AIR-P Presents: Involving Community Partners in Autism Research

Title: AIR-P Presents: Involving Community Partners in Autism Research
Date & Time: Aug 16, 2022 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Location: Zoom

Involving community partners in the design, execution and dissemination of research yields more impactful studies that address the priorities of the communities being studied, and benefits researchers, healthcare providers and target communities. This presentation will review the principles of Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR), discuss its late arrival to the field of autism research highlighting the ongoing contributions of AASPIRE, and review US government support of patient centered research through PCORI funding. We will illustrate the benefits of collaborating with community partners by presenting a project in which a team of researchers and a team of autistic community advocates are co-producing autism research.

Toipics will include: 

  • Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) benefits community participants, health care providers and researchers alike
  • Community partners participate in all aspects of a research study and contribute to the development of culturally appropriate instruments, sensitive recruitment methods.
  • Community partners receive compensation for their work and contribute to publications, and public presentations.
  • Resulting research reveals a deeper understanding of the uniqueness of the communities studied, and a more accurate framework for testing and adapting healthcare interventions to community needs.
