Breakout Discussions by Profession
Facilitator Worksheet
Monday, September 29, 2003
3:15 4:15 p.m.

Intended Outcomes

  • Meet with related professionals and establish network if not already in place
  • Review issues raised during the day in four topic areas
  • Review and provide feedback on the priorities set by Dr. Runge, NHTSA Administrator
  • Brainstorm possible actions this profession can take in those topic areas
  • Prioritize the areas that are critical to the profession
  • Prioritize the actions identified by the small group
  • Pose the questions to identify for each priority topic area and priority actions selected. Answer for each priority as time permits.
    • Who will take action from among the participants present?
    • Who must be included in the action, for example who are the stakeholders who need to be part of the activities who may not be at this meeting?
    • Define more explicitly where needed what exactly the action will be?
    • How will the action be taken?
    • When it will happen?

Proposed Session Agenda

  1. Round robin introductions if not already done sufficiently during the day.
  2. As a group list the most critical issues raised for your profession including both topics and ideas for action that you heard.
  3. Discuss reactions to Dr. Runge's priorities as presented in the morning. Consensus is not required but feedback would be useful to NHTSA.
  4. Brainstorm as a group the ideas about action that can be taken by this profession after this meeting either individually, through the represented national organizations, or in the profession at the regional, state or local levels.
  5. Prioritize the issues raised and the actions listed. Dot stickers will be available to do dot voting or colored markers to vote by X's on the top issues to individuals.
  6. Discuss the priorities selected by the group. Total the vote counts. Allow a short time for questions or comments on the voting and what things surfaced as most critical to the profession.
  7. Taking the top vote getters, answer who, what, how, and when for each of the top 3 priorities. If there is not sufficient time, ask the participants to carry this information regarding priorities forward to the multi-disciplinary sessions in the morning.
  8. Ask each participant to make a commitment to take action as a follow-up to this meeting. Document the commitments on a flip chart including the dates by which the action will be taken.
  9. Bring the participants back to the general session room for final wrap-up. Ask for a volunteer to report the results of the group discussions to the full meeting.

*NOTE:  Please be sure to label all flip chart sheets used, number the sheets if they are in sequence, and give the sheets to your recorder from NCJA when you have finished with them.
