Papadopoulos (2006a) uses the term 'culturally competent research' to describe her version of Participatory Research that is specifically applied to investigate cross- cultural/transcultural health related questions. Further, Papadopoulos (2006b) defined culturally competent research as research that both utilizes and develops knowledge and skills which promote the delivery of health care that is sensitive and appropriate to individuals' needs, whatever their cultural backgrounds.
