This manual serves as a “how-to” resource for researchers, practitioners, advocates, policy makers, and community members interested in the use of community-based participatory research (CBPR) to inform practice and policy. It conveys the experiences and lessons learned from a CBPR project conducted in the field of assisted living, with the partners being the Center for Excellence in Assisted Living (CEAL) and the University of North Carolina (UNC). The manual explains the principles and methods of CBPR gleaned from experts across the country, and illustrates and expands these points with examples from the CEAL-UNC medication administration collaborative research project.
