Official Session Summary: “Pivoting Research in Health Care Management in the Context of COVID-19” (Session 1, 9:00 – 11:30 EDT) will offer discussion on innovative approaches to research collaboration that have emerged as a result of disruptions caused by the pandemic. In this workshop, we will describe our approach to collaborating across multiple disciplines; discuss the processes and practices that support this collaboration; describe lessons we have learned from one another and from this collaborative process about research, methodologies, translation of theory to practice, and even about organizing logistics and interests across time zones and cultures. Workshop participants will be invited to share norms and practices from their own collaborations and discuss barriers to multidisciplinary collaborations as well as strategies to address these challenges. We hope the session will illuminate new opportunities to support transdisciplinary health management research.
