Participatory methodological approaches are nowadays enjoying increasing popularity and are more and more used in qualitative empirical social research studies. However, they are characterized by heterogeneous application methods and a certain lack of agreed quality criteria. In this paper, we present the heuristics, history, and development of the participatory method in health research developed by the international scientific network Collaboration for Participatory Health Research ICPHR. In addition to indicating the salient features, theoretical implications, and quality criteria, the authors of this contribution present the first Italian application of this method in the context of a project for health promotion and social innovation in rural areas in the province of South Tyrol.
