The CBSSM Working Group is a forum for investigators interested in CBSSM-related topics (e.g., patient communications, decision making, ethical dilemmas, etc.) to participate in the CBSSM community by sharing their ideas and receiving constructive feedback. These meetings provide an opportunity to receive feedback on research proposals, survey instruments, interview guides, drafts of papers, grant applications, or any other aspects of projects at any stage of development. Our goal is to provide an informal setting that can help to move a project forward, and repeat visits are allowed as appropriate.
While participation in Working Group is not formally limited to CBSSM affiliates, we ask and expect that presenters return the favor for others by participating in other Working Group sessions beyond their own, ideally becoming part of the CBSSM community. The Working Group is not an external service but a part of the CBSSM community's commitment to support each other's research and learning. We welcome those interested in CBSSM to use the Working Group as an opportunity to meet potential collaborators, to learn new methods and perspectives, and to share their own insights to the betterment of others.
