor/outdoor air pollution, lead, asbestos and mold in homes. It is working to mobilize community stakeholders (i.e. youth, residents, academic institutions, neighborhood leaders, public policy makers and elected officials) to identity local concerns and find solutions to their identified problems.. ...

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 ,.

This thesis explores the impact of stigma on women in New Zealand living with HIV through the use of co-operative inquiry, an innovative, participatory, action-based and somewhat revolutionary, research method. Through the process of sharing experiences, reflection and discussion, participants were encouraged to learn to interpret meaning and gain a better understanding of their world. This process lead to personal transformations and consciousness-raising for all those who took part.. ...
A central focus of this project will be the development of practice recommendations, the dissemination of findings to community stakeholders, and public education. The TCHCP has previously published six articles documenting program outcomes and will submit project findings for publication. Team members regularly present at workshops and conferences, including an annual two-day training event which brings all of the 16 community-based, multidisciplinary provincial HCV treatment teams together. Findings from this project will be shared at this event and other relevant meetings/conferences. A plain language report will be created and shared with front line workers and people living with/at risk for HCV at a workshop event(s) held at least one of the programs Health Centres. Findings will be disseminated through the South Riverdale Community Health Centre newsletter for people who use drugs. The TCHCP will use its established network of professional contacts to arrange meetings with health care ...

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.. "That £20bn of savings is being enacted as we speak, and it is not going to be managed without some very big decisions. That kind of change without engaging communities … ...
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 ...
