Clinical Research Oriented Workshop (CROW) Meeting: Dec 11, 2014

Present:  Marianne Burke, Nancy Gell, Kairn Kelley, Connie van Eeghen

Start Up:  Watch out for undelivered emails (Nancy’s current problem) and new levels of unwanted spam (Connie’s)

1.                  Discussion Karen’s Results section of her Dichotic Listening Test-Retest Draft   
a.       To be submitted to a journal for speech/language, one of 3 requirements for Kairn’s degree
b.      This draft focused on the differences among 3 tests; the next will look at the clinical implications of the change in scores – how the difference might affect diagnosis.
c.       Results reporting includes group and individual test reliability, which may begin to get into the clinical implications – save this discussion for committee.
d.      No subgroup analysis is expected; the group discussed the value of how detailed the characteristics reported in Table 1 might be.  If there are unusual characteristics that might affect the results (such as children receiving special services), consider conducting a sensitivity test to see how much those subjects affected the results.
e.       Group level results: the group discussed how to include raw and percentage scores in a single table, and how the same information is presented in the narrative.

2.                  Discussion: Next semester’s meeting plan for CROW
a.       Results from Kairn’s Doodle Poll: change to Fridays, starting January 9, from 10:45 – 11:45.

3.                  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.
a.       Dec 18: Marianne: progress on IRB proposal and recruitment methods (no Ben)
b.      Jan 9: Nancy– topic TBD
c.       Jan 16: Kairn – topic TBD

Recorder: Connie van Eeghen
