Anthropology Lecture Series: Applying the anthropological toolkit in health system-situated, community based research

Speaker: Jenney Lee, University of Washington

In the last decade there has been increasing interest in patient and other stakeholder engagement in clinical research. Often framed as patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR), these projects can serve as sites of both resistance to and reinforcement of the power structures inherent to traditional clinical research. This talk will explore two current community-based, patient-engaged research projects situated in a large health system. It will explore what it means to do community-based research within the constraints of a traditional clinical research infrastructure, and illustrate the tensions encountered in pushing clinical research toward community ownership.

Free. Open to all via Zoom. To request accommodations relating to a disability, please contact Nick Blum at 541-737-4515, preferably at least one week in advance.
