Participatory Action Research and Evaluation
Corresponding author: A G Mubuuku gmubuuke gmail. Health professions training is undergoing major innovative changes aimed at improving the quality of health professionals. Unfortunately many of these innovative changes in training have met resistance from lecturers and students simply because they are just imposed on them. One way of ensuring acceptability and success of innovative and evidence-based training methods in health sciences could be the use of participatory action research approaches. To explore the experiences of students and lecturers as well as identify potential benefits regarding the use of a participatory action research approach in a real learning context. This was an action research study using a participatory approach. Research findings.
Participatory approaches to research and evaluation intentionally include the people and groups who are most affected by an inquiry in the design and execution of the process. Participatory forms of research and evaluation help to ensure that the methods and findings reflect the perspectives, cultures, priorities, or concerns of those who are being studied. Because students, parents, community members, or other stakeholders are given active roles in a participatory research or evaluation process—and therefore roles in producing new knowledge or insights about their school, organization, or community—participatory research is a foundational and widely used strategy in organizing, engagement, and equity work. While participatory approaches to research and evaluation can take a wide variety of forms, and many different methodologies both quantitative and qualitative may be used to achieve different objectives, participatory approaches to research and evaluation can be organized into three broad categories:. Participatory approaches to research, action research, and evaluation are based on similar philosophies, theories, and methods. For example, they start with many of the same underlying assumptions, such as:.

This snapshot of participatory action research is one of a series of CFCA resources on evaluation. For further information about other evaluation approaches and evaluation in general, see CFCA's research and evaluation resources. The approach seeks to situate power within the research process with those who are most affected by a program. The intention is that the participant is an equal partner with the researcher Boyle, ; Patton, The participatory nature of PAR refers to the active involvement of program clients, practitioners, and community members - plus any others who have a stake in the program, including funders, researchers and program managers. A key element of this involvement is a process of collective, self-reflective inquiry, which stakeholders undertake in an effort to understand and improve upon practices in which they participate and situations in which they are engaged. For program providers and evaluators, the PAR approach focuses on delivering high quality and responsive services.

UNDERSTANDING PARTICIPATORY ACTION RESEARCH: A QUALITATIVE RESEARCH METHODOLOGY OPTION
Julie L. The goal of improving consumer welfare can subtly or dramatically shape the research process, the methods used, and the theories developed. This article introduces the participatory action research paradigm, which is based upon the goal of helping people and employs methodologies that are different from traditional consumer research. Exemplars of action research are analyzed to reveal applications for researchers who want to engage in transformative consumer research.
