- Toolkit for Developing Community Partnerships
The Southern California CTSI supports community-engaged research that brings researchers, clinicians and the community together to share their knowledge, skills and resources with a common goal of improving the health of Los Angeles communities. This toolkit is intended to be a resource for researchers, health care providers and the community who are interested in conducting community-engaged research. This community partnership toolkit outlines the process and approach needed during every phase of a project (e.g. relationship building, proposal development, project execution and dissemination).
- Tips and Tricks for Successful Research Recruitment
A toolkit for a community-based approach: whether you are conducting a traditional clinical trial or a trial in the community, there are common strategies you should consider when recruiting participants for research.

Subsequently, it will provide specific recommendations for large clinical trials, and the use of social media as well and community-based research. It will also address recruitment challenges and keys to high retention. This toolkit aims to develop greater capacity and success in research participant recruitment, particularly in the recruitment of underrepresented populations such as ethnic minorities.
- Community Advisory Board Toolkit
Resource for integrating community voices into a research study: more and more, grant proposals are requesting researchers to ensure that they have worked with or plan to integrate the community into their research proposal. One approach to this is to develop a community advisory board (CAB) who can provide feedback into all aspects of your research study including:developing research questions:
- developing recruitment plans;
- reviewing study assessments or procedures;
- discussing ethical considerations around your research;
- providing different perspectives into the data interpretation; and/or
- considering non-traditional dissemination methods.
This toolkit is intended to assist researchers in navigating the processes of developing and establishing a community advisory board (CAB) for their research studies. Practical tips and step-by-step guidelines are provided.
