Clinical Research Oriented Workshop (CROW) Meeting: April 28, 2016

Present:  Marianne Burke, Nancy Gell, Juvena Hitt, Kairn Kelley, Ben Littenberg, Charlie MacLean, Gail Rose, Adam Sprouse-Blum, Connie van Eeghen

Start Up: Health care access for the deaf and blind; why does UVM not have a PA program?

1.                  Discussion: Marianne Burke’s Does Computerized Clinical Evidence Improve Patient Skin Problem Outcomes?
a.       Marianne just completed a poster presentation of her research methods.
b.      This presentation is a follow on, in which the final results are not yet known. 10 – 15 minute presentation period with as many follow up questions.
c.       The “hook” needs to focus on the “Evidence,” not the clinical condition
d.      Objectives:
                                                  i.      Engage interest in the study process and outcomes
                                                ii.      How to do technology assessment IT evidenced based systems
                                              iii.      How to do patient-oriented outcomes assessment of technology resources
e.       Problem:
                                                  i.      We need good evidence
                                                ii.      It’s hard to find
                                              iii.      The system is expensive
                                              iv.      We don’t know if it’s worth it
                                                v.      How to assess in the past:
1.      Ask doctors
2.      Ask users
                                              vi.      We know what value in health care is; how does this kind of technology affect it
                                            vii.      We came up with a method
                                          viii.      So far, we’ve figured out this much
f.       Not the details of the methods; this is the overview, telling a story
                                                  i.      Overview diagram
                                                ii.      Outcomes
g.      How does this work potentially affect how people see the purpose, value, and design of the medical library?
                                                  i.      UVM may make it the basis of The Teaching Academy
                                                ii.      May include all non-lab medical school functions
h.      Presentation looks good!
