The purpose of this paper was to identify the definitions,processes and outcomes of Community-Based Participatory Research(CBPR). For this purpose,we conducted an integrative review of the public health literature. We found 44 articles that had the term CBPR in their titles,with all of these articles being published after 2000.

 The results were as follows :

 1. CBPR is a collaborative partnership-approach that develops by a cyclical and reciprocal process. During this process,researchers and community members work together as equal partners.

 2. The purposes of the CBPR are to : ・work on the partner-community's social determinants of health,・improve and promote health status of the community,・build capacity in the community,・develop collaborative partnership in the community,and ・evaluate services in terms of its cultural competency,thereby leading to the development of culturally competent services.

 3. The CBPR process includes : ・meeting a community that has a particular need for a CBPR project,・formulating partnership for the CBPR project,・identifying health issues in the community,・planning and implementing the program,and ・evaluating the program and continuing dialogue with the CBPR members,who are both community members and researchers.

 4. The common and basic skills observed at all steps of the process have the purpose of building respect and trust among the CBPR members.

 5. The outcomes include : ・finding solutions for health needs,・facilitating capacity building among CBPR members,・developing collaborative partnerships in the community,and ・creating health related resources in the community.

 The principles and skills that were derived from the CBPR literature are also relevant to the activities of public health nurses' activities in Japan. We therefore considered that the theories and approaches of CBPR are applicable to the activities of Japanese public health nurses.
