Oct 02 11:00 AM  Virtual A Community Engaged Approach to Recruitment and Retention of Underrepresented Populations in Research TIN webinar Nicole Wolfe, PhD,  Mayra Rubio-Diaz  &  Lindsay Slay, MSW This webinar will highlight effective strategies for investigators and others who work in and with diverse communities to develop greater capacity and success in engaging, recruiting, and retaining research participants from underrepresented populations. Oct 17 12:00 PM  Virtual Implementation Science Quarterly Meet-up Contact Maggie Padek Kalman for additional information and the meeting invite.  Oct 18 11:00 AM  Virtual Expanding patient access to research opportunities through novel approaches: An institution’s implementation of an opt-out, cold-contact recruitment process and methods to improve the feasibility and rigor of remote trials TIN webinar Tara Pittman, MA, CCRP  &  Jennifer Dahne, Ph.D This webinar will describe the Medical University of South Carolina’s adoption and implementation of an opt-out, cold-contact patient recruitment policy (referred to as Patient Outreach Recruitment) allowing researchers to reach out to potentially eligible study subjects identified via the electronic health record. The reasoning that lead to the use of this approach will be explained and the development of the implementation workflow and patient communication surrounding the process will be outlined. In addition to describing the Patient Outreach Recruitment process, this webinar will also showcase REDCap tools, developed at MUSC, to improve both the feasibility and rigor of remote trials. These tools focus on increasing representativeness of participant samples enrolled in clinical trials as well as decreasing the incidence of fraud. Oct 19 05:30 PM  Midland Theatre 1228 Main St, Kansas City MO BioNexus Annual Event Save the Date  MEET OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER: MARCUS WHITNEY Founding Partner of Jumpstart Health Investors, America's most active early-stage healthcare venture capital firm Leader of Jumpstart Nova, the first healthcare venture fund in America investing exclusively in Black founded and led startups #1 best-selling author of "Create and Orchestrate," about claiming your creative power through entrepreneurship Oct 20 01:30 PM  Virtual October Open Forum on Biostatistics The Open Forum on Biostatistics is a service provided by the Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) function of Frontiers, our institutions Clinical and Translational Science Institute.  The purpose of this forum is to provide investigators with an opportunity to ask questions related to BERD topic areas.  These may relate to research and training, and the forum provides a new avenue to connect with colleagues in support of the research and education missions of the BERD function of Frontiers.  This meeting is open to staff and faculty from all Frontiers Partner Institutions. You can email BERD navigator Megan Tremblay if you have any questions prior to the forum. The forum will be hosted by two biostatisticians of the BERD function of Frontiers. Join here. Oct 26 12:00 PM  Zoom Research and Discovery Grand Rounds: Leading High-Impact Team Science: Opportunities and Challenges in Clinical and Translational Research By definition, Clinical and Translational Research is team science. Moving discoveries from the bench to the clinic to the community requires collaboration across disciplinary, career stage, and institutional boundaries. While team science has many benefits, including the ability to address more complex questions, there are also challenges in coordinating people and tasks across those boundaries. Join Betsy Rolland, Ph.D., MLIS, MPH as she presents team science best practices that CTR leaders can implement to mitigate some of the challenges and discusses the benefits of Collaboration Planning, an intervention developed at the University of Wisconsin’s CTSA and now being implemented in Frontiers. With a minimal investment of time and effort, Collaboration Planning can help teams design a more deliberate approach to their collaborative work that results in lower levels of conflict and greater scientific progress.
