Clinical Research Oriented Workshop (CROW) Meeting: June 16, 2011

Present: Abby Crocker, Amanda Kennedy, Rodger Kessler, Jennifer Libous (Student Support Specialist), Ben Littenberg, Connie van Eeghen

1. Welcome to Jennifer, new CTS Student Support Specialist.

2. Rodger: Metrics for Behavioral Health Integration research

a. Development of measures of QI, BHI research project, and data collection for future research/QI projects. These data describe performance of BH clinicians, which will be used to focus on how to evaluate specific hypotheses later on in the development of this project.

b. Rodger shared an outline of the measures drawn from the data collected to date.

c. Accessibility and extractability of data from PRISM still being explored.

d. Measures need to be described with:

i. Name

ii. Numerator

iii. Denominator

iv. Source

v. Rationale

e. The intervention is based on three sets of measures, administered annually to adult patients:

i. PHQ2 prescreen (3+)

1. PHQ9

2. GAD2 (3+)

a. GAD7

ii. Audit 2 (3+)

iii. Problem prescription use (1+)

f. These data elements can be evaluated by the degree to which they measure the effectiveness of this work on the intended outcome (e.g. patient health care status with respect to mental health, substance abuse, and health behavior). Therefore:

i. Match the theoretical model to domains of measures (e.g. the elements of implementation)

ii. Match the domains to specific measurements

iii. Derive the data dictionary/lexicon using these relationships

iv. Define the elements of the data dictionary and its boundaries, based on the study interest

3. Next Workshop Meeting(s): Thursday, 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., at Given Courtyard Level 4

a. June 23: CANCELLED

b. June 30: Abby (no Connie)

c. July 7: Connie: Case Study #2

d. Change to new time for our meetings for July and August: Thursday morning 9:30 – 11:00

e. Ben is on vacation July 16 – 30 and out Aug 4; Abby is on vacation August; Amanda is teaching Tues & Thurs 1 – 4 from July 1 – Aug 26

f. Future agenda to consider:

i. Rodger: Mixed methods article; article on Behavior’s Influence on Medical Conditions (unpublished)

ii. Future: Review of different types of journal articles (lit review, case study, original article, letter to editor…), when each is appropriate, tips on planning/writing (Abby)
