- June 11, 2021Dr. Elizabeth Ofili, a principal investigator at the Georgia CTSA, gives a 4x4 presentation at the Un-Meeting. Researchers across the country gathered virtually last month to discuss outreach to community hospitals for recruitment and enrollment into clinical trials at the CLIC-hosted Un-Meeting “Exploring the Inclusion of Community Hospitals in Clinical Research.” The topic, chosen by the
Telehealth is an emerging field. Prior to the pandemic, telehealth was shown in several chronic conditions to improve access, reduce hospitalization rates, and have lower costs to the patient than traditional in person visits. These interventions are adaptable and have the potential to impact healthcare in communities which are medically underserved and under-resourced. Telehealth has also been shown to reduce health disparities among African Americans, improve screenings of chronic conditions and improve access to mental health care in rural areas. During the COVID-19 pandemic there has been
May 27, 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM Eastern Time. This NCATS “Rapid-Response” Un-Meeting will encourage discussions to identify activities that can be initiated and sustained in the interpandemic period to include when a significant public health emergency arises in the future, these community based environments can seamlessly participate in joint projects to address the threat. Other potential topics include identifying opportunities to build models of outreach to better include community hospitals for recruitment and enrollment into academic clinical trials, identifying ways to increase participant

Telehealth plays an important role in the Clinical Implementation and Public Health stages of the Translational Science Spectrum. Understanding the barriers and limitations of telehealth will inform development of new technology and models that expand access and improve the quality of care. The impact of this un-meeting is to use the results to make immediate changes to how telehealth visits are conducted for clinical care, to develop new strategies to removing barriers to telehealth in underserved populations and to advance multidisciplinary initiatives regarding research with telehealth.

Introduction: Addressing rural health disparities has unique challenges which require cross sector collaborations to address social determinants of health and help those in need get connected to care continuum.
Finding solutions to clinical and translational roadblocks is a considerable part of our job. In collaboration with the Center for Leading Innovation and Collaboration (CLIC), we have organized our two Un-Meetings for this year. These Un-meetings will focus on two broad topics where we need some insightful mind power to address current and future directions. On March 2nd 2020 at Northwestern

This NCATS “rapid-response” Un-Meeting will encourage discussions around the changes encountered in the area of clinical and translational research resulting from the COVID pandemic. Other potential topics include Identifying clinical research trial design opportunities as a unified network in the post-COVID clinical era? What does training look like? What do remote trials look like? What is the
- Probably the biggest takeaway from the recent annual program meeting is that there simply isn’t enough time. However, we believe our goals for great presentations, lively discussions, and new collaborations were met. You, the CTSA community, and our many partners from NIH, FDA, PCORI, IDeA CTRs, and USDA delivered. I’ll use the term “wicked problems” rather than the largely discussed “big hairy
