The BioBehavioral Laboratory is a resource within the St. David’s CHPR for nursing investigators who plan to include biobehavioral data in their studies.

Community Agency Survey
St. David’s CHPR included a Community Agency Survey in the 2012 and 2013 Annual Conferences’ portfolio materials given to the attendees. The purpose of the survey was to ascertain which individuals and agencies were interested in forming relationships with The University of Texas at Austin’s health promotion research community involved in research serving underserved groups. This information is available to researchers in the UT Austin community.
Visit the Community Agency Survey page for more information.
The Cultural Competence Checklist, available here, is a tool for use by investigators who want to know if their studies’ designs are culturally competent. The tool is adapted from Porter and Villarruel’s “Nursing Research with African American and Hispanic People: Guidelines for Action” from a 1993 Nursing Outlook issue.
St. David’s CHPR has access to University of Minnesota Nutritional Data System for Research (NDSR), for use by faculty investigators researching topics with underserved populations.
NDSR is a Windows-based dietary analysis program designed for the collection and analyses of 24-hour dietary recalls, food records, menus, and recipes.
Please contact St. David’s CHPR if you wish to reserve time to use the NDSR.
Health Promotion Scales
The Barriers to Health Pomoting Activities for Disabled Persons Scale (BHADP) and Self Rated Abilities for Health Practices Scale (SRAHP) have been used by several faculty members in health promotion studies and articles. They have primarily been used in surveys, but may also be used in structured interviews. Information regarding the use of these scales by the public is provided.
Health Promotion & Disease Prevention Website Sources
The Health Promotion & Disease Prevention Website Sources include resources regarding health promotion information, information about selected diseases and the impact that these have when dealing with underserved populations. St. David’s CHPR provides this information to the public with no endorsements of any particular source.
Library – Books & Journals
St. David’s CHPR maintains a resource library (NUR 4.166A, 1710 Red River, Austin, Texas) containing information on developing research, writing grants, doing statistical analysis, and also containing current public health information and information on current topics relevant to research with underserved populations. This library is open to UT staff, faculty and St. David’s CHPR affiliates, as an aid to doing work with underserved populations. The library also keeps video recordings of past St. David’s CHPR colloquia.
