Community-based research (CBR) is a collaborative process from start to finish. CBR is a practice that places community partnerships at the forefront, and is marked by the principles of collaboration, positive social change and inclusion.
For a great overview on what CBR is please check out the Universities Without Walls — CBR 101 Modules these are e-learning modules covering things like: What is CBR; Ethics Review; Informed Consent; and Grant Writing.
These resources provide information on the various stages of community-based research, from partnership building to knowledge translation. Like CBR itself, it is a work in process.
PAN’s Research and Evaluation Treehouse: here we share resources that can be helpful for both evaluation and research. Building on the tree metaphor – the Treehouse sits on the limbs between both the Research and the Evaluation Tree and provides a space for us to come together to learn and build our capacity in both of these areas.
