To inquire about actions pursued as a result of the Un-Meeting, other benefits and outcomes that resulted from attending the Un-Meeting, and whether attending the Un-Meeting continued to impact the work of the attendees.
On Friday, March 26, 2021 an Un-Meeting addressing the topic of Tackling the Digital Divide to Improve Telehealth was held online via Whova, a virtual conference platform. A survey was sent to all meeting attendees following the Un-Meeting. CLIC conducted post-event evaluations to explore whether meeting goals were achieved, both immediately following the Un-Meeting (as previously reported) and six months after the Un-Meeting concluded.
This report details the evaluation survey disseminated on October 22, 2021, six months after the Un-Meeting was held. Questions in the six-month evaluation inquired about actions pursued as a result of the Un-Meeting, other benefits and outcomes that resulted from attending the Un-Meeting, and whether attending the Un-Meeting continued to impact the work of the attendees.
An initial email and two reminder emails, all including the link to the follow-up evaluation survey, were sent to attendees after the six-month anniversary of the Un-Meeting. Overall, a total of 9 responses were received from 132 initial attendees, for an 6.8% response rate for the six-month follow-up. The respondents were split on whether the Un-Meeting continued to impact their work.
The survey contained several open-ended questions, and attendees were asked to discuss any valuable outcomes or benefits that had directly resulted from the Un-Meeting. Respondents indicated that because of the Un-Meeting, they have taken steps to pursue opportunities including developing pilot programs, collaborating on grant proposals, and implementing new research ideas. Some respondents mentioned that they wished there was more follow-up after the meeting.
