"I have a grant due next week. Would you please send me all your data on chronic disease?" Have you ever received a request like this? Such an open ended inquiry is difficult to deal with and, after receiving similar questions from colleagues on a regular basis, leads to a lot of frustration. What are some methods for turning collaborations with non-statisticians into productive experiences, rather than having them become data "stick-ups?" Education, communication, and relationship development are key. Additionally, are there other factors that need to be addressed to support successful collaborations? These challenges will be explored from a public health biostatistical perspective.
