Author information

  • 1University of California, San Francisco, School of Nursing, USA.


Community partnerships have been recognized as the cornerstone of community research. The recent Institute of Medicine report, Unequal Treatment, puts forth the idea of creating community partnerships as a strategy to address racial and ethnic disparities in health care. Community-based research is frequently reported in the literature as a study conducted in the community versus with the community. The objective of this review is to examine models of community partnerships, to consider their implications for community-based research, and to identify directions for future nursing research.
