Using Social Network Analysis to Measure Coalition Collaboration: A Case of Community Roundtables


Hello everyone thank you for joining our
webinar my name is Mohammad Khalaf senior manager comprehensive cancer control at
GW Cancer Center our webinar is titled using social network analysis to measure
coalition collaboration a case of community round tables I would like to
thank and acknowledge the support from CDC for this work without further ado
I’d like to introduce Kanako Kashima Kanako Kashima formerly worked at the GW cancer center where she led the planning implementation and evaluation of
multiple capacity building projects for national comprehensive cancer control
programs and coalition currently Conoco is a director of health equity community
projects at the American Cancer Society where she’s leading the development of
community leadership teams across the country charged with tackling health
equity issues within their organizations and communities clinical the floor is
yours Thank You Mohammad and GW Cancer Center
for having me today to present on using social network analysis to measure
coalition collaboration and I will be using their community round tables as a
case study by the end of the presentation you will be able to define
social network analysis and describe ways to use social network analysis to
monitor the development of relationships and improve program delivery so what is
a social network and network is a set of nodes or individuals or organizations
denoted by the black circles with a set of ties or social relations that link
them and those are denoted by the arrows so to put it another way social network
analysis is the study of these social relations among a set of individuals or
organizations just as a disclaimer I am NOT a social network analysis expert or
researcher but a practitioner I have experience applying social network
analysis in public health and I attended a workshop a couple of years ago
organized this man on your screen called Steve for Gatti’s and he’s at the
University of Kentucky and is an industry leader in so
we’ll network analysis research so at this point I would like to show two
minutes of this video from University of Kentucky in which dr. Bohr Gotti briefly
outlines the study of social networks and it’s significant I will say I’m
somewhat sorry in advance if the audio is it great but GW Cancer Center will be
distributing the slides after the webinar so you can access the link from
there about the world around you you kind of have to learn something about
networks this is a crack pipes and through will network things to flow the
person pushing degree in organizations what I study is helping get done that’s
how work hips done is how we coordinate you know the three hundred and seventy
thousand people that were private how do they all work is differently done it’s
through formal and informal networks I mostly sunny centrality which is the
concept of the advantage that accrues to a node by virtue of its position in the
network so some noes are more central and there are certain advantages to that
so for example one way in which you could be central is that you’re not far
from everybody else to network a few steps in between people like that and to
hear things faster something Croatia sources over here early when they can
take advantage of it one other thing that essential people have is that
they’re connected to lots of different hops this is part of the network this
part over here is talking about third things this part talking about certain
things and the person has to be connected suppose to realize that the
problem that they’ve got has already been solved by back you commit and
really provide a lot of value great and I hope that video starts to get you into
the idea of the study of social network analysis the different players that are
in place in terms of the nodes and the various ties that influence those nodes
there are some basic assumptions of social network analysis that we should
take into account and these assumptions can also be limits to social network
analysis because if these assumptions do not hold up for various reasons that may
be unique to the circumstances you are trying to a
your results may be less meaningful so one assumption is the influence of
kinship being a mother of somebody or being a husband if somebody will have an
influence on what your relationship is like with your counterpart in terms of
the type of kinship you have roles also matter between bosses and the
supervisees or a teacher and a student there are also perceptual differences
and influences between nodes like if you know somebody or if you know the name of
somebody that may not necessarily have interacted with them in person your
relationship type would be different from somebody who works day-to-day with
a colleague for example there are affective differences so whether you
like a person or whether you trust a person will be different depending on
the types of relationships you have with somebody and there are interactive
differences so maybe you give advice to certain people but not others or receive
funding from certain grantees but not others and work with different
individuals within your organization but not others and there are also different
types of affiliations that influence who you work with and the types of
relationships you have with them so you could be in the same organization and
working together or you could be by association of geography working
together as well and there are other assumptions are things like the fact
