Essential Health Communication Practices in Community-Based Participatory Research
November 2, 2023
Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is a research approach that involves collaboration between researchers and community members to identify research questions, design and conduct studies and translate findings into actions that benefit the community. Scientists, academic researchers, public health professionals, and community leaders increasingly rely on CBPR to address health conditions that disproportionately affect groups that have been economically and socially marginalized. The CBPR approach acknowledges the importance of cultural context, historical factors, and community expertise in addressing complex health issues and promoting social change.
