In Boundaries of Care, Ryan I. Logan details the lived experience of community health workers (CHWs) – a present yet often invisible facet of the healthcare workforce. These workers participate in nonclinical services to enhance the health and well-being of their communities outside the walls of the clinic and social service agencies. Logan examines the boundaries of and barriers to care present in the experiences of CHWs, their relationships with clients, issues of professionalization, impacts of burnout and self-care, and the critical impacts of CHW advocacy. Told through first-hand accounts and interwoven with theory, Logan presents the key challenges facing this workforce and their potential to foster even greater well-being within their communities. The findings and recommendations from participants found within Boundaries of Care can inform and shape CHW programs both in the United States and abroad.

The purpose of this training is to promote an understanding of basic research concepts for new research staff. The curriculum is intended for research support staff/volunteers who have a role in the conduct of research, but who have received little to no formal training in this area. The primary goal is for learners to develop an understanding of basic research concepts and appreciate the importance of conducting research in keeping with an approved plan. We hope this enhanced knowledge and understanding of research concepts and responsible practices will contribute to the integrity of the research and the value of the research results.
The training offers an introduction to the basic research concepts of research and is completed according to the individuals personal abilities (e.g., self-paced curriculum). The material serves as a foundation for responsible and proper conduct of research. The topics presented include how to design and conduct research as well as how actions conducted throughout research can affect the integrity of the research project. This training presents ethical issues associated with conducting research and encourages beginning research team members to make decisions consistent with responsible and ethical research practices. The topics were selected by experts in research methods in a variety of fields (e.g., social science). The topics discussed in this manual are typically offered as university research methods academic courses; however, the information was written without technical words so that the issues discussed are accessible to individuals who have little to no experience in these topics.
Our manual is also available in Spanish.

Rosa D. Manzo, Ph.D., associate director of medical education and a project research scientist, has co-authored a new book on community-based and community-engaged research.
Cultura y Corazón is a research approach and practice that is rooted in the work of Latinx and Chicanx scholars and intellectuals. The book documents best practices for Community Based and Participatory Action Research (CBPAR), which is both culturally attuned and scientifically demonstrated. This methodology takes a decolonial approach to engaging community members in the research process and integrates critical feminist and indigenous epistemologies.
Cultura y Corazón presents case studies from the authors’ work within the fields of education and health. It offers key strategies to working in partnership with marginalized Latinx communities that are grounded in deep respect for the communities’ cultures and lived experiences. This book is intended for students, researchers, and practitioners who want to work with vulnerable populations through a community-based approach that truly respects and integrates culture, values, and funds of knowledge.
