Stakeholder Perspectives on VA Access Research Priorities: Development of an Access Research Roadmap
by Karen Albright, PhD ; Demetria McNeal, PhD, MBA
Seminar date: 3/2/2022
Description: Description: As part of the Veterans Access Research Consortium, the Stakeholder Engagement Workgroup has engaged with access researchers within and outside VA, Veterans, and VA operational partners to solicit perspectives about the most important access-related research domains for VA to address in the next decade. Recent efforts from the workgroup include conducting (1) a modified Delphi panel, (2) a series of dialogues with Veteran Engagement Boards, (3) surveying and conducting individual interviews with operational partners, and (4) contributing to the creation of a research roadmap that incorporates findings from these efforts with a portfolio review of current and recent HSR&D and operationally-funded studies on access. The goal of this work is to inform VA HSR&D’s funding priorities for access research and, thus, the direction of the field. This Cyberseminar will describe the highest priority access-related questions that emerged from this process and suggest opportunities to bridge research and operational interests.

Engaging Stakeholders in Identifying VA Access Research and Evaluation Priorities: A Foundation for the Access Research Roadmap
by Karen Albright, PhD ; Demetria McNeal, PhD, MBA
Seminar date: 1/6/2021
Description: The Stakeholder Engagement Workgroup engages access researchers within and outside VA, Veterans, and VA operational partners to solicit their perspectives about the most important access-related research domains for VA to address in the next decade. The ultimate goal of this work is to inform VA HSR&D’s funding priorities for access research and, thus, help shape the direction of the field. Recent efforts from the workgroup include conducting (1) a modified Delphi panel and (2) a series of dialogues with Veteran Advisory Boards (VABs). The Delphi process involved a multi-round engagement of 22 access researchers and VA operational partners, in which these experts identified important access related questions and then ranked them in terms of priority for VA support. Veterans’ perspectives on those questions and domains were then solicited from VABs in Iowa City, IA; Ann Arbor, MI; and Bedford, MA. This CyberSeminar will describe the engagement involved in this work and the highest priority access-related questions that emerged from the process.
