Clinical Research Oriented Workshop (CROW) Meeting: Feb 3, 2011

Present: Abby Crocker, Kairn Kelly, Rodger Kessler, Ben Littenberg, Connie van Eeghen

1. Check In:

a. Library books are due! Ben is interesting in getting long-loaned books back; Connie, Abby, Rodger, and Kairn all have outstanding loans.

b. Plan: book club on Tuftee’s first book: display of quantitative data. Ben will ask Debi to order additional copies.

2. Connie – Case Study #1 Analysis

a. Overview and analytic plan: discussion of how to describe mixed methods studies and the relationships they are measuring. Connie’s study is labeled a concurrent nested mixed methods study based on the strength of the measurement tools, not the dependence of one kind of design on another.

b. Outcome measures: measurement approach and tools changed pre/post the project. Connie has some new homework to do on how the pre-project patient charts were sampled and how to measure the denominator for post-project results.

c. Presentation of analysis: small “n” studies work with in dot plots, rather than bar charts. We began to interpret some of the results presented but ran out of time.

d. Great input – thanks everybody!
