Community-Based Participatory Research with Hispanic/Latino Leaders and Members
Amendola, Mary Grace
Qualitative Report, v18 Article 11 2013
Hispanic/Latinos (H/L) are being studied for healthcare disparities research utilizing community-based participatory research (CBPR). CBPR's active participation of community members and researchers suggests improvement in community health. Yet there are no known studies that inductively investigated the lived experience of H/L community leaders and members with CBPR using interpretive phenomenology. Data were obtained from observations, field notes, biographical interviews, individual interviews and focus groups. The findings supported that community members wanted to collaborate with researchers utilizing the CBPR approach so that culturally sensitive interventions can be created to encourage health-seeking behaviors in their community.
