Research doesn’t have to be difficult! The BetaGov team will help you every step of the way: from your very first inkling of how you want to change your agency programs, procedures, or processes to the final reporting of trial results. We are here to help you identify what needs to be tested and how to best accomplish your goals so that you can be confident that the new program you implement is more beneficial than the program it replaced, that your efforts to improve staff satisfaction will reduce turnover, and that changes in agency management processes will increase productivity and efficiency.
To build sustainable research capacity with our partners, we emphasize a learning model called "Pracademia," offering practitioner training, workshops, and knowledge-sharing sessions. In recorded Pracademia sessions, we provide an general introduction to research (topics include trial design, randomization, ethics, project implementation, regulatory requirements, data analysis, and preparing findings for dissemination), as well as examples from real BetaGov research. This helps our often research-limited partners to visualize how the research concept applies and is implemented in the BetaGov model. We are building additional modules to be posted soon.
