Answering the call of The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s “A Prioritized Research Agenda for Suicide Prevention” to promote research collaborations in order to reduce the burden of suicide, this Community of Practice is intended for teams of suicide researchers and injury, suicide or violence prevention practitioners from state, tribal or community agencies and organizations. This CoP aims to:
- Create a shared body of knowledge and skills for designing a public health-related, collaborative research project, focused on suicide prevention;
- Help participants generate project ideas, form teams, and gain momentum on collaborative research projects;
- Assist in the development of competitive applications to the 2018 ICRC-S Research Training Institute (RTI) (dates and application form forthcoming)
The CoP consists of webinars grounded in real world case studies of successful collaborative research projects that explore specific steps in the research design process, and field audience questions about overcoming challenges. These webinars will take place from September 2017 through February 2018.
