Methods in Community–Based Participatory Research for Health

Written by distinguished experts in the field, this book shows how researchers, practitioners, and community partners can work together to establish and maintain equitable partnerships using a Community–Based Participatory Research (CBPR) approach to increase knowledge and improve health and well–being of the communities involved. What distinguishes CBPR from other approaches to research is the active engagement of all partners in the process. This book provides a comprehensive and thorough presentation of CBPR study designs, specific data collection and analysis methods, and innovative partnership structures and process methods. This book informs students, practitioners, researchers, and community members about methods and applications needed to conduct CBPR in the widest range of research areas including social determinants of health, health disparities, health promotion, community interventions, disease management, health services, and environmental health.

"This book is a major contribution to the public health field. The editors are some of our most outstanding leaders in community–based participatory research."

From the Foreword by David Satcher, M.D., Ph.D., interim president, Morehouse School of Medicine; 16th U.S. Surgeon General

"Missing from the emerging field of university–community partnerships is a broad–based discussion of methods for partnership formation and sustainability. This must–have edited volume is an important contribution to building the field. Based on federally–funded collaborative research with multiple community stakeholders, it offers readers across disciplines and sectors a set of conceptual and practical tools and case materials for application and teaching."

Jean J. Schensul, Ph.D., senior scientist and founding director, Institute for Community Research
