To gather feedback regarding the 2021 CTSA Spring Program Meetings
The 2021 Spring CTSA Program Group Meetings, which took place on April 14th and 15th, 2021 via GTR, included evaluations for the CTSA Program Hub Communicators, Common Metrics Initiative, Collaboration and Engagement, Informatics, and Integration Across the Lifespan meetings, as well as the Joint Meeting of KL2 Directors, TL1 Directors and Workforce Development Enterprise Committee.
A total of 600 individuals attended at least one of the Program Group Meetings. Participants who registered before attending the meeting were emailed an individualized unique survey link to complete the 2021 Spring Program Group Meetings Logistics evaluation. Two follow-up reminder emails were sent to individuals who had not responded. Of the 600 registered attendees, a total of 199 responses were received, for a response rate of 33.2%. Registered attendees were asked questions about their overall experience attending the Program Group Meetings and 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.
Questions addressed meeting content, expectations, future steps, and satisfaction with the virtual platform. These responses will be used in planning subsequent meetings. The 2021 evaluation differs from previous versions because of the change in overall virtual format. This updated version includes new or expanded questions to assess the experience of attending the Spring Meeting via the GTR platform. A complete set of qualitative responses for the Spring CTSA Program Group Meetings is included in the appendix.
In general, both quantitative and qualitative responses were very positive, and indicated that the meeting met or exceeded the attendees’ expectations. Overall, attendees were pleased with presentations and content, and enjoyed the breakout sessions. While comments were gathered, it is important to note that these came from a very small fraction of attendees. Areas for improvement, taken from these comments, included the meeting time lengths, more discussion on a specific topic, ease of virtual platform use for users, and a more seamless registration process.
