Abstract:
Community Partnerships: Learning the Process
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Boyle, Joyceen S., PhD, RN, FAAN
P.I. Institution Name:University of Arizona
Title:Associate Dean for Academic Affairs
Co-Authors:Jeannette O. Andrews, MSN, RN, CS, FNP, ACNP
Objective: To explore and analyze processes of developing and maintaining community partnerships and community capacity. Population: African-American families residing in low-income housing developments in the South. Method: A critical review of the investigators’ research experiences during the past decade through journals, field notes, and relevant literature on community partnerships/community capacity. Findings: Common themes in fostering community partnerships include establishing trust, mutual engagement, sustained presence and economic support. Within such contexts, processes that enhance partnerships are explored and analyzed. Findings are presented on shaping the appropriate partnership model, identifying effective recruitment and retention strategies, developing incentive programs and addressing cultural competence in interactions with the community. Implications: Developing effective and sustained community partnerships and building community capacity among low-income African American communities is vital to promote health and to reduce health disparities within this population. Multiple challenges exist for investigators, community members and health professionals to build and maintain community partnerships. The identification, understanding and attention to these processes will promote community capacity and bridge long-term relationships with our communities.
