Community-Based Research: Teaching for Community Impact is like an operation manual to move from the publish-or-perish doctrine to conducting real-world research, which can make significant differences to where you work, live, and play. CBR can be a powerful conduit to improving the well-being of the community, while simultaneously educating all the various individuals engaged in the resolution of an issue or problem. Collaboration, communication, synergism, innovation, respect, and transparency are identified as key components for transformative change on a large scale. The authors drill to the epicenter of identifying targets for change, decisions being made, and moves outward to the valid measurement for long-term, sustainable change within the community."--Margo DeMont, PhD, Executive Director"Community Health Enhancement, Memorial Hospital of South Bend, Indiana" (09/01/2016)
