Defining and measuring community engagement and community-engaged research: clinical and translational science institutional practices.
The institutions that comprise the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) consortium and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences continue to explore and develop community-engaged research strategies and to study the role of community academic partnerships in advancing the science of community engagement. The purpose of this study was to explore CTSA institutions in relation to an Institute of Medicine recommendation that community engagement occur in all stages of translational research and be defined and evaluated consistently.

Catalyzing implementation of evidence-based interventions in safety net settings: a clinical-community partnership in South Los Angeles.
This study was a process evaluation of a clinical-community partnership that implemented evidence-based interventions in clinical safety net settings. Key participants and health care providers, involved in the study, expressed a high level of satisfaction with the collaborative and the interventions, respectively. The authors provide key lessons learned for researchers and practitioners interested in partnering with Federally Qualified Health Centers to implement health promotion interventions.

Praxis-based research networks: an emerging paradigm for research that is rigorous, relevant, and inclusive.
The authors argue that praxis-based research networks (PBRNs) are dynamically evolving to meet the needs of communities by partnering to generate new knowledge that can benefit community and population health. Furthermore, the praxis-based research network model facilitates adaptive partnering and provides a learning mechanism that enables the formation of new collaborations while remaining true to the core values of PBRNs.
