Rallying the Troops: Engaging Your Community for Inclusion

Knowledge-to-action frameworks are useful tools to systematically implement evidence into community practice. One such framework is NCHPAD’s Inclusive Community Implementation Process (NiCIP) adapted from the CAN-IMPLEMENT. Community engagement and stakeholder input from the outset is a central principle of this framework. Within the NiCIP, stakeholders with disabilities must work alongside community implementers to implement sustainable knowledge use within the community. This charrette style training will incorporate multiple learning styles.
Participants will:
Discover what an inclusive health coalition is and how to bring more community partners to the table.
Discuss the principles of community engagement while reviewing parts of the NiCIP Framework.
Be provided real life examples of adaptations of evidence based programs across the 5 domains of inclusion.
