Community-Based Participatory Research: A Primer
This thirty minute presentation looks at Community-Based Research through its core principles, its history, and how it has been practiced here in Manitoba. After this presentation, participants should understand what it means for research to be community-led, participatory, action oriented, and involve meaningful relationships. Participants will become familiar with some arguments for why Community-Based Research is important, the limitations it faces, and what opportunities are available to do this approach in Manitoba.
