About the Committees:

The PCHA-UHA Research and Learning Collaborative is developing infrastructure for research collaboration between Stanford faculty and PCHA and UHA providers. PCHA and UHA have separate committees to assist in the oversight of the research and education for their respective organizations.

PCHA Research & Education Committee

The PCHA Research & Education Committee consists of leadership from the Stanford School of Medicine, PCHA, and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. The Committee advises the PCHA Board on planning, direction, coordination and oversight of PCHA research & education activities. All research activities related to PCHA must be approved by the Research & Education Committee. 

UHA Research & Education Committee

The UHA Research & Education Committee consists of leadership from the Stanford School of Medicine, UHA, and Stanford Health Care. The Committee advises the UHA Board on planning, direction, coordination and oversight of UHA research and education activities.  

Interest in Research:

PCHA Provider Research Interest:

During Fall 2017, the Research and Learning Collaborative distributed a survey to PCHA providers to gain a better understanding of research interests, participation in continuing medical education (CME), and training.

Few PCHA providers were actively participating in research, but many survey respondents designated their interest in research.

UHA Provider Research Interest:

In 2016, the Research and Learning Collaborative conducted structured interviews with 6 UHA medical groups to survey current research activities, interest in research, training activities, and participation in CME activities. All participating UHA medical groups showed interest in conducting research. 

UHA providers showed interest in diabetes research, health services research, quality improvement or quality studies, and clinical trials at the Cancer Center South Bay.
