LOBDELL, D. T. AND A. ALAKOYE. FINAL WHITE PAPER: ASSESSMENT OF EXISTING LINKAGES WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES AMONG POTENTIAL RESEARCH SITES FOR THE NATIONAL CHILDREN'S STUDY. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-05/013, 2005.

Description:

This paper was prepared to assist the planners of the National Childrens Study (NCS) as they assess possible study design options and consider the role of the community in this initiative. The consensus among the planners is to involve the community in the conduct of the< study. What is not yet clear is how, to what level and at what capacity, the community will be involved. To answer those questions, the NCS planners will need to understand potential strengths and weaknesses of a study design that depends on community involvement and the< level and type of support that local study sites would need to be able to work with the

communities. In response to the planner's need to learn more about community-based research (CBR), RTI International (RTI) conducted a literature review and searched the Internet for information< on the status of community-based research in the United States today. In this report, we identify the methods used to gather the information to develop the white paper. We are attaching the bibliography of relevant material in Appendix A and the references used in the< white paper in Appendix B.

Purpose/Objective:

To assist the planners of the National Children's Study as they assess possible study design options