that ideas materials flow through these relationships and that these structures
of relationships have some consequences so as you can see historically social
network analysis has been used to leverage some of these assumptions to
assess the spread of infectious diseases so for example some researchers have
used social network analysis to determine the hubs and the kinds of
relationships that promote injection drug use or the spread of HIV but social
network analysis is being used more and more recently to assess changes and
organizational structures and collaborative let’s say that this is a coalition made
up of three different organizations so you can see a B and C in these different
colors on the notes on this map and this map was created by asking the question
who do you stand relevant information to and you can see the organization lever
extends and receives information from each other by looking at the direction
of the arrows so you can see here a sends information and communicate with
puppies so if you concede number a asked from organization a send information to
TV but TV does not send information to Aida so it’s not advised directional
early trip ship you can also see that members of organization in general to
the nose in red do not communicate with each other through this network at all
because you can see AF has no ties to change TV over here and neither of them
are connected to any of the other organizational members these are see how
some communication channels here but these folks are not connected to JT at
4:00 a.m. and they suppose it was work in a same organization so this will be
easy to conclude that a or JP should not be coalition representatives to
organization a and that you need to create a more targeted individual
approach to send opinions and information of the coalition she is and
JG on the other parent you can see organization scene and green right here
are very more connected over a very tight network that could send
information to each other very well it would cease information from each
other and this is an example of what they call a complete network because
each member and organization see is in contact to the west have been under is
an organization see so from this information you might conclude that you
only need a one member in organization C news or information
that says and training you to be assured that the rest of the organization will
also be in the know and that you don’t need to communicate with each individual
independently this digital network map can also be used to assess who you
should interview when you are conducting these assessments or coalition
evaluation this for example in shady from organization a GG for an
organization B and P W and BB for an organization C might be good key
informants to asked about factors that facilitate information sharing so you
can leverage those people and factors melanda future and you may also
interview JT over here in its organization na who receives information
from TV that nobody else in the coalition’s about barriers to
communication and you can also also absence person develop maybe ways and
suggestions to make communication easier so that this person can be better
integrated and the coalition so industry official network analysis can be helpful
for a program or coalition planning evaluation and improvement and GW Cancer
Center chose to assess connections on an individual level instead of caliph shown
in this graph which is an assessment on the organizational level so at the part
of this cooperative agreement we organized community roundtable with the
goal of convening key cancer and chronic disease stakeholders and strengthening
the partnerships of a community state or regional level to promote increased
integration efforts between the tooth group this was in response to CDC’s
observation and direction for more cancer control programs and coalition’s
to collaborate with each other and through their quantities peers to
review useful bit of effort save resources and ultimately advance the
mission and force it mix them to increase collaboration between the
stakeholders working on cancer issues and other chronic disease issues this is
we know that they share common risk factors as this graph from the loss of
Department of Health and Social Services really nicely shows our hostess that
that the round table meeting would provide stakeholders an opportunity to
share their work find overlapping old and work together on mutually beneficial
initiatives because after all hope you know that collaboration save time and
precious resources so we chose to work through the area health education
centers there are more than 300 area health education centers or eight houses
across the country and they work to enhance access to care by including the
supply and distribution but healthcare professional and do utensil center
decided that a task for ideal agents to swing cancer and chronic disease
disorders together this is a very community vanilla over connection and we
also found in a campus control needs assessments that we conducted in 2013
that the representative the interviews says they were mutual or were not at all
engaged and comprehensive cancer control activities so we saw a need for making
those connections right off the bat and ultimately for a s were chosen by GW
Cancer Center through its competitive application process to host three
roundtables this is a very strong community level
history and connections this map shows the location of the school HS and they
