Pneumococcal Disease Prevention
Community-Academic Partnership to Improve Pneumococcal Immunization Rates in an Underserved Population
University of Cincinnati
Approved: August 2012
Grant Period: October 2012 – March 2014
With this project, we will create a multi-level strategy to improve adult pneumococcal immunization rates in a high-risk, urban community within Cincinnati, Ohio. Our approach will integrate proven strategies with specific input from our local consumers and community. The combination of CBPR and QI methods in this project will clarify modifiable barriers to adult pneumococcal immunization and engage community members as partners in the creation and pilot of a multi-level strategy tailored to our local community.
