Beginning February 2021, ICUDDR and ISAJE will host a Learning Collaborative using the Publishing Addiction Science materials developed by ISAJE. It will be facilitated by journal editors Richard Pates, Journal of Substance Use, Ann Mitchell, Journal of Addictions Nursing, and Christine Vourakis, Journal of Addictions Nursing.
The collaborative features ten 90-minute sessions beginning Tuesday, February 2nd at 8:00 a.m. (EST) and every other week at the same day and time through June 8 via Zoom video conferencing. The sessions will utilize a train the trainer model so that faculty will be able to use the content in their respective settings with their students. Participants are expected to write and share a paper for review and critique, and to read and critique at least one other paper per session. The consultant facilitator will provide brief didactic presentations on topics identified through reading the draft papers or on common issues that arise in papers by early-stage investigators or by investigators in low-income countries. They will also read and comment on the paper submitted each week for review and discussion. Participants will be asked to provide feedback on the learning materials and to discuss adaptations for use with their own students and mentees.
Each group is limited to 12 participants. To apply, please send an e-mail application to Jessica Keene that includes an abstract or draft paper. We look forward to receiving your applications! Click HERE for more information about the learning collaborative model.
