A Healthier Balance of Expertise: An Innovative Model for Community-University Alliances in Health Research
AbstractAs a research model, the Healthy Balance Research Program stands as a successful alliance between researchers, community organizations and policymakers. Its advisory bodies (equity-seeking populations and policymakers) provide checks and balances to traditional academic research structures, and overall help ensure information uptake and community engagement with unpaid caregivers in Nova Scotia. Résumé En tant que modèle de recherche le Healthy Balance Research Program est vu comme une alliance avec succès entre les chercheurs, les organismes communautaires, et les décisionnaires. Ses comités consultatifs (population et les décisionnaires qui recherchent l'équité) offre les contrôles des structures de recherches académiques traditionnelles, et en général aide à assurer la distribution de l'information et l'engagement de la collectivité avec les personnes qui ne sont pas payées pour donner des soins à un proche en Nouvelle-Écosse.
