   ISSN (Print) 2157-1732 - ISSN (Online) 2157-1740
   Published by Project MUSE Homepage  [294 journals]
  • Editors’ Note
    • Abstract: We are pleased to publish the first issue of volume seven of Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics (NIB). The new cover art on issue 7.1 symbolizes change at NIB. This is the first issue supported by Heidi Walsh as Managing Editor and by Cynthia McKenna as Communications Director (and the graphic artist behind the new cover art). Editors Ana Iltis and James DuBois wish to thank Susan DuBois for more than six years of service in these roles. She led the day-to-day efforts to develop and support a new journal during a challenging time in the publication industry. She played an essential role in the publication of NIB’s first 18 issues, in the development of NIB VOICES, and the creation of the Foundation for Narrative ... Read More

  • Introduction: Community–Academic Partnerships in Research and Public
           Health
    • Abstract: Academics have been partnering with communities for decades (Israel, Schulz, Parker, & Becker, 1998). Community engagement is touted not only as the “more ethical” thing to do, but often the “more practical” thing to do in health–related research and service delivery (Wallerstein & Duran, 2008). This practicality recognizes the breadth of the knowledge base that informs research and values collaboration among academic professions in association with community partners. The idea that conducting research or delivering programs with community partners—as opposed to on them or to them—would increase participation and relevance certainly makes logical sense. Yet, community engagement is still not widely practiced ... Read More

  • Two Steps Forward, One Step Back: Dancing Toward Equitable Collaboration
    • Abstract: Alma’s flustered voice burst out, “¡Pues, ya díganos! ¿Qué quieren que hagamos'” The out-cry startled and confused us, breaking our attention and pulling us away from our facilitation notes—pages replete with our detailed plans for the meeting. It was a Friday evening after each of us had completed a full workday and fought the Los Angeles traffic. We were exhausted, to say the least. Furthermore, our meeting was taking place under time constraints because the East Los Angeles community center where we met was closing in an hour. The members of our group—six promotoras—were antsy to move our collaborative project along. So were we. We were doggedly making our way through our plans to elicit ... Read More

  • Research Partnership Rather than Research on the Amish
    • Abstract: Gelassenheit. The first time I heard this word it sounded like a sneeze and I remember asking for the research participant, who I was interviewing, to translate. She paused, appeared thoughtful and said “for you it would be, it would be you being humble. That what you do is for God and you are grateful you can.” When I decided that I wanted to pursue doctoral education in nursing research almost ten years ago, I had no inkling how much this word, and my relationship with an Amish community would enrich my life. I knew that I wanted to do research with a population who was vulnerable. I knew that I wanted to learn how to listen to people’s stories and translate their perspective to the scientific community. I did ... Read More

  • We Really Do Have the Same Goals: The Push and Pull of One
           Community–Academic Partnership to Support Congolese Refugee Women
    • Abstract: We never expected a mundane conversation about university curriculum to blossom into a community based participatory research endeavor. However, looking back, it seems natural that an international relations faculty member who had worked with a refugee organization for years and a public health faculty member who used Photovoice research with vulnerable populations found common ground. The main purpose of our project was to assess the needs of Congolese refugees coming into Indianapolis in order to improve the ability of refugee resettlement agencies and public policy makers to provide effective and, culturally appropriate services. Photovoice methodology was intentionally selected to give the women voice ... Read More

  • Dual Relationships in Specialty Care: Reflections from the Field
    • Abstract: The creation of the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Transgender Health Program (THP) was a grassroots effort involving transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) community members, local organizations serving the TGNC community, clinicians, administrators, and researchers. The THP, which launched in January 2015, offers comprehensive, affirming, and competent healthcare to TGNC individuals across their lifespan.

  • A Storied Community: Piloting a Patient/Student Narrative Workshop at a
           Community Health Center
    • Abstract: The students enter the room unsure. They come from various health professions across the University: Pharmacy residents, Doctorate of Nursing Practice students, and medical students. For perhaps the first time they will be sitting with patients in a room that is not an exam room. They will be writing stories, not medical notes. Together, students and patients will be talking and writing about illness as people who have experienced it in their lives, not with their role in institutionalized medicine on their sleeves. The students have been instructed that, if asked, they may be called on to help the patients with the physical act of writing, serving as scribes. The patients are encouraged to ask for such help ...

  • Reflections on Cultivating Community–based Participatory Research
           Partnerships with the Afghan Immigrant Community
    • Abstract: Using a community–based participatory research (CBPR) approach, we describe the process of a first–time campus–community partnership between UC Berkeley School of Public Health and the Afghan Coalition in California. Objectives: We reflect on lessons learned in cultivating a unique community health partnership to provide a preliminary understanding of how Afghan immigrant women view their breast health, and to determine and assess their barriers to breast cancer screening. This story will emphasize the importance and challenges of (1) negotiating equitable collaborative relationships, (2) recruitment and retention of participants by community members and ways to overcome cultural and language barriers ...

