ESAS Keynote: Making Community-Based Participatory Research Work in Health Care


Community-based participatory research (CBPR) involves shared decision making and ownership of all aspects of the research process from all relevant stakeholders. In health care, CBPR aims to translate research findings into practical clinical care to improve the health and quality of life of community members. Ultimately, benefits reach beyond individuals to enhance resources and broader public health. Hear our expert speakers discuss principles and preferred practices for conducting health-related CBPR across a variety of communities, highlighting specific recommendations and case studies.
