To elicit participant feedback on the 2020 Spring Joint Meeting of KL2 Directors, TL1 Directors and Workforce Development.
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, 245 of them attend the Joint Meeting of KL2 Directors, TL1 Directors, and Workforce Development held on April 15, 2020.
A total of 75 of the 245 participants completed the 2020 Program Meeting Logistics evaluation and indicated that they had attended the Joint Meeting of KL2 Directors, TL1 Directors, and Workforce Development, resulting in a response rate of 30.6%. However, of the 75 respondents, only 39 of them went on to complete the 2020 Spring Joint Meeting. The meeting focused on the preliminary results obtained from a survey that was distributed on April 03, 2020, to assess how Program Leaders, TL1 Directors, and Trainees as well as KL2 Directors, and Scholars are addressing adapting to emerging COVID-19 pandemic barriers.
The majority of respondents believed that the topic “Impact of COVID-19 on Training and Career Development” was congruent with their current priorities (N=36, 94.7%). Furthermore, the majority of respondents indicated that they would be interested in a virtual meeting that focuses on “Re-entry Strategies” (N=36, 92.3%), and would be willing to participate in a future survey (N=33, 84.6%).
This was further supported in the qualitative feedback, where individuals appreciated the opportunity to discuss the impact of COVID- and suggested future topics focus on re-entry, “This was very helpful. I hope for the next meeting we have more clarity from NIH about re-entry issues, carryover, and extensions.”
