Abstract

There is a continuous requirement to understand complex human diseases. Recently, the need for a rising awareness in understanding a pandemic such as H1N1, and its preventative measures will most likely lie within many disciplines. The coalescing of such disciplines can be described through the notion of a distributed community of practice (DCoP). DCoP offers a way of describing and understanding how different sectors can collaborate and work together on issues of shared concern. This approach was tested in many disciplines with a considerable level of success. This paper presents DCoP as a proof of the concept and a platform for engaging clinicians, researchers, policymakers, students and communities to work together in addressing complex clinical problems; through data sharing and social networking. It then describes stakeholders’ methodology as a potential research approach for analysing and understanding needs, expectations and technological requirements for establishing a DCoP for health research and innovation.
