Valuable resources were added to the Commons this month, and we want to give a special shout-out to NephCure Kidney Network who shared that they, “…used request forms already posted to the Commons to aid in the development of this [research request] form!*

We’re hopeful the Commons will continue to serve as a platform to learn from one another. View and download the following new tools.  

Remember: we can help turn your resources into templates, toolkits, or guidance documents! Share your materials using the contact form.

Groups & Forums

Groups are a great way to connect with others in the Network, discuss challenges, and share solutions.

Two of the newest groups, Direct to Patient Recruitment and Returning Study Results,

emerged from Research Innovations Workgroup discussions and are seeking existing tools, exploring development of new tools, and promoting collaboration in participant recruitment and sharing across PCORnet and beyond.

The Minority Engagement Group wants people to share and converse about ensuring all people can be meaningfully involved in research and healthcare decision making regardless of their background.

As always, we want you to chime in by adding your voice to ongoing conversations. Check out the forum in the Stakeholder Engagement Approaches group and join the discussion on the following topics:

Remember – you’ll need a Commons account to create docs and folders or post to groups, but anyone can view the discussion and materials.
