Barriers and Supports for Research Use

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: The in-person workshop was held in April in Washington, DC for staff and grantees of NIDRR and RSA that are focusing on employment research. The presenters addressed how research findings are used in planning and decision making, and what new research is needed.

There were three presentations, each followed by a discussant and a question and comment period, with a final summary and wrap-up. The sessions were recorded and archive audio files and transcripts are now available as on online workshop.

Pre-approved for 6 CRC-CEUs by the CRCC. More information about the CEUs. (disabled-link 1/2013)
