Clinical Research Oriented Workshop (CROW) Meeting: March 17, 2016

Present:  Marianne Burke, Kairn Kelley, Ben Littenberg, Charlie MacLean, Katie Peper, Adam Sprouse-Blum, Connie van Eeghen

Start Up: 10th Annual UVM Student Research Conference on April 28, 2016

1.                  Discussion: Marianne and Katie’s proposed presentation to the Teaching Academy  
a.       Cure rate is 39/116 (all better)
                                                  i.      Additional: 3/116
b.      Mid-study analysis: can the data be analyzed mid-study without introducing bias?
                                                  i.      Risk of reporting false positives because later periods show reduced effect
                                                ii.      May create an erroneous conclusion that is hard to correct later
                                              iii.      Low risk – good to proceed
c.       Key findings to highlight
                                                  i.      All practitioners use evidence-based resources at least once/ month
                                                ii.      Residents have a different pattern re: choice of resources
                                              iii.      Use charts to reinforce key findings
d.      Conclusions: educational, clinical, or policy implications for findings
                                                  i.      Clinical faculty do use EBP tools; there is a demand of these tools
1.      Therefore, tools must be maintained
                                                ii.      Faculty have different use than residents; one approach is probably sub-optimal – why different?  Which is better?
                                              iii.      Are there implications about the use of these resources for skin conditions?
e.       Katie to present a different presentation at the Student Research Conference (above)

2.                  Next Workshop Meeting(s): Thursdays, 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m., at Given Courtyard South Level 4.
