In Episode 001: The HPV Game Changer, we talk about Community Based Participatory Research (CPBR) and cancer prevention. Following are a few resources we found on the history and tenants of CBPR:
- The CBPR efforts that led to the creation of Patnè en Aksyon are outlined in this study from our Episode 001 guest Erin Kobetz and her colleagues.
- A favorite of mine — this article in Advances in Nursing Science provides an elegant description of how CBPR was implemented to address elderly abuse in a Native American community.
- Nina Wallerstein and Betty Duran outlined the ways CBPR helps moves research out of ivory towers and into communities. They also wrote a textbook with fellow researchers Meredith Minkler and John Oetzel.
- Unit 1 of this curriculum developed by a team representing nine organizations and funded in part by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides a concise overview of the history of the CBPR approach as well as a handy chart comparing CBPR to the traditional research model.
- CBPR’s funding challenges are discussed here.
