To elicit participant feedback regarding the 2020 Spring Collaboration and Engagement Meeting.
The 2020 Spring CTSA Program Meeting took place on April 14-15, 2020, (via Zoom, per the COVID-19 outbreak). After the meeting, registered attendees were sent an individualized unique survey link to complete the 2020 Spring Program Meeting Logistics evaluation, regardless of whether or not they attended. Additionally, two follow-up reminder emails were sent to individuals who had not responded.
Registered attendees were asked questions about their overall experience attending the Program Meeting and then were asked to indicate which individual meetings they had attended. Respondents were then directed to a survey queue to complete evaluations for each individual meeting they attended. The Program Meeting Logistics evaluation was sent to 555 registered attendees, 177 of them participated the 2020 Spring Collaboration and Engagement Meeting held on April 15, 2020.
A total of 33 of the 177 participants completed the 2020 Program Meeting Logistics evaluation and indicated that they had attended the Collaboration and Engagement Meeting, resulting in a response rate of 18.6%. However, of the 33 respondents, only 17 of them went on to complete the 2020 Spring Collaboration and Engagement evaluation. The meeting included topics on how to engage the community during social distancing, team science and community engagement, and the enterprise committee structure and function.
All respondents “agreed” or “strongly agreed” that the topics presented at the meeting were valuable. The majority of respondents “agreed” or “strongly agreed” that the meeting addressed their expectations (87.5%, N=14), the meeting was a valuable addition to ongoing teleconferences (82.3%, N=14), and that the meeting helped clarify the priorities for the Collaboration and Engagement group going into 2020 (75.0%, N=12). Despite the difficulties presented in shifting the meeting to an entirely virtual format, 94.1% (N=16) of respondents were “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with the meeting overall.
This was supported in the qualitative feedback, where individuals expressed their satisfaction that the meeting was allowed to continue as planned and appreciated the opportunity to how different hubs are responding to COVID-19.
