Hi Kathrine,

Good to see you hear!

I share a similar sentiment in that I feel that I haven’t done enough as I go through these exercises, however I feel that applying the lessons learned will take my site’s stakeholder engagement to the next level.  I commend you for taking steps to hold focus groups and trying to understand the relationship between the trial site and the community.  It’s the beginnings of developing a good relationship.

As I read through the different posts, I thought about, “What can I do now?”  I began to reflect on focus groups we held among transpeople last summer through fall.  The data is still being analyzed, but will be ready by the end of May.  My next step is to create the opportunity to share the data with the focus group participants and other transpeople.  Perhaps that is something you can also do with the findings of your focus groups.