were in South Dakota over launched Kentucky and Ford
favorite was done for different ages of CDC’s National Center for chronic
disease prevention and health promotion region the community roundtable was
organized to convene one day year between 2015 and 2017 and they were all
in person and we also organized a six-month
follow-up call each year online CA paths along with the planning committees
selected one prompt disease risk factor that remained constant throughout these
three years and those are listed on the left-hand side and one strategies that
we made that change this year to advance cancer and chronic disease intervention
efforts and a comprehensive way and these chronic disease risk factors and
strategies were informed by national and local data compiled and state profiles
of GW Cancer Center as well as national priorities and reserves of opportunities
and you can read more about this GW campus natural resource called take
chances and priority alignment resource guide and tool by clicking on the Sydney
or visiting absolutely.i our own so to evaluate the round table initiative we
administer standard pre and post meeting surveys that is defcon5 outcomes and
satisfaction which is really easy to date but because the bull with a round
table is to convene key stakeholders in cancer and chronic disease by Road and
transgender logicians of the community state and regional levels from the
increased integration effort we wanted to dedicate more time luxuriating that
collaboration as well so we have received questions about health care
professional coalition’s because we measure coalition
collaboration as well and I think that won’t be learned through our initiative
through the community around tables is very applicable
or measuring coalition collaboration so here is the type of surveys we created
for each around people attendee at each of the four roundtable locations to
complete on average the round people chat about 20 to 30 people in attendance
so the number of rows and this matrix will be a longer one we needed each
attendee we asked each attendee about all of the other attendees so how they
know them if data at all how often they contact them I’ll often they stand to
receive information or technical assistance to or from them and how much
they trust them so as you can probably tell how they eat the candy since it’s
the matrix of six twenty to thirty people can take time which is one of the
challenges of collecting social network analysis data and another challenge to
keep in mind is the completeness of data because digital network analysis heavily
depends on high distinction rates which is something to keep in mind as you
consider employing social network analysis to evaluate your cancer control
coalition so I thought I would give you one example
what city Harry Potter is conceding the future network analysis so Jenny that
was created to assess the network with students at the Hogwarts School of
Witchcraft and Wizardry he would leave the fruit blend disappear
I just didn’t any evaluating and fall but ii wrote is it asking him to
evaluate his relationship with Hermione Granger and Miami is her respect fund so
he would indicate her as being personal friends doing within the same dormitory
and share every applicant through life together so how are you would indicate
that he and home are any as crack that exchange information every
day and you’ll also indicate that if you have a high level of trust in her on the
other hand feature amount arises on the next step down is school bully and Harry
will know him as a lab partner and might have weekly or through contact with him
that you may not share will receive school secrets and office with him and
if you certainly would have a very high level of trust in Draco so in the state
each network member will complete the same survey and assess the relationship
with all the members of that network and the questions can be adjusted depending
on the type of information you want to collect collide and so we employed this
strategy specifically when they assess the community roundtable so the roundtable participants and
floorspace again Kentucky Vermont Florida and South Dakota completed the
online surveys before the roundtables in 2050 in 2016 and 2017 we use the
software called UCI net that’s just one network analysis software to access to
the networks and working relationships and any changes that happen in between
each meeting so let’s take a look at North East Kentucky first northeast
Kentucky Cancer Alliance is a professional
net to tackle common health objectives to do tobacco and the region is
highlighted in yellow on the map how do you know Chancellor professional
how to speak in tobacco use as it causes a number of different types of cancers
including wine call one and cervical cancers heart disease professionals in
general also have a stake in tobacco just use a thin links to an area the
disease in those two days heart diseases asthma and dental diseases and round
people attendees identified activities that integrates cancer chronic disease
insurance and committed to work on them together so here is the summary of what
they achieved by the end of 2013 the mortgage Kentucky Kentucky community
roundtable identified and incorporated local and national fishing Saskatchewan
resources and states where regional medical center of electronic medical
records so providers can use Layla for patient’s 215 cessation resources they
also developed and pilot tested this breeds tobacco treatment specialist
