Abstract
Taking Culture Seriously in Community Mental Health is a community-based participatory action research project in Ontario devoted to developing, pilot testing, and evaluating mental health service models grounded in the concept of "cultural empowerment." To ensure that the knowledge generated in the project is shared and used, the research collaborative places a heavy emphasis on communicating with stakeholder groups. This paper provides an overview of a communications policy designed to facilitate such sharing and use. It describes the development and key features of the policy, focusing on the broad issues of principles, authorship and acknowledgment, and planning and procedures.

Abstract
The perceptions of community service providers about access to public technology and uses of technology to support population health were investigated. Perceptions about policies regarding access to technology for the public were also pursued. Qualitative semistructured interviews with service providers in the community were used. One-hour semistructured interviews were conducted with representatives from five community organizations and one business in an urban centre with a population of 400,000. Respondents believed that computers are here to stay, that that they can provide a valuable means for information access and that they have the potential to support communication in local communities. Perceived barriers were also identified.

Smoking Cessation - methods
Abstract
Native Hawaiians have high smoking prevalence and high lung cancer mortality rates.
We sought to describe a comprehensive tobacco cessation protocol and share lessons learned in institutionalizing it across the five Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems (NHHCS).
NHHCS representatives worked together to culturally tailor the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) protocol for smoking cessation. Process objectives included number of staff trained in tobacco cessation, inclusion of the Tobacco User Guide Sheet (TUGS) in the intake process and medical record, and expansion of programs for smokers who want to quit. Outcome objectives included percent of individuals asked about smoking status and percent of identified smokers that received brief intervention, set a quit date, were linked to services, and remained smoke free for 90 days.
After 18 months, the NHHCS were at different stages of protocol adoption. More successful NHHCS were more likely to have several champions for the program and administrative support for staff training, new programs, and integrating the TUGS into client charts. They also showed greater success in getting smokers to set a quit date and remain smoke free for 90 days.
Although the five NHHCS helped to design the protocol, each operates independently. More effort and time are needed to help each system overcome internal barriers to institutionalizing a new protocol and to facilitate support for tobacco cessation champions among medical records and data management supervisors. These lessons may be useful to other organizations that want to institutionalize a comprehensive tobacco cessation protocol.

Abstract
This guide was written as a follow-up, and complement, to the 1998 joint Nunavut Research Institute/Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami booklet entitled Negotiating Research Relationships: A Guide for Communities. That guide was written to help Inuit community members understand their rights and responsibilities in negotiating research relationships. This guide is written to help researchers: understand some community concerns and expectations in relation to researchprojects; understand the benefits, opportunities and challenges associated with engaging Inuit communities in research; determine appropriate levels of community involvement in various researchstages; initiate community contact and begin the process of negotiating a research relationship; clarify the research licensing processes and timelines and establish early contact with organizations responsible for research coordination, permitting, and licensing in each of the Canadian Inuit regions, and; choose appropriate and effective means to communicate research results to communities.Ultimately, this guide aims to improve the process of negotiating research relationships with Inuit communities in Canada.
