Common Metrics Insights to Inspire Submission Form

In an effort to engage the entire consortium in sharing best practices and lessons learned through the Common Metrics Initiative (CMI), the CLIC CMI team has created the Insights to Inspire blog series. The series highlights innovative and unique strategies that CTSA Program hubs have used to implement the Common Metrics Initiative. The intent is to foster collaboration across the consortium by enabling hubs to gain insights and inspiration from other hubs’ successes to improve their own work.

We encourage hubs to submit their “Insights to Inspire” using the form below. Submissions will be reviewed by the CLIC team for potential development into a blog post to be shared and promoted program-wide through newsletters, social media and beyond. If your submission is selected for development into a blog, CLIC’s communications contact will follow up on submissions for additional details if needed. You will also have the opportunity to review the final blog before it is posted and promoted.

Examples: Systematic/institutional issues with IRB duration, issues regarding effectively training and supporting the translational science workforce, close attention to what’s happening to individuals who complete related programs, obstacles related to producing publications and communications resulting from pilot funding, processes in place to obtain informatics data.
Briefly describe the process or steps taken.
Program Goals: Train and cultivate the translational science workforce, Engage patients and communities in every phase of the translational process, Promote the integration of special and underserved populations in translational research across the human lifespan, Innovate processes to increase the quality and efficiency of translational research, particularly of multisite trials, Advance the use of cutting-edge informatics.