training which provides 27 hours of online training and includes content
consistent with core competencies established by the Association for the
treatment of tobacco use and attended these are great outcomes from simply
getting a group of cancer and chronic disease professionals to community and
to work with one another five houses reflected and the social network to take
a look so here is the social networks maps of how often they communicate the
nose border mountable numbers are just squares and the relationships are
denoted it’s hi connecting the nose so the sticker is aligned some more
frequently to report of communicating with one another the Bluenose our
chances of nationals de gallo are chronic disease professional-grade says
major and white did not answer that specific question did just my eyes
always a map from 2015 2016 and 2017 in this case you can’t really tell me all
the developments of the relationship although the network in 2017 does
notably appear smaller because we have a lot of contagion rates out of the three
years so let’s have a look at the data
Kentucky started with a very strong Network and in fact it was the strongest
of all the board ground cable cubby house
it helped of the attack was to be the meeting and they were very well
respected and already integrated as a part of the regional hospital and
frequently Maryland academics as well the average degree indicator which is
the first indicator displays here tells us fifty percent on average new
approximately seven other people at the roundtable in 2015 and this number went
down to size by 2017 this isn’t expected to a certain extent as new members
interest in the initiative who may not have been well connected initially are
brought in between the first and second round table so for examples as the issue
of e-cigarettes became more prevalent and concerns over their whole spots
because consequences increased can then be decided to lightly go beyond just
tobacco and bring on subject matter experts and eight cigarettes as well so
as these new lines came in to be a part of thinning Network they’re likely had
an effect on numbers like two times the average degree indicator and similarly
average distance between the purposes also increased which means that on
average the number of top people will have to make to get from person a to
person B or to get connected and to them increase so actually here the smaller
the number the better again this is mostly due to new members
being added to the round people who may not fit well-connected initially the
both average degree in distance indicator of told us that the challenge
for Kentucky would have been to strengthen these new relationships but
as you can see diodes worth of property increased to from twelve
and 2015 to 30% and 2017 so this means communication between participants
became increasingly more difficult and that the conversations were
deteriorating and not send forth Matta and it wasn’t just one way communication so let’s look at the round people in
Vermont and the attendees areas of a round table at the Champlain Valley
healthy lifestyle calebrage and as the name suggests this market will chose
nutrition and physical activity as the topics and the region is highlighted in
yellow on a map and after you know again ten
professional devastation promoting nutrition ethical activity because it
causes a number of different types of cancers including daily trio and lung
cancers and chronic disease professionals also have a statement for
loading the addition of physical activity this use has been linked to
heart disease diabetes and Stroke so the roundtable attendees identified
activities that integrate cancer and cottages use intro so the Champlain
Valley healthy lifestyle collaborative partnered with Vermont Department of
Health to amplify and increase to reach of the three 450 communication campaigns
that increases awareness of the benefits of physical activity and nutrition to
prevent diseases around people also identified a small to medium-sized
employer and obtained commitment from them to make for 350 450 as part of
their work work schedule nets initiative so again these are promising outcomes
but let’s look at how its reflected in the network so here with social network maps again
for Vermont and some idol in the maps you can tell that the chronic disease
professionals in yellow are better integrated and the network in 2016
compared to 2015 the network size again is smaller and 2017 because of low
survey completion rate in addition the strength of ties between the nose feeds
that increases as the lines are bigger bigger so now let’s look at the data
itself Champlain Valley actually has a weaker social network at the beginning
of the round table initiatives compared to the other three sites but round
people participants appreciated the opportunity to share their programs with
each other and we’ve been hearing a lot of that feedback qualitatively and
didn’t have very strong leadership is to get enough room for that defense so the
number of connections for a 10-gauge increase from 5 and 2015 – sorry – only
ten and 2016 but then it went back down consistent high 17 similarly the
distance between the participants decreased slightly which is good from
two point one seven 21.73 from 2015 to 2017 and finally difficult communication
decrease to the attraction informs that in terms of future program development
for this region that there needs to be more increase to engagement and
back-and-forth communication and work to foster those reciprocal communication
