The CaSE program facilitates engagement between academic, clinical, and community partners across the state to ensure that stakeholder input informs research; that research addresses the priorities and needs of the communities it serves; and that underrepresented populations are equitably involved in the research process.
The Community and Stakeholder Engagement Program (CaSE) facilitates engagement between academic, clinical, and community partners across the state to ensure that stakeholder input informs research; that research addresses the priorities and needs of the communities it serves; and that underrepresented populations are equitably involved in the research process.
Our engagement services support all phases of health research projects, from conceptualization to dissemination, and include the following:
Our faculty and staff are available to meet with researchers and stakeholders to consult on a variety of engagement topics. Examples include: best practices for community-engaged research, including measurements and tools; guidance for identifying and engaging with diverse communities; review of grant proposals and budgets for community-engaged research; and connecting researchers and stakeholders who share common interests. Request a consultation with a member of the CaSE team.
In collaboration with the NC TraCS Inclusive Science Program, CaSE offers a variety of engaged research services to study teams. These services, listed below, are explained in detail on our Engaged Research Services list (pdf).
Billable services are charged at a rate of $65/hour during business hours (M-F 8am-5pm) and $88/hour after business hours. Before billable work can begin, NC TraCS requires a Memorandum of Understanding outlining the agreed upon scope of work, timeline, and billing/invoicing.
Are you a community member looking to inform research at UNC? Are you a researcher looking for a community or patient partner to provide input on your project? Learn more about what we're doing and how to get connected.
