To elicit participant feedback regarding the 2020 Spring Common Metrics Initiative Meeting.
The 2020 Spring CTSA Program Meeting took place on April 14- 15, 2020, via Zoom, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. At the conclusion of 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, 145 of them had attended the 2020 Spring Common Metrics Initiative Meeting held on April 15, 2020.
A total of 49 of the 145 participants completed the 2020 Program Meeting Logistics evaluation and had indicated that they had attended the Common Metric Initiative Meeting, with a response rate of 33.8%. However, of the 49 respondents, only 27 of them went on to complete the 2020 Spring Common Metrics Initiative evaluation. The meeting included NCATS and CLIC Common Metrics updates, and discussions regarding the consortium impact metrics.
All respondents “agreed” or “strongly agreed” that the meeting was a valuable addition to ongoing teleconferences (N=27). The majority of respondents “agreed” or “strongly agreed” that the topics presented at the meeting were valuable (96.3%, N=26), that the meeting addressed expectations (88.4%, N=23), and that the meeting helped clarify the priorities for the Common Metrics Initiative group going into 2020 (80.8%, N=21). Despite the difficulties presented in shifting the meeting to an entirely virtual format, 96.1% (N=25) 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, “Great meeting! Informative and engaging. Great work.”
