Reflecting on Your Data
Understanding and Reflecting on Your Data:
The data and the corresponding Partnership Data Report, summarizes your team’s responses to the surveys you completed on your group processes and desired outcomes. Please review the responses with the understanding that you are the experts on your partnership and community engaged processes. If you have misplaced your Partnership Data Report and would like another digital copy, please contact CPR@salud.unm.edu or call 505-925-0715.
The data and Partnership Data Report are meant as a resource to generate discussions and ideas. Some ideas may be a good fit for your partnership and environment. Others may not. The purpose of the feedback process is to support collective reflection about your strengths, i.e., what is working well; and practices you may want to sustain or enhance.
We encourage you to use this information as a goal setting exercise. Included are guiding questions to support you in this process, as well as guidance on how to interpret the summary data from your team, as well as tips on how to compare it with the national data from other community-academic partners.
Your Research Project: Part of a National Study
The data comes from Engage for Equity (E2), a national cross-site study of 179 federally-funded CBPR or community-engaged research projects funded in 2015 with two years left of funding. Projects were identified from the NIH RePORTER database.
Principal Investigators or Program Directors were invited to take a Key Informant Survey (KIS) about the facts of your partnership and research project on the internet. Up to five academic team members and community partners were invited to take a different Community Engagement Survey (CES) about your perfections or partnering. The projects who responded were: 59% intervention studies, 6% descriptive, 12% dissemination, 3% policy, and the rest other. The average project length was 2.7 years, and the partnership 6 years. Populations served were: 57% African-American (n=102); 43% white (n=77), 17% Asian (n=32), 31% American Indian / Alaska Native (n=56); 10% Native Hawaiian / Pacific Islander (n=19), and 45% Hispanic / Latino (n=81). Many projects served multi-racial-ethnic groups. Others were %5 LGBTQ (n=9), 9.5% persons with disabilities (n=17), and 13% immigrants / refugees (n=24).
