Table 3 Recommendations

From: A chair at the table: a scoping review of the participation of refugees in community-based participatory research in healthcare

Improve participation accessibility in all stages of the research process: refugee involvement must be made more accessible at the researcher level, and at the funder/government agency level.
Expand health intervention areas that have CBPR refugee involvement: it is important that there is an expansion amongst the health topics supported by refugee partners.
Recognize and leverage refugee expertise within their communities: Refugee communities have unique lived experience and have important insights into the contextual realities of their resettled communities. Efforts need to be made to empower and enable the community to take on leadership roles and vocalize their own lived experiences.
