As interest in community-based participatory research (CBPR) grows, there is a growing need and demand for educational resources that help build the knowledge and skills needed to develop and sustain effective CBPR partnerships.  This evidence-based curriculum is intended as a tool for community-institutional partnerships that are using or planning to use a CBPR approach to improving health.  It can be used by partnerships that are just forming as well as mature partnerships.   For an overview of the curriculum, click here.  The table of contents appears below.

We welcome and encourage your comments and suggestions on the curriculum. We would also like to learn how you have used the curriculum and how it may have contributed to your understanding and practice of CBPR. Our hope is that the curriculum will serve as a valued resource, continually improved over time.  To share your thoughts with us, please take a few minutes to email us your feedback.

We invite you to stay connected with us and with colleagues who share your interest in CBPR. Join the free CBPR listserv http://mailman.u.washington.edu/mailman/listinfo/cbpr today!
