CBPR model

Welcome to our Interactive - CBPR Conceptual Model!

The CBPR conceptual model in color above is our current Engage for Equity model.  The interactive features shown below uses an older version of the model and provides information about the initial literature review that supported the constructs and variables for the RIH study within each domain of the conceptual model.

"Research for Improved Health: A National Study of Community-University Partnerships", was an earlier National Institutes of Health study, funded first as a pilot in 2006-2009; and secondly as a study to investigate the promoters and barriers to effective CBPR, funded through the Native American Research Centers for Health, National Institutes for Health and Indian Health Service (2009-2013). Our research has resulted in a CBPR Conceptual Model; and instrument and variable matrices for information and questionnaire items which may be useful for evaluating CBPR and Community Engaged Research (CEnR) partnerships and for assessing their characteristics.

Please see the information below on how to use these matrices. Please note that the reference links within the tables are disabled, though the references are still listed.  Our current Engage for Equity study is updating the literature and measures and metrics of partnering practices and outcomes and the variable matrix will be updated in the future.

How to use our Interactive CBPR Model:

1) Navigate using the choices below, select either "Instrument Matrix" or "Variable Matrix", 3) then select dimensions within our CBPR model for downloadable materials for i) Context, ii) Dynamics and iii) Outcomes; by waiving your mouse/pointer over model dimensions or model regions and 5) click to download searchable Adobe pdf format files. You have two choices in navigating the CBPR model:
