Clinical Research Oriented Workshop (CROW) Meeting: Oct 2, 2014

Present:  Patricia Berry, Marianne Burke, Juvena Hitt, Kairn Kelley, Rodger Kessler, Ben Littenberg, Connie van Eeghen, Jon van Luling

Start Up:  Rodger has been asked by AHRQ to deliver a presentation similar to the Letter of Intent that he, Ben and Connie have just submitted, with the likelihood that it will be avoided by colleagues who don’t want to change. He anticipates feeling frustrated.

1.                  Discussion: Rodger & Connie’s pre-training survey for students and residents prior to SBIRT training
a.       Rodger is the PI, and Connie is the evaluator, of a SAMHSA funded training grant to teach residents and students (counseling, social work, and nursing) on helping patients with problem drug/alcohol use (pre-abuse)  This pre-training survey attempts to identify where the students in five domains.  The questions for the workshop are: Are the questions appropriately aligned with domains?  Have the questions sufficiently saturated the domains?  Domains/feedback:
                                                  i.      Knowledge relative to medical conditions:
1.      Re-title the domain to include the key questions: Knowledge r/t medical consequences of problem use
2.      Turn A3 and A3 into more subtle questions that model something that the learners should do
                                                ii.      Knowledge of substance us and misuse behaviors:
1.      Confirm that the questions are up to date with NIAAA, especially B2
                                              iii.      Knowledge and use of SBIRT:
1.      Re-word the 5th entry in C1, so that it is more accurately the exception.
2.      Consider combining C2 and C3 as they are close (although distinctly different in the training program)
3.      Specify “residents” as these will be the only respondents to these questions
                                              iv.      Attitudes about substance abuse patients:
1.      Check wording on D2
2.      Reformat
                                                v.      Attitudes about student ability to help patients:
1.      Check wording on E8/E12
b.      Many thanks to all who participated!

2.                  Next Workshop Meeting(s): Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m., at Given Courtyard South Level 4.   Remember: the first 15 minutes are for checking in with each other.
