Beginning in September, clinicians and scientists looking to form research collaborations can begin using a new tool to identify one another.
ASHA will launch CLARC (Clinicians and Researchers Collaborating), a searchable online tool that is free to ASHA members.
Participants enroll as a clinician or a researcher and then search the CLARC database to identify a potential research "match." The pair then follows up with each other to gather more information, determine the appropriateness of the match, and discuss the nature of the collaboration.
Participants can establish collaborations with colleagues regardless of location, and may collaborate with many others or choose to limit the number of collaboration requests. Partnerships decide how, when and where to work together.
The nature of the clinician-researcher collaboration will vary according to the needs of the participants: clinical populations of interest, access to clinical populations, learning about research design, administering assessment or treatment protocols, identifying and measuring clinical outcomes, or other interests.
The program also keeps track of participants' matches, offers discussion forums on CLARC topics, and has a search feature for resources on CLARC collaborations. For more information, contact research@asha.org.
