Partnered Evidence-Based Policy Resource Center
PEPReC Technical Advisory Council
The Technical Advisory Council is comprised of senior VA researchers and clinicians with experience conducting partnered evaluations and managing resource centers as well as nationally known academics with an interest in randomized program evaluation.
The Technical Advisory Committee engages with center staff and HSR&D/QUERI leadership regarding ways to ensure that scholarly standards are maintained while research plans are adapted to provide timely responses to the needs of operations and policy partners. They also provide technical review of research protocols and help set priorities for generalizable research.
In consultation with the Technical Advisory Committee, PEPReC will seek opportunities to conduct workshops at national scholarly meetings and offer cyberseminars through channels established by HSR&D. We will also consult with HSR&D and QUERI leadership about other dissemination and education options including meetings focused specifically on partnered evaluation.
