Exploring Patient- Centeredness in Faith Communities
September 17-18, 2021 10:00 AM-4:30 PM
Taking Communities Health beyond CBPR
Hosted at the University of Chicago, in collaboration with Lutheran School of Theology, Program on Medicine and Religion, University of Basel, University of Tubingen, and the University of Chicago Divinity School, this multidisciplinary workshop will initiate conversations between allied health professionals including clinicians and chaplains exploring the religious dimensions of healthcare delivery.
Equipping Muslims with PCOR-Based, Action-Oriented Research Tools [EMPART] is an ongoing study that serves as a follow-on project from our E-MARCH (Engaging Muslim Americans For Research on Community Health) Project.
- This study is being run in collaboration with Worry Free Community under the supervision of principal investigators Dr. Aasim Padela and Fatema Mirza (WorryFree Community).
Through funding from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), the research team will use the Mosque-based toolkit, and draw upon others relevant to the faith-based community contexts (e.g., Pastors4PCOR) to accelerate the uptake and adoption of PCOR/CER for community health outcome improvement in Chicagoland-area mosques.
