February Open Forum on Biostatistics

Date/Time: Feb 16, 2024, 11:00 AM to Feb 16, 2024, 12:00 PM

Location: Virtual


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 mtremblay@kumc.edu if you have any questions prior to the forum.

The forum will be hosted by two biostatisticians of the BERD function of Frontiers.

Jun 03 11:00 AM • Virtual Trial Innovation Network Webinar: Weeding Out the Bad from the Good: Strategies for Researchers Preventing and Identifying Invalid Online Survey Responses Weeding Out the Bad from the Good: Strategies for Researchers Preventing and Identifying Invalid Online Survey Responses Rachel Schles, PhD  &  Caroline Deheck, MEd With the explosion of AI and machine language learning & modeling in the last few years, online surveys are seeing an increase in invalid, fraudulent, and/or bot responses mixed in with valid human responses. This session provides an overview of identifying and preventing invalid survey responses, including examples from the presenters’ experiences conducting online surveys, and the results from a recent survey of researchers conducting online surveys. The focus of the presentation will be discussing proactive strategies for invalid survey response management, including specific REDCap settings. Jun 10 08:00 AM • Hybrid Genomic Medicine Short Course 2024 Next generation sequencing has had a profound impact on biomedical research. Clinicians and scientists seeking to stay abreast of the field may be challenged by the rapid rate of genomic discovery and technologic advancement. The Genomic Medicine Center, with support of the NIH, offers a four-day CME/CEU program in translational genomics. Topics include: Technical and analytic aspects of DNA and RNA Variant analysis Gene regulation and epigenetics Polygenic Risk Scores Clinical and ethical implications of genomics The course features hands on workshops to teach NGS analysis skills, including analysis of long read HiFi genomes.  A unique aspect of the program is the opportunity for enrollees to have genomic sequencing completed on themselves. Participants can use the resultant data file as they learn variant identification and characterization. This strategy, known as Personalized Genomic Educational Testing (PGET) is optional and provided at no additional cost. This program is supported by the NHGRI Initiative to Maximize Research Education in Genomics: Courses for Skills Development (R25) program. More information. Jun 20 12:00 PM • Virtual NIH Webinar: Fostering Cultures of Inclusive Excellence From the NIH:  Registration is open for our final seminar of the 2023-2024 season, "How Are Institutions Transformed to Foster Cultures of Inclusive Excellence?”, being held on Thursday, June 20, from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. ET. This seminar will address the benefits and barriers faced by institutions in cultivating inclusive cultures. We are pleased to host four distinguished leaders from the NIH National Institute of General Medical Sciences, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Rochester Institute of Technology. The panelists will discuss principles of inclusive practices that can be adopted by academic institutions across the biomedical, social, and behavioral research enterprise.

Epic is an EHR platform that has a strong commitment to innovation through iterative collaboration with our community of stakeholders. This community includes organizations using our software, patient/participant/consumer advisory groups, consortia and workgroups focused on a range of aspects of clinical research and trials, as well as our own teams. In this presentation we’ll share some of the ways our platform has effectively accelerated recruitment and enhanced representation and retention in clinical trials. Both past successes and new opportunities to impact the trial landscape will be discussed. Jul 12 08:00 AM • Lied Auditorium, KU Medical Center Campus, 3901 Rainbow Blvd., Kansas City, Kansas. Introduction to Biostatistics for Clinical & Translational Research - July 12 The KUMC Department of Biostatistics & Data Science, with support from the University of Kansas Cancer Center and Frontiers, offers this free four-day program in biostatistical methods for clinical and translational researchers. Biostatistics plays a critical role in clinical and translational research, influencing everything from study design to results interpretation. Clinicians and scientists should have a basic understanding of biostatistics to support critical appraisal of research, collaboration, communication, and evidence-based practice.  Biostatistical skills can empower researchers to participate more actively in shaping study design and analysis to ensure clinically relevant and feasible research questions, reduce the risk of bias, and improve research efficiency. Topics include: Scientific Rigor and Reproducibility Hierarchy of Study Design and Scientific Evidence Hypothesis Testing and Estimation Common Statistical Methods (Student’s t, Chi-square, ANOVA, Linear regression, Logistic regression, Survival analysis) Jul 17 11:00 AM • Virtual Trial Innovation Network Webinar: Striking the Balance: Integrating Innovative Technology and Personalized Engagement in Clinical Trials Recruitment Striking the Balance: Integrating Innovative Technology and Personalized Engagement in Clinical Trials Recruitment Siobhan Vasquez, BS, CCRP,  Fred Stevenson, RN, MSN, FNP & Tiffany Norris, BS Are you tired of recruiting in an inefficient way? Have you used an exorbitant amount of platforms to do your job? Too many steps to the process? Supercharge your clinical trials recruitment efforts! This webinar will discuss ways to overcome challenges using the UC Davis Clinical Trials Recruitment Program model. Learn about personalized consultations and creating an all-inclusive environment for study teams and PIs. Explore Studypages, a powerful platform to streamline recruitment and participant management. Our goal is that attendees will gain practical strategies, toolkits, and fresh ideas for participant identification and engagement.  Jul 18 03:00 PM • In-person and Virtual Innovations in Quality: Rapid Rise and Promise of Remote Patient Monitoring For more information and to register, visit the link below.  Jul 19 08:00 AM • Lied Auditorium, KU Medical Center Campus, 3901 Rainbow Blvd., Kansas City, Kansas.
