Community-Campus Partnerships for Health has partnered with the University of New Mexico Center for Participatory Research, the University of Washington, The National Indian Child Welfare Association, University of Waikato NZ, Rand Corporation and a Think Tank of Community and Academic CBPR Practitioners to continue the development of measures and metrics of community based participatory research (CBPR) and Community Engaged Research (CEnR) practices and outcomes.

“Engage for Equity (E 2 ): Advancing Community-Engaged Partnerships,” is a five-year RO1 grant funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR/NIH) that builds upon 10 years of best practices research. The E 2 grant seeks to further test a CBPR conceptual model, refine metrics and measures of partnering practices and outcomes, translate these measures into Spanish, finalize evaluation scales and instruments for widespread use, and produce partnership training guides and an evaluation toolkit. The collaborating partners on this grant hope to further strengthen the science behind partnering practices to promote effective CBPR and CEnR partnerships to improve health equity.

“Engage for Equity” will be inviting federally-funded partnerships to take an internet-based survey on your perceptions of your collaborations in the summer of 2016. We will then conduct a training intervention in 2017, inviting partnerships through a randomized design to trainings in Albuquerque on effective use of evaluation and reflection tools, as compared to partnerships with access to evaluation tools on our websites. We look forward to your participation.
