Community Based Participatory Research

Participatory Research at McGill (PRAM)

Mission: To further scholarship and promote the knowledge, expertise and training for participatory research in health care.

Participatory Research is an approach to conducting research where researchers are in partnership with the intended users of the research - which may be patients, health professionals, organizations, policy makers, community members or entire communities. The Royal Society of Canada has defined participatory research as systematic investigation, with the collaboration of those affected by the issue being studied, for purposes of education and taking action or effecting social change. The equally important goals of participatory research are to answer important health questions and benefit the partners in the research process, while developing valid knowledge that is applicable to other settings. Furthermore, participatory research integrates knowledge translation (KT) by involving those who need to act on the results as full partners throughout the process. The Canadian Institutes of Health Research have identified KT as a major priority, and propose integrated KT as a favourable means of achieving it.
