*Abstract:** In order to create and translate knowledge for action and
change, researchers engage with knowledge users – such as patients,
providers or communities – who must ultimately take ownership of the issue
under study and the means of addressing it. Social network analysis
provides useful tools for measuring changes in levels of engagement and
ownership over the course of a researcher-knowledge user partnership. This
talk will introduce social networks and basic concepts and measures from
social network analysis, and provide results from a study tracking the
evolution of community stakeholder ownership.*

*In person or webinar presentations and Q/As will be broadcast online, and
will be archived on the IHPME website. You can watch the recorded videos of
