Community-engaged research is characterized by its inclusion of patient and community stakeholders as partners in developing, implementing, and evaluating research. For research teams seeking to partner with patients and community stakeholders, there are many key considerations to keep in mind to ensure that partnerships are equitable and mutually beneficial. Northwestern’s Center for Community Health (CCH) has an array of resources to help research teams develop and implement projects involving patient and community stakeholders.
