Measurement Approaches to Partnership Success (MAPS)

December 19, 2023

As an extension of its community-based participatory research (CBPR) capacity-building efforts, the Detroit Community-Academic Urban Research Center (Detroit URC) completed a six-year, $2.8 million study called Measurement Approaches to Partnership Success (MAPS): An Innovative Tool for Assessing Long-Standing CBPR Partnerships.

Funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) as part of its “Advancing Science, Improving Lives” Strategic Plan, the MAPS project developed a clear definition of success in long-standing CBPR partnerships, a specific set of factors that contribute to it, and a practical tool for measuring those factors.
