Workspace Session Reports from NCDD Boston Event

The “workspace session” towards the end of the day at the NCDD Boston Event (October 29, 2010) provided participants with an opportunity to discuss and work through ongoing cases or key issues in the field. At the end of the sessions, facilitators were asked to briefly answer the following questions:

  1. What key points or insights from your conversation would you like us to post on the NCDD blog?
  2. What plans, if any, do you have to continue this conversation after the meeting?

In the hope of continuing these conversations after the event, we have compiled the answers to these questions and information on who to contact to join any of the continuing conversations.  Download the workspace reports here.

Thank you to our workspace leaders for leading these thought-provoking sessions and submitting their summaries!