  • Be Careful What You Wish for: A Community–Academic Student
           Partnership Story
    • Abstract: Milwaukee, Wisconsin is a unique Midwestern city. Situated on the western shore of Lake Michigan and the southeast corner of the state, it is Wisconsin’s largest city. Milwaukee has a reputation for a diverse culture, cuisine, music, higher education, and an incredible park system. These attributes make it a desirable city for over a half a million people in the Midwest. However, while steeped in rich history and culture, the city has some significant issues. While many urban cities in the United States suffer with racial tension and disparities, Milwaukee is considered one of the most segregated US cities and unfortunately has the largest racial disparities in some major health outcomes. One of the most ... Read More

The group includes people who are homeless, previously–incarcerated, unemployed, handling chronic mental or physical challenges and several health science researchers. Someone walking by the room might notice the intense energy, lively debate, engaged participation, reams of flip chart paper, and wonder, “What’s going on''” This has been our reality every month for over six years. The people giving advice are the Community Advisors on Research Design and Strategies (CARDS)®, community members from diverse racial, socioeconomic, and educational backgrounds.

    • Abstract: The Positive Families Project is a partnership between parents living with HIV, service providers, and myself, an academic at a public university. Our projects investigate the need for and develop social services with HIV–affected families. Often services focus only on the person living with HIV. Our mission is to support people living with HIV who are also parents so that families with an HIV+ member can be healthy and productive. Stigma reduction is key to our approach as stigma can contribute to multiple risks for parents and their children. The partnership has encompassed several projects, starting with pilot studies in 2006–2010 on the stigma experiences of non–HIV+ teens living with HIV+ ... Read More

           Research with Rural Indigenous Communities as a Graduate Student
    • Abstract: My research is equal parts academic inquiry, self–discovery, community engagement, and adventure. As a Ph.D. Candidate in Communication Studies at the University of Michigan, I study access to health information in rural, remote communities and implications for health equity, as well as effective health message design. I am particularly interested in the role of what I call ‘emic media’ in this process. ‘Emic media’ and what we commonly refer to as community media are both locally based and community–driven. However, I see a difference in that emic media do not only present the information most interesting or relevant to a particular community, but make a conscious effort to communicate from the perspective ...

           Program By The Community for the Community
    • Abstract: African American and White caregivers in rural South Carolina who had been involved in the care of a loved one who had recently died, were asked what they found helpful or beneficial about the professional care (care provided by physicians, nurses, other hospital and hospice and nursing home staff staff) and what they considered ineffective or inadequate. Gaining an understanding of their perspective, through focus groups, was the first phase of this study. While this insight is important in and of itself, the more substantial purpose was to use this information to develop a culturally–based palliative care consult program for African American and White rural southern patients with a life–limiting diagnosis. ...

  • A Deep Dive into Community Engagement
    • Abstract: Community engagement is here to stay. As the narratives in this collection demonstrate, what was once a startling innovation is becoming an accepted, indeed expected, element of health research. This is a welcome development, in my view. I am convinced that researchers, clinicians, and ethicists can learn a great deal from patients, subjects, and community members. When it’s done well, engagement adds meaning and value to health research. The narratives included here are also evidence that people involved in engagement activities are becoming more sophisticated. These authors exhibit a nuanced understanding of the rewards and challenges, as well as a refreshing honesty in discussing what can be an ... Read More

  • The Common Denominator
    • Abstract: “Community–Based Research” moves away from the paternalistic investigator premise that, “We have identified an issue that concerns you and we are going to come to where you live to study this problem so we can help you.” There is an upfront expectation that members of the targeted community will be partners, collaborators and even co–designers of the research, contributing study questions and shepherding research activities through the twists and turns of their daily lives. When investigators enter a social space to do community–based research, they have identified an issue, constructed a hypothesis, devised a strategy, and expect to collect and evaluate data before formulating conclusions. It is a linear ... Read More

  • Toward an Ethics of Community–Academic Partnership
    • Abstract: See. This is why I keep thinking anthropology really is the master discipline. Each of the narratives in this collection is unique, yet each tells the same story: that we should all be ethnographers now. If we’re serious about making a difference in U.S. health care, that is, we all need to look with the eyes of ethnographers and speak with the voices of interpreters. These narratives try to do that; they try to say what life feels like “in the field,” “on the ground”: “We assumed we had the ‘research’ skills and they had the ‘community’ skills.” “ . . . thinking that you are humble and grateful is not the same as being humble and grateful.” “ . . . always fearful of breaking the trust of the ...

  • Reciprocal Relationships: Something for Everyone
    • Abstract: Problems with maintaining a healthy working relationship are fodder for advice columnists and many day–time television program hosts. They have plenty of advice on how to recognize when a relationship is not working and what to do about that. Even Dr. Phil has written a book on rescuing relationships (McGraw, 2000), and has reminded us that, of course, both parties need to want to repair the relationship. Establishing effective working relationships is not for the faint hearted. Despite the plethora of advice out there on how to repair damaged relationships, the building and maintenance of good relationships is difficult. Although numerous examples of common–sense advice on relationship–building ... Read More

    • Abstract: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), immunizations are among the safest and most successful public health interventions (CDC, 1999). These interventions have been so effective that many vaccine-preventable diseases are now unfamiliar to both providers and patients. Parental and provider vaccine hesitancy, defined as an active desire to defer or omit any of the vaccines routinely recommended by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), has become an increasingly common and nearly inevitable challenge, particularly in pediatric practice (Opel et al., 2011).

