7 Community-Based Participatory Research
Translation and Implementation of Evidence-Based Practice

Lawrence A. Palinkas

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the use of community-based participatory research (CBPR) methods in conducting research on the effectiveness, dissemination, and implementation of evidence-based practices. It begins with a presentation of the principles and practice of CBPR in public health and social work. The use of qualitative and mixed methods in such projects is then profiled, along with a case study of an intervention strategy designed to prevent substance abuse and delinquent behavior in children and adolescents. We then turn to an examination of the challenges involved in using a CBPR approach, including the tensions between academic and community-based partners, differences in organizational cultures, and concerns about the scientific rigor of CBPR methods. We offer solutions to this challenge in the form of a paradigm that promotes cultural exchange among translational research stakeholders. We conclude with a presentation of the infrastructure requirements for using this methodological approach.

Keywords:   scientific rigor, cultural exchange, partnerships, research methods, organizational culture, research infrastructure
