About This Course

Community-based research projects are equitable partnerships undertaken by academics, community members, community organizations and policy makers. Members meaningfully contribute their expertise and collaboratively make decisions about the conduct of research to address a locally identified health challenge. Highlighting various stages in a community-based research project, this course introduces core principles, concepts, and issues/challenges. Community-based research methods, lessons, and examples will be presented to assist students to evaluate appropriate methods and their application for research practice settings.
