Un-Meeting: Exploring the Inclusion of Community Hospitals in Clinical Research
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 diversity, and inclusion of community hospitals or community groups in academic research activities.
An Un-Meeting is an event without the rules and structure of a traditional conference. Attendees create and drive the agenda and discussions, based on a common theme. This format provides a unique approach for attendees to discuss their experiences and identify areas of potential research, innovation and collaboration. The Un-Meeting is an interactive way to cultivate ideas that the CTSA Program can use to make productive connections across academic centers and between academia, industry, government, and the community with the goal of developing multidisciplinary and collaborative partnerships.
