PCR activities include developing an agenda of research projects and activities including the design, distribution, implementation, analyses, and presentation of findings of multi-site studies and/or quality improvement efforts involving clubhouses. The PCR engages the ICCD, clubhouse programs, staff and faculty at UMMS and other academic institutions, and/or consultants to assure timely performance of project work. The PCR educates the international clubhouse community about research and research methods. In addition, the PCR provides technical assistance, training, and/or consultation to clubhouses, mental health administrators, students, and/or researchers considering participation in research projects involving clubhouses.
