DDHA 8426 - Advanced Application of Practice-based Research in Health


(5 cr.) The goal of this course is to provide participants with an understanding of the methods and principles of applied research (quantitative, qualitative, and/or mixed-method designs) in health, focusing on cultural sensitivity, appropriate literacy levels, and Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR). Students gain an appreciation of advantages and limitations of this approach, as well as the skills necessary for participating effectively in CBPR projects. Additional topics include the role of funding in health research and principles of community health assessment. Students learn to identify and prioritize problems, and then assess and utilize community resources to address these problems. Students also develop their doctoral study premise.
