The Milwaukee Partnership Research Study: Moving from Vision to Reality
October 15, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Center for Urban Population Health (CUPH) 20 Year Anniversary Virtual Seminar Series
Elizabeth Duthie, Rachel Lander, and Kaija Zusevics will present findings from their study that began with the research question: what are challenges and catalysts to moving an aim forward? They will highlight two academic fields of study that provided the foundation for this research: implementation science and meeting science. Extensive analysis of the data revealed that the key to moving the aim forward was utilizing a systematic process during meetings to keep the meetings concrete and actionable. The systematic process included: defining the aim, determining baseline data, creating a scope of work that was manageable, measuring progress toward the aim, engaging implementors’ buy-in, and establishing concrete and actionable steps to move the aim forward. Further, they found that a set of meeting tools provided a structure for keeping meetings concrete and actionable. In this presentation, they will share the findings of their research study: they have created a replicable process – one that is observable, measurable, and teachable – that can help organizations and coalitions implement their initiatives and reach their goals.
