This manual is meant as a guide, a primer, for the community worker whose partnership is integral to the community-based research model. The material is presented in a “user-friendly” format, providing a clear review of today’s community research environment. The reader will find a discussion of reasearch and its benefits, techniques to create the best research team and adviors, how to conduct a project, and the importance of appropriate sharing of the results with the participants, the community, and the healthcare field.
