Clinical Research Oriented Workshop (CROW) Meeting: December 5, 2013

Present:  Kairn Kelley, Rodger Kessler, Ben Littenberg, Connie van Eeghen, Jon Van Luling

Start Up: Nelson Mandela… moved the dot, and our society, measurably and immeasurably.

1.                  Discussion: Rodger is seeking a set of measures that can be used to reliably rate the degree of behavioral health integration and a method to get an expert panel to assess a set of clinical vignettes that will serve as an approximate gold standard of different classes of integration.
a.       The first of vignettes have been developed; these need review and refinement.  There are five vignettes at this time; the goal is for them to be consistently and unambiguously categorized according to the measures.  
b.      Anchors were set up at four points, but not at quartiles: 0%, 1-49%, 50-99%, 100%.  Discussion was vigorous about where these points should be placed/what range of responses they should include, and how they should be described.
c.       Statements (also called stems) were selected at random and reviewed from multiple perspectives.  Questions were raised about how the statements reflect key aspects of the paradigm being tested.  These questions will be reviewed with the author of the paradigm case.

2.                  Next Workshop Meeting(s): Thursdays, 11:45 a.m. – 1:15 p.m., at Given Courtyard South Level 4.   
a.       December 10: Connie’s analytic plan for medical student evaluation data

b.      Future agenda to consider:
                                                  i.      Peter Callas or other faculty on multi-level modeling
                                                ii.      Charlie MacLean: demonstration of Tableau; or Rodger’s examples of Prezi
                                              iii.      Journal article: Gomes, 2013, Opioid Dose and MVA in Canada (Charlie)
                                              iv.      Ben: Tukey chapter reading assignments, or other book of general interest

Recorder: Connie van Eeghen
