Abstract:
Background: Community research has the potential to create change at the system level and thereby improve the health of populations. Yet, to achieve this desired outcome, it is necessary to carefully consider the research approach. The methods used to engage communities and work with them will influence the quality of their involvement in the research process and subsequent use of new knowledge to inform change. Design: This workshop will be of interest to conference participants who wish to join with others to explore ways to collaborate with community partners on research and change initiatives. The facilitation team features research leaders in the health field who have extensive experience with community-based research to prevent such problems as Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, Shaken Baby Syndrome and sexual exploitation of children and youth. The team will examine several approaches to community-based research and relate them to specific initiatives and lessons learned in various settings. Examples of topics that will be explored are as follows: Participatory research with aboriginal communities, How research can help foster coalitions, and how coalitions can guide research, How community focus groups changed intervention materials for community education to prevent shaken baby syndrome, The session will be interactive and include short presentations, questions and discussion, and small group dialogue. Table discussions will focus on community-based research approaches, according to participants' interests. The emphasis will be on practical strategies for bringing together key groups to change the context for children, youth and women.
