Can a person play more than one role on a team—for example, as both a stakeholder and a researcher?

It may be possible for a team member to play more than one role. For example, many researchers are practicing healthcare providers, such as physicians and nurses, and so they may also play a role as stakeholders. However, it is important to include patient representatives who serve only in that role.  You must explicitly identify each person’s role in your proposal. If team members play more than one role, clearly specify which role they will play during each stage of the research.
