NNCI Working Group Pages

One of the greatest strengths of the NNCI network is the combined staff expertise of the individual sites. To leverage this expertise at the network level, working groups composed of staff members from the NNCI sites have been created.

The outcomes of these working groups can have many forms, including process recipes, recommendations to vendors for future equipment development, maintenance and training videos/webinars, recommendations on how to evaluate the safety of new processes, or direct recommendations for new users. 

New website pages for technical working groups have recently been added which contain (a) list of group members with contact information, (b) a news blog for posting of content by the working group, and (c) a public forum for posting of questions with follow-up discussion.
