2020 PCORI Virtual Annual Meeting Breakout Session

As more research teams include stakeholders as partners, the evidence base and practical guidance about working successfully as a multi-stakeholder team continues to grow. This session will introduce Building Effective Multi-Stakeholder Research Teams, a new learning package created by PCORI and available in late 2020, that provides resources for researchers and stakeholders on working effectively and collaboratively as a team. To introduce the package, this session will feature members of multi-stakeholder research teams discussing key challenges in working together: How can a team create and sustain a shared vision for the study? How can teams establish norms for solving problems and managing disagreement? Interactive technology will allow attendees to ask questions, raise additional topics, and share insights on working collaboratively as a team. In addition, this session will introduce opportunities for researchers and stakeholders to share their experiences with working as a team to inform future resources.
