Canadian Community-Based Research Skill-Building Institute for Partnership Teams

Applications are available and due on May 5, 2006.

This interactive skill-building institute will guide participants in
initiating, developing and sustaining community-based research (CBR)
partnerships. The institute will combine experiential and didactic
approaches to teaching and learning. Central to the institute design is
a mentoring model in which participants will work in small groups and
as partnership teams with mentors to further shape their own action
plans for partnership development and sustainability.

To facilitate meaningful learning, the institute will be limited in
size to a maximum of 30 participants. Participants will apply as teams
of at least one community partner and one institutional partner. At
least one partner must be based in Canada. Teams sponsored to
participate will be both committed to the goals of the institute and
representative of the diversity of disciplines and institutions/
organizations involved in community-institutional partnerships for
prevention research in Canada.

Successful teams will be fully funded for the duration of their stay at the institute.

Please note: The Ontario HIV Treatment Network is financially
supporting three Ontario-based partnership teams that focus on HIV and
the social determinants of health.  OHTN will sponsor the complete
costs of these teams' travel.  For more information contact Tarik
