Group Concept Mapping Publications Spotlight

Group Concept Mapping Publications Spotlight

This month, we share GCM applications in pediatric health conceptualization, drivers of the bio-economy, evidence-based occupational therapy development, and tobacco cessation strategies.

The variety of applications of our method is rewarding for us to see, and to send to you to trigger your research thinking.  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 use of concept mapping methodology improved the ecological validity of the study findings because the results were developed within the cultural frameworks of Southeast Asian refugees…To our knowledge, this is one of few mixed methods studies that examines childhood- obesity related outcomes within Southeast Asian refugee subgroups (i.e., Cambodian, Laotian, and Hmong) and provides significant insights into their perceptions of the risk and protective factors for childhood obesity that may be important for future interventions.”
