Communities of Practice (CoP) for Clinical and Translational Research

  • A community of practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a common concern, a set of problems, or an interest in a topic and who come together to fulfill both individual and group goals.
  • CoP often focus on sharing best practices and creating new knowledge to advance a domain of professional practice. Interaction on an ongoing basis is an important part of this.
  • CoP can rely on virtual meetings, face-to-face meetings and/or web-based collaborative environments to connect their membership.
