Building Trust Education Programs
MetadataShow full item record
One of the main goals set forth by the Building Trust project was to create training and educational programs designed to increase the participation of minorities in public health research by empowering them to become informed decision makers, and to strengthen the capacity of researchers and community members to work effectively with each other.
Our team has developed three unique education programs designed to achieve this goal. Enhancing Minority Engagement in Research is a facilitator-led program designed to enable minority community members to engage with health and medical research and to make informed decisions about participating in research. Becoming a Self-Reflective Researcher: Successfully Engaging Minority Communities is also facilitator-led, and is designed to strengthen the capacity of researchers, health professionals and IRB members to effectively recruit and retain minority participants in researchers. Building Trust between Minority and Researchers Online is a web-based, interactive adaptation of Enhancing Minority Engagement in Research, and can serve as a resource for both community members and researchers with their community partners.
