Over the past 20 years, amid growing concern over the limitations of traditional health and medical intervention research, Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) had gained substantial interest. Following an overview of CBPR and its core principles and best practices, brief case studies will be used to illustrate its utility in more effectively engaging patients, practitioners, and communities in studying and addressing health problems from diabetes in Indigenous communities to childhood asthma and immigrant worker health. Ethical and methodological challenges in CBPR in health and medicine also will be discussed.
