The Coalition to Expand Contraceptive Access led a collaborative process to create a Priority Roadmap for Policy-Ready Contraceptive Research that positions health services researchers to carry out impactful projects that advance sexual and reproductive health equity.
Health data and research ethicist, Dr. Camille Nebeker, reviews existing and emerging ethical considerations for health research using new data and methods, and uses an original framework to analyze several case examples – that demonstrate the relationships between domains of research and key ethical principles.
Health services researchers and others with expertise in open science issues suggest several next steps for the field including developing a common open science terminology, creating an open science interest group, designing open science trainings, and leveraging federal law to increase access to data.
This brief summarizes key points from a May 2021 meeting convened by AcademyHealth as part of the Paradigm Project to explore redesigning academic incentives to prioritize the social impact of health services research. The meeting underscored the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion -- among other factors -- in incentivizing research that has impact.
AcademyHealth Vice President Michael Gluck shares lessons learned over the last two years of the Paradigm Project and reflects on ways these innovations are only the start of our efforts to create real and lasting change in how we do, communicate, and use HSR.
Thinking about how disciplines evolve can help HSR leaders make sense of the forces of change churning in and around the field. The goal should be to make innovation a mainstay in HSR to produce relevant and timely research that improves both health and health care.
The February 2020 issue of the Blueprint features two Learning Community members and their Design Teams’ work to enhance community member involvement in researchers’ decision-making and increase access to and transparency of research findings.
