Fall 2018 CTSA Program Administrators Meeting Evaluation


The Fall CTSA Program Meeting, which took place on October 22 and 23, 2018 in Washington, DC, included evaluations for the Program Meeting, the Poster Session, and the Administrators Meeting. The evaluation surveys assessed attendees’ meeting/session satisfaction and experience. This report summarizes both the qualitative and quantitative item results and outlines common themes and specific recommendations from open ended qualitative responses for the Administrators Survey. There were 59 responses from 195 registered attendees, for a response rate of 30.2%. The survey was distributed both onsite (in hard copy form) directly following the end of the meeting, and also sent via email to all who had attended. Questions addressed meeting content, venue, schedule, logistics, and overall meeting value to participants, as well as feedback on how the meeting could be improved. These responses will be incorporated into best practices and potential improvements. In general, responses were positive, and indicated that the meeting met the attendees’ expectations. Overall, they were very pleased with content, closed session, networking opportunities, and learning from their peers. Areas for improvement included the venue and location, wanting more representation from NCATS, and many were in favor of more discussion time/breakout groups to address specific topics and concerns.
