Project Summary

Although miners are at great risk for developing respiratory and other chronic health conditions, community-engaged research in mining communities has been limited. It is generally recommended that miners be screened periodically for health conditions, but best practices have not been established. This gap in the knowledge base can be addressed only by patient-centered outcomes research in mining communities. The long-term goal of this project is to perform comparative effectiveness research (CER) on meaningful health outcomes in mining communities. The objective of this project is to create viable CER questions for a full CER proposal. Our rationale for the proposed project is to further strengthen community engagement and fundamental research infrastructure for future community-engaged research.
