OverviewCommunity-Based Collaborative Action Research: A Nursing Approach provides a clear framework for an action research process to improve health outcomes and enact needed systems improvement. The authors bring years of experience in community-based collaborative action research (CBCAR) to demonstrate how nursing and other health care practitioners, leaders, and scholars can transform communities by identifying and addressing systemic and structural barriers to health and well-being. These communities can range from neighborhoods, practice environments, and villages to boardrooms and organizations. Ideal for novice and experienced researchers, including graduate and doctoral students involved in research initiatives and capstone projects, this rigorous text is a non-prescriptive, step-by-step guide to enacting meaningful change that emerges primarily from within the community. Rooted in social justice and advocacy and driven by theory and evidence-based practice, Community-Based Collaborative Action Research: A Nursing Approach is a unique and innovative resource.