between participants so the third round tables are teaching the Florida and like
Champlain Valley Florida trips differences their integrated activities
on nutrition and physical activity the meeting took place in Tampa
in the cold through South Florida region which is highlighted in dark blue on the
map so let’s look at what they achieved many members of the Southwest Tampa
control collaborative the regional cancer control coalition attends of the
roundtable detect a year and they decided to include collaboration with
chronic disease projects as a priority under two years strategic plan the
Florida round we will also conducted a training to assist community health
workers with tools and knowledge to promote colorectal cancer prevention
through healthy eating and increased physical activity so the answers are
pretty good progress on working together and when you look at the maps as you can
see it’s apparent from just looking at them the network has become more
tight-knit and more connections have been made and the tribe ties of
strengthened because the sea tides to cause thicker but you can also see that
cancer and chronic disease groups denoted by the blue and yellow boxes
seem to have separated instead of separate corners by 2020 so luckily look
at the data so if you can see Laura started off with the v6 network of the
full roundtable that managed to slightly increase the average number of
connections in the network and similarly the distance between the attendees
decreased from above to and 2058 to below – and from 2010 and changing which
is great and although the reciprocal communication a trapeze from 2015 to
2015 it just go back down again in 2017 which might reflect the attic total
feedback that we receive that the work group activities and leadership were
becoming more concentrated to obtain people and from 17
so the last limitation was South Dakota and South Dakota community 20 will also
choose to focus on her cancer chronic disease integration efforts on nutrition
and physical activity but with a special focus on increasing access to resources
I’ve been worse see South Dakota region for which the hosting a half he was
responsible for I highlighted and brown on the mouth and as a caveat I would say
that the Northeast opportunity heck who was the convener for the roundtable
experienced some instability with their leadership of the director and
coordinator gets down at around the same time and 2015
so due to consistent instability and the eight – GW mutually agreed to enter
round table dr. 2015 so I will show you the available results from the two
roundtables that were held so that’s the code of community roundtable if not – –
and eventually ended up mapping diabetes prevention programs and local resources
across the state and dis collaborated with cancer clinics to increase
referrals to the diabetes prevention program and they ultimately produced on
electronic referral policies for clinicians to refer patients to the
diabetes prevention program with the State Health Department which was
modeled after the smoking cessation referral policy so cheer on – this will
network now from 2015 and 2016 and it does appear that the cancer
professionals in blue are better integrated into the network in 2015
compared to the first round tables in 2015 so let’s take a look at the
indicators as well so south dakota started the round tables with a very
strong network the only exception to the one in Kentucky and
although the average number of relationships per attendee went down
slightly from 2015 to 2016 these indicators mirror what attendees had
todo which was that practicode of public health professionals whether they work
in cancer or cracked chronic disease at the communicate frequently to keep each
other clothes especially because there are Geographic challenges of working in
such a large state that is mostly rural average distance between a native
participant lines up slightly and communication reckless reckless paucity
went down and these members likely reflect the challenges South Dakota
receives with the 8x leadership in flood as I mentioned South Dakota ATX director
and coordinator stepped down between 2015 and 2016 and the position was not
filled for six months so that’s that sort of significant down grow on
engagement and implementation of activities and that to do what is
reflected in the shared social network maps here so in this way
GW camp Accenture use social network analysis to triangulate cold hooves
qualitative feedback that we received and demonstrate the developmental
relationship which may be a priority for your cancer control coalition as well in
addition to process outcomes and qualitative feedback from recipients and
participants as well as the observed successes we were able to use
quantitative data from the social network analysis to back up this claim
which is helpful when recording to funders and stakeholders we also use
digital network analysis to monitor college progress and identify areas for
improvement and address program delivery accordingly and although we did not do
this for the roundtables social network analysis can also be used to identify
stakeholders academics then that works stronger or identifies key stakeholders
that can help you leverage their connections and influence in the network
to further concludes outcomes of your program social network analysis helps
abused valuable one of these ways to evaluate your cancer control coalition
