Manual description

The SC CTSI has taken a community-driven approach to develop an intervention that can be delivered by Promotores (Community Health Workers) in community settings to address the lack of participation in research among the Latino community.  This research promotor curriculum is designed to train Promotores to increase community knowledge about research, advocate for research and help community members understand and appreciate research. The lessons build upon one another sequentially to ensure that each Promotor will achieve the learning objectives. The manual was developed as part of the Southern California Community Engagement Consortium (comprised of CTSA hubs at University of California Los Angeles, University of California San Diego, Scripps Health, and the University of Southern California) and Providence Health and Services.

The training manual is comprised of five lessons:

  1. Introduction  
  2. What is Research? 
  3. Types of Research
  4. Research Process
  5. Research Participant Protection
  6. To access this resource, please contact the SC CTSI Community Engagement team.
