The document, "Responsible Research with Communities: Participatory Research in Primary Care," together with the recommendations for NAPCRG, was adopted as organizational policy, by the NAPCRG Board of Directors and membership at the NAPCRG Annual Meeting on November 6, 1998 in Montreal. This document grew out of a successful workshop on Respectful Research With Communities at the 1996 NAPCRG Annual Meeting. The NAPCRG membership and Board of Directors supported and financed development of this document. The Task Force solicited comments from interested parties and incorporated many suggestions into the revisions. This policy was updated in 2015.
