Upcoming Event Sponsored by the Improvement Science Research Network

A Web Event on Improvement Science
Team Science: Creating Successful Collaborative Teams

Wednesday, May 25, 2011
2:00 pm EDT

The Improvement Science Research Network (ISRN) is a network dedicated to rigorously testing health care improvement strategies through multi-site research studies and academic - practice partnerships.

Though such large-scale research can produce ground breaking results, it also presents challenges in forming highly functioning and effective teams across multiple disciplines and geographical barriers. The field of Team Science provides a wealth of information about creating and maintaining successful teams that the ISRN will apply to collaborative research studies.

Join our presenter for a free 60-minute Web event as he presents the concept and principles of Team Science, key factors for successful collaboration, and how these ideas apply to the work of the ISRN, especially the ISRN landmark Network Studies.
