 CCPH Needs Your Thoughts on Including Community & Cultural Considerations in Human Research Protections! 

If you are interested in community-engaged research and/or research ethics, Community Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) seeks your feedback on how to revise the Belmont Report and U.S. Department of Health & Human and Services research ethics regulations (the Common Rule) to better account for individual and community considerations.

A recently published CES4Health product, Redefining Research Ethics Review: Case Studies of Five Community-Led Models, highlights case studies of five community-based processes for research ethics review.  Community-engaged research represents a shift from traditional research approaches that identified individual community members as research subjects to engaging with community members and the organizations that represent or serve them as research partners and participants. Researchers and communities have grown dissatisfied with the regulations designed to protect the rights and welfare of individual study participants, arguing that such regulations do not sufficiently consider community interests.