as well another thing to keep in mind is comprehensive campus control coalition’s
can choose to assess organizational level collaboration instead of
individual level collaboration absolutely just here for the community
roundtable in fact this organizational level collaboration may help with
limiting the effects of new members being added and people leaving the
coalition as well because organizational representation tends to remain pretty
constant even if individual members can go again
social network analysis is very G’s and also evolving methods and the other
thing your coalition may want to look fast as whether this method is important
and feasible for you so if you’re complimenting campus control program or
coalition you decide that this is the type of evaluation that they want to
pursue and it’s a priority I recommend seeing if your coalition
members houses of expertise in their organization because some programs have
internal evaluators that could have the very best help create instruments and
analyze the results and it’s about these nice now if they look for for you but at
the very least so you can also provide further advice on days before and give
you directions on whether this method is right for you so we have reviewed the community and
how people evaluation report that outlines process and evaluation more in
depth on what I support on TV on this webinar and also highlight some
successes and challenges of the program itself and if you’re interested in
looking at some of the tutorial to use – – for the meetings and for the
activities that we conducted in the meetings we solve they’re available in
to support so you can access that by going to that fifth wheel 8 I also
wanted to take a moment to point you to some additional official network
analysis – resources the American evaluation Association is a great
resource for more training they have a bunch of development workshops and have
one coming up this year and October in Cleveland Ohio
I certainly attended the evaluation Association conference last year and
they had a number of workshops dedicated to social network analysis that I’ve
listed here so I would recommend keeping an eye out for any announcements that
might come up as they solidify their gender attend and workshop content and I
also know that GW Cancer Center is always adapting for ways and no topic on
which to provide technical assistance and if social network analysis is truly
an age for technical assistance please be sure to complete the evaluation poll
at the very end of the webinar before you leave so so that you can inform for
event planning and for the future and here are some additional material
official network analysis that may be helpful and again I think you know me
cancer cancer is distributing the slides after the webinar so you can click on
the hyperlink for them more your own and here are the references I
think they also might be the resources for you to review as well to learn more
about social network analysis thank you Chronicle for a wonderful presentation
is very informative on the disk lot at this time we’d like to open it up for
questions and answers if you would like to ask Conoco a
question or make a comment please use the raise hand feature on the right of
your screen and we can call on you and unmute your line
alternatively you can also use the chat box or Q&A box on the right of your
screen we already have two questions one was sent via chat from Ricky Campbell
clinical we’re gonna go back to the slide on communication flow in coalition
networks and the question on that with was what an example of who these people
would be be as follows for example or interdiction pay would be leadership
organization D would be communications team and organization C would be general
membership one of the I I’m very impressed with how come you had able to
decipher the social network map yeah that’s one way to interpret it I would
say that if you were looking at this networking and have no idea – those are
what those organizations are they took I think you can see the types of
communication they have and decipher how they work so use that organization a is
leadership right and video services you can see that there’s a lot of
unidirectional communication happening a lot of people telling the others what to
do maybe we’re giving them direction on projects an organization be at Kristy
communication because they seem to have fairly good
outfitting communication channels and secrecy general membership I mean they
have there are so state network of excess or for debate or they’re
communicating with each other very well again as a representation you can assess
service gaps and communication might be as well and I think that’s just terms of
being able to map out a coalition like this to see where those communication
channels based just them and also for you to identify organizations or
individuals that are key in bringing all those organizations together
great thank you clerical our second question is from Brad Richardson Brad
we’re going to take a moment to onion your line so you can ask your question okay so we just receive your question us
understanding that you don’t have a light and reflection Chronicle is how is
die and reciprocity measured what would be the equivalent measure in you see
that so diagnostic quantity basically from Disturbia that you administer you
ask them how often do you communicate to this person and if the other person says
state don’t communicate to you then you can understand them that it’s only a one
