To help maximize the real-world applicability of available research findings, there has been greater emphasis over the past two decades on engaging local communities in the research process; this includes cooperative study design, shared cultural competencies, and equitable capacity building. This equitable  flow of information ensures these partnerships provide an authentic way to share knowledge and skills that explicitly relate to where they live and/ or work.

 

A key part of this is the ongoing focus on eliminating individual and systematic level racism in clinical, research and educational processes. This is an ongoing process that involves a willingness to learn about, and begin, undoing, the adverse impact of racism on individuals, organizations, and communities.
