Abstract
Effective community development to maximize a given area’s potential requires strategies that enhance interprofessional collaboration (IPC) and community-based participatory research (CBPR). The role technology has to enable this has to date received little attention. Drawing from such diverse fields as Sociology and Public Health, this cross-disciplinary article provides an overview of what CBPR and IPC are and how it may be practically implemented via use of technology so as to improve knowledge mobilization and, in turn, effective decision making. CBPR, IPC, sociology and public health all share a common theme - community empowerment. To mobilize and maximize empowerment, knowledge transfer / knowledge mobilization is essential. Here, a practical model is presented to help reach these outcomes.
