Dissemination Research and Implementation Science Seminar: Implementing a Youth Advisory Board to Inform Adolescent Health and Medication Safety Research

March 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Description from UW ICTR:

Youth are rarely included in the design, implementation, and evaluation of medication safety research. There is a lack of literature describing adolescents as advisors in health services research in pharmacy. The creation of a youth advisory board (YAB) provides a platform for youth to contribute to the design and implementation of research aimed at improving health and medication use in the pediatric population. This presentation will describe the development, benefits, challenges, and lessons learned from the first YAB at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW) Collaborative Research on MEdication use & family health (CRoME) Lab alongside feedback from the youth members.
