Abstract:
Purpose: To provide an interdisciplinary forum to explore community research and the key role of research users in program development, implementation and evaluation. Background: A group of international leaders in infant, child and youth health will share their perspectives and experiences, emphasizing evidence-based practice and collaboration with community partners. In combination, this team brings a wealth of research experience, and an interdisciplinary perspective along with the viewpoints of medicine, nursing, social work and health promotion. Community research can inform and shape risk reduction and intervention programs in infant, child and youth health. Moreover, participatory research approaches contribute to knowledge application in practice, as well as program effectiveness and sustainability over time. An overview of the common research mission will set the stage for an examination of research approaches, interventions, outcomes and lessons learned for selected issues affecting infant and youth populations. Consideration will be given to relevance and potential application in other settings. Design: The following topics will be explored: 1) Community-based Participatory Research for the Prevention of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder; 2) Infant Crying as a Window for Community Prevention of Shaken Baby Syndrome; 3) Shaken Baby Syndrome: Risk Factors, Dynamics, Incidence and Outcomes -Who Shakes Babies and Why It Is So Dangerous?; 4) Community Coalitions and Research to Help Sexually Exploited, Among Girls in the USA - System Change Through Collaboration. Conclusion: The challenge remains to integrate new knowledge into effective and wide-spread preventions programs for risk reduction and improved health outcomes.
