Group Concept Mapping Publications Spotlight

This month, researchers utilized the method to develop a user-friendly tool to help guide implementation projects; to review barriers to making healthier choices; to work with patients to understand emergency department use and develop a value-based care model; in education to understand faculty reporting and to develop a programming model; and to better understand outreach to vulnerable populations.

If you’ve published in the last few months and don’t see your publication below, please get in touch with us.  We want to share your work with others and learn from it ourselves.  Thank you to all the authors who have provided us with publications.

Congratulations, authors!

What Authors are Saying About Group Concept Mapping

“The participatory process encourages youth to fully take part in authoring the framework, while the resulting visualizations also retain sufficient simplicity for youth to meaningfully interpret multiple perspectives within the context of their worldview. In addition to being well-suited for use with teens and young adults, the concept mapping method is designed to collect and aggregate perspectives from multiple subgroups of interest. This approach therefore provided a means for exploring nuances in the convergence and divergence among teen, young adult, and adult professional perspectives in their own words, and in a way that standard survey methods using pre-developed scales are less able to capture.”
