The second seminar in the 'Frontiers for Network Analysis in Health Services Research and Implementation Science' Series will be delivered by Dr Amanda Beacom
on December 6th at 4:00-5:30
PM Eastern Time.
The talk is entitled "Multilevel Perspectives on the Diffusion of Health Care Best Practices".
is a Visiting Scholar at the Carroll School of Management, Boston
College. Her research aims to increase our understanding of how
knowledge is communicated in organizational networks, particularly in
health contexts. She holds a PhD in communication from the University of
Southern California and a master's degree in health policy from Johns
Hopkins University. She recently completed a postdoctoral fellowship at
the University of Alberta Faculty of Nursing.Abstract:While
scholars have developed a rich understanding of diffusion in
interpersonal knowledge networks--and, to a lesser extent, in
inter-organizational networks--we know much less about how knowledge and
best practices diffuse simultaneously across people, organizations, and
other types of actors within a population, sector, or industry. For
example, in planning a dissemination strategy, how might
inter-organizational network data enhance what we know about an
interpersonal network? Do opinion leading individuals tend to work in
opinion leading organizations? What new insights can we gain from
considering information technologies, as well as the people, as another
type, or level, of actor in diffusion networks? In this talk, I review
some obstacles to and advances in multilevel network analysis, and
present two of my own research projects that examine the diffusion of
health care best practices in multilevel networks.
