Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) is an applied approach that enables community residents to more actively participate in the full spectrum of research with a goal of influencing change in community health, systems, programs or policies. Researchers partner with the community to develop models and approaches to building communication, trust and capacity, with the final goal of increasing community participation in the research process. This collaborative approach to research equitably involves all partners in the research process and recognizes the unique strengths that each brings.
Are you any of the following?:
- Interested in learning more about CBPR?
- A potential applicant to NIH CBPR Funding Opportunity Announcements?
- A researcher or community representative seeking to engage in CBPR?
- Employed in an agency likely to support CBPR?
If so, join us on February 29th for a full-day workshop and learn how best to leap into the community. The purpose of this technical assistance workshop is to both highlight the advancements of CBPR and facilitate the CBPR Funding Opportunity Announcements released on January 16, 2008 (PA-08-074, PAR-08-075, and PAR-08-076).
Presenters will include NIH Program Directors and Chiefs, members of the NIH CBPR Scientific Interest Group (SIG), Director of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Shortage Designation Branch, and two pairs of successful CBPR partners. NIH staff will describe CBPR and discuss topics including its advantages and presence at NIH, grant writing tips, and how best to prepare a responsive application to the recently released CBPR Funding Opportunity Announcements. Further, presenters will share recommendations for successfully navigating the NIH review process. Presentations will also cover effective CBPR Interventions and the PA-08-074 announcement, Medically Underserved Areas/Populations designations and the PAR-08-075/076 announcements, as well as CBPR partnerships including recommendations on establishing partnerships and how to overcome potential challenges.