He wished to include them in an interventional clinical trial to find out whether they could adhere to and complete an experimental drug to treat Hepatitis C. There had been debates about whether this population would be able to follow an HCV drug regime, which involved taking 1 pill each day for 90 days. In addition, this interventional trial aimed to test whether participants would be able to avoid reinfection once they had completed the HCV treatment. Reinfection could occur if they were to enter into contact with ... Read More

Such was the case described here, which came before the Ethics Committee of which I am a member. (I have obtained permission from the hospital administration to use the case as long as the patient’s identity is concealed). This case was brought to the attention of the Ethics Committee for retrospective review by a charge nurse who was concerned about the high level of moral distress experienced by the nurses caring for this young patient. Most felt completely drained by the care they needed to provide, and ... Read More

He had been intubated and had recently undergone tracheostomy. He was mostly unresponsive, although he did withdraw from painful stimuli on examination. He was receiving artificial nutrition and hydration via a Dobhoff tube. Since Steven’s admission to the ICU, he had been treated for Klebsiella bacteremia and atrial fibrillation. Although he had a history of a deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, prophylaxis was not possible due to thrombocytopenia and severe coagulopathy. He also had a history of ... Read More

Although the pregnancy was unintended and the father of the baby, a boy of similar age, was no longer involved in her life, Chloe had come to accept the pregnancy and had the support of her parents, who were involved in her care and decision-making and were readily available at her bedside. During the admission process, the clinical team learned that Chloe and both of her parents were Jehovah’s Witnesses. In accordance with their beliefs, Chloe and her parents were adamant that no blood transfusions should be given under any circumstances. Although Chloe had been receiving ... Read More

    • Abstract: About fourteen years ago, I began a partnership as an evaluator with a community outreach project aimed at encouraging young girls in elementary school to seek a higher education because they were underrepresented in attaining college degrees. This experience turned out to be one of the most transformative in my life. Through this longitudinal study, I began to mentor a bright, energetic, young girl when she was ten years old. At the time I met her, I was in transition from being a researcher in public health to leading an Institutional Review Board (IRB) at a large research program. Mentoring her over the years and transitioning into the field of research ethics, significantly shaped how we both view ... Read More

           Learned Working with African American Males
    • Abstract: Recently, national organizations such as the American Public Health Association have initiated a National Campaign Against Racism to address racism as a underlying force of the social determinants of health and barriers to achieving health equity. The campaign calls for a clear shift in focus, a re–imagination of our traditional research methods, and identification of new and strengthening of existing community relationships and partnerships. More authentic and culturally embedded interventions must be developed that aim to change not just behaviors but systems. The field of public health has made some headway in addressing the root causes of health disparities; however, research on the prolific and constitutive ... Read More

CBPR begins with a research topic of importance to the community and has the aim of combining knowledge with action and achieving some kind of change in the community partner’s program and certainly improves knowledge for the academic partner. In addition, commonly acknowledged benefits of CBPR to the academic and researchers include an increased investment in and commitment to the research process by the study participants and facilitated participant recruitment and retention. Benefits for the ... Read More

At the time I had been working as a practice oriented researcher in the social work field for about four years. My previous projects were practice based and policy oriented and involved studying people with a migration background, acceptance of difference in society and fair integration of these people in elderly care and education. These projects also involved amplifying the voices of vulnerable people with a migration background, to open communication about inequalities in general society. In 2015, the Institute of Social Drug Research (Ghent University, Belgium) hired me to conduct and help coordinate a community–based ... Read More

  • Developing Trust, Multiple Identities, and Participatory Research: Select
           Examples
    • Abstract: In community–based participatory research (CBPR), trust among participating individuals and groups is paramount to achieving goals. Trust is an ever–changing and evolving concept implying increasing willingness to take risks with potentially delicate information, an assumption that promises will be kept, and a belief in the good will of the other. When outside researchers enter a community, they are greeted by community members and organizations who have often had prior experience with outside researchers. A critical aspect of this process is the value of outside researchers developing what clinical psychologist James Kelly called an ‘eco–identity” or a way of becoming known in the local community that helps ...

Our emergency room sees approximately 50 homeless patients during an average 30–day period. Given the transitory patterns of this population as well as the complex needs, their healthcare goals and instructions are typically overlooked and or unknown. By educating and engaging the homeless population in Advance Care Planning (ACP) we hope to aide in addressing the issues this complex population faces. ACP conversations include exploring goals of care with the hope of completing an Advance Healthcare Directive (AHCD) for ... Read More
