Collaborative Conversations: The Critical Need for Professional Workforce Development at Academic Medical Centers

CriticalNeedWorkforceAMC

The purpose of this meeting is to use an Un-Meeting format to enhance focused discussions on topics related to workforce development for clinical research professionals (CRPs) working in academic medical centers (AMCs), especially those that are working on federally-funded clinical research.

Originally planned as a face-to-face half-day event, we are now converting these collaborative conversations into a series of virtual sessions, continuing to use un-meeting principles.


Key Goal:

The goal is to share perspectives on the challenges and successes in conducting federally funded clinical research with a focus on developing actionable ways to drive improvement. The focus will be on workforce development initiatives and the generation of new ideas and collaborative teams.

Objectives:

Through active collaborative conversations in the “Virtual Un-Meeting”, participants will:

  1. Summarize the historical evolutions of clinical research professional workforce development and professionalization.
  2. Learn and apply the “Un-Meeting” process as a method of team science collaboration and communication.
  3. Contribute to key discussions, solution finding and collaborations for key topics related to clinical research professional workforce development, especially focusing on the academic medical center workforce.
  4. Impact future initiatives and research by becoming a member of new interactive teams, participating in key meeting outputs or generating local outputs.

The Un-Meeting Concept:

The Un-Meeting is different from a traditional passive conference. Rather, this is a highly interactive meeting whereby attendees create and drive the topic discussions surrounding a common theme. This enables attendees to discuss their experiences, identify areas of potential research, innovation, & collaboration. This will cultivate connections across the clinical research professionals and CTSA hubs.  It further enhances team science through the collaborative nature of the format.

For additional information on the Un-Meeting process, the Center for Leading Innovation & Collaboration (CLIC) has prepared an Un-Meeting planning guide. The aim of this Un-Meeting will be to enhance clinical research professional workforce development through the creation of sustainable, collaborative relationships and initiatives. Outputs from this Un-Meeting may range from:  White Papers, Collaborations, Initiatives, and connections.  This video illustrates the Un-Meeting process.

Who should attend:

  • Clinical research professionals with a keen interest in workforce development
  • Anyone involved in hiring, managing, training and supporting the competency and career development of clinical research professionals
  • Due to space limitations and to ensure a diversity of representatives across CTSAs and AMCs, we encourage only 1-2 representatives per CTSA.

Dates & Topics:

Meetings will be once a month from September 2020 – February 2021. All meetings will take place from 10am to 12pm Pacific (1pm  to 3pm Eastern).
