The Community Engagement Core ensures that community engagement occurs across the full spectrum of clinical and translational research. The Core is also closely allied with the Health Research Implementation Core to enhance community engagement with research that impacts health care. The Core works with The Bronx Health Link (TBHL) to expand collaborations and engagement with the Bronx community and healthcare partners. It helps advance life span, child health, and aging research across genders and special populations, by working with the Bronx Community Research Review Board (BxCRRB).
The goals of the Community and Stakeholder Engagement core are to:
- Provide Community Engagement expertise for established and new investigators and research teams at Einstein-Montefiore
- Collaborate with the BxCRRB to expand its consultation and review with investigators, and test other models of community engagement
- Build on our own and other CTSA-developed methodologies to evaluate the impact of collaboration and stakeholder-engaged team science with additional qualitative and quantitative analyses.
These goals are closely aligned with the objective of NCATS to create infrastructure to engage communities with research projects and to advance the science of community-engaged research. We will use the CTSA to develop best practices, enduring curricula and other materials, and provide consultations on how to engage communities.
