The CTSI Professional Development Workshop Series kicks off on Wednesday, March 14, with a presentation titled, "Team Science.”
The workshop will be presented by Katia Noyes, PhD, MPH, professor and director of the Division of Health and Services Policy and Practice in the Department of Epidemiology and Environmental Health, School of Public Health and Health Professions, and director of the CTSI’s Team Science core.
In recent decades, the approach to address many clinically important research questions has shifted to become multidisciplinary in nature. While many effective demonstrations of this approach exist, several barriers remain. Numerous teams have reported obstacles such as: uncertain institutional support, lack of understanding across disciplines and imprecise incentives for utilizing true multidisciplinary strategies, as well as others.
In this presentation, Noyes will explore key concepts and approaches to team science based on available evidence and her personal experience in managing and working within multidisciplinary teams for the past 20 years. She will give an overview of the ongoing Translational Teamwork Workshop Series, as well as lead the discussion exploring the common problems encountered with teamwork in science, guiding participants in identifying strategies aimed at improving the approach to multidisciplinary health care research and improving patient outcomes.
The Professional Development Workshop Series is a joint venture by the CTSI’s Workforce Development core, KL2 Mentored Career Development Award Program and Community of Scholars project.
Registration for the first workshop is due March 12.