directional communication method it’s supposed to use day that you communicate
frequently with one another in a daze and how that apply directional so the
indicator itself takes the average of those reciprocal relationships and as a
ratio of those are only unidirectional or have no connection all great and then
another question is from Melissa Chapman hey and you have suggested Lisa
is for doing a social networking analysis to evaluate the value added by
participation in the network I mean I let me know if I’m not interpreting your
question correctly what being able to construct like we did a social network
indicator than that that are basically pre and post whatever intervention that
you do simple example if you decide at the very beginning of the year that the
impedance integration area are in a better communication is important for
your coloration you can take a baseline approach and then it’s or those surveys
up funds and then at the end of the year see if there are any changes hopefully
you have strengthened throughout the year so in terms of value added you can
attribute basically any organizational or coalition improvements that you may
do throughout that year to do changes that you see in the social network
analysis the map is an answer exception we’ll wait for Melissa to confirm yes
great Thank You Monica so it isn’t this year that we have any more questions
we’ll give it a few seconds to see if we see anything in the chat or see any more
hands raised so we have a question on the software
what software is available to conduct social networking announcements there
are several types of software that can be used to do similar work QW Transit
Center decided to use UCI net it’s a software developed by dr. Bohr copy that
I interview see whether very beginning at the presentation and they determined
this because they are a leader in research and analysis or social
networking how to use vision about analysis and you excuse the idea that
the very hands-on workshop so if you’re interested and that would be something I
look into but you can open mind with other lower software that is that could
be more cost-effective as well so I would do a little bit of digging to be
what works best for your programs in your coalition great thank you and we do
have another question through the resonance feature if you would you are
unmuted and higher agrees you’re welcome to ask the question how is he I think it market RVs I see
her questions through the Q&A she’s off Talia constructed maps because this is
an evaluation lighter so I can go ahead and after or did not question the amount
it is basically sent out through a correspondence on Tyler :
we purchase you see IMS to input to be social networks data that you’ve
collected through your survey instruments there is an algorithm an
algorithm that is maybe all my data out some indicators I showed you today that
the corresponding software columns next draw also fits out these beautiful growl
for you so that you can see digital work annotations of your data so in terms of
that assistance measuring that distance and evaluation measure and having that
being shown on a map I cannot tell people a program what kind
of algorithm and mathematics they use to calculate that but from a user
perspective from a practitioner click boxes it’s very easy because all you
need to do this input these enable data column and the query will be in the dark
for you thanks conical and sister if you send a question via chat or Q&A make
sure that you indicate that it’s public so that we as facilitators can also see
it in case the speaker is working or looking at their slides and not the
questions but we appreciate clinical capturing that because you didn’t see it
here so again thank you for all your questions I do have a follow-up from
Judy the question is it seems like in order to do fna you have to be confident
that you’ve identified all partners what if this is not the case what happens if
a key partner is missing that’s a great question thank you Judy
for our circumstance with the community round tables we knew who we wanted to
analyze because it was a contained network in other words we knew we wanted
to analyze those who were sitting and remember the meeting with themselves so
we come from education and attendance numbers people to a do to expect that it
was contained network analysis I know from my from my previous research with
social network analysis that when you’re doing more expansive network analysis
some researchers have used the snowball method to ask people to recommend other
people or name other people to describe their relationships with them so you do
network basically stands as other people you mentioned others who may be partners
click them the Natalie your network expands as people get more references
into the network but that’s not that’s really useful really if you’re doing an
analysis that’s outside of your coalition’s birthday if you’re analyzing
your coalition hopefully you know who your members are and you can have
different criteria to define who you want to analyze with any a coalition
Thank You Conoco um any more questions we’ll give another 30 seconds to see if
we see any hands or anything else in the chat box okay um hearing none can I move along
and feel free as I talk through the next few slides to add your questions which
we did address in the next ten minutes as well please I wanted to mention our
action for PSU change.org website which is a great resource for planning and
showcasing policy systems and environmental change initiatives and
