The purpose of the Research in Clinical Settings RIG is to promote excellence in research in the diverse clinical settings of our members. This RIG strives to create a network of community researchers to facilitate the sharing of best practices and lessons learned in the conduct of research. These challenging times and research in clinical settings is more important than ever before in generating new knowledge to improve quality outcomes, reduce healthcare delivery costs and disparities, and improve population health. Please join us on this journey.
We offer networking opportunities, peer support, and inspiration to others interested in this area of research in the clinical setting. We encourage all members to participate. We welcome all interested parties to join our RIG — researchers, clinicians, academicians, and students to our RIG.
