Summary: This PDW invites participants to engage in discussion of seven of the "hot topics" in health care management research and practice: 1) the changing nature of work, 2) safety organizing, 3) customer/client experience and satisfaction, 4) collaboration and integration, 5) cross-cultural research, 6) big data analysis, and 7) gaining insights from small data. Participants will gather at "research roundtables" where they will meet other researchers who share similar interests and discuss with them the state of research on their shared topic, challenges in conducting research on this topic, and future research, for examples. Discussion at each roundtable will be facilitated by two accomplished scholars, with active research on the hot topic. Participants will self-select into the topic area of their choice and have the option to move to a second topic/table at the midpoint of the session. This PDW offers participants the opportunity to engage in rich research discussions with exemplary facilitators reflecting diverse disciplines and perspectives, share new ideas, and make meaningful connections with potential collaborators.
