CLIC Distributed Surveys
The CTSA Program supports high quality translational and clinical research locally, regionally and nationally. Surveys are one way to efficiently conduct research and collect pertinent information. The purpose of a survey may be to uncover answers, evoke discussion, discover resources, guide decision-making and/or to compare results.
In order to maintain the current level of high quality research supported by the program, there’s a need for clear and controlled processes for survey deployment and archival. For CTSA Program members or hubs interested in creating and/or distributing a survey, please reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
For further guidance on creating and distributing surveys, please review the CTSA Program Process Guidance for Surveys document.
These surveys fall under the NCATS Policy for Surveys and the NCATS PO (Erica Rosemond) has approved that these surveys answer "Yes" to the following two questions. Thus the program is conducting NIH research and will be considered exempt from the Paperwork Reduction Act approval requirements as outlined by the 21st Century Cures Act:
- 1) Will the program analyze the project outcomes in a systematic way?
- 2) Will the program publicize the results of your systematic analyses?
A list of all current and past instruments created and distributed by CLIC as of April 1, 2019 can be found here.
The Common Metrics Initiative (CMI) Multi-Year Report was released by the Center for Leading Innovation and Collaboration (CLIC) to hub-specific web pages on the CLIC website on February 28, 2019. Hubs were required to use a federated log in to access their individual reports. Of note, the previous hub report was sent via email.
The purpose of the Great CTSA Team Science Contest was to find the best ideas in all of CTSA-land for encouraging better team science. The CTSAs have been operating for as long as ten years and many hubs have been trying out and testing novel ideas for how to encourage better collaboration and teamwork in biomedical research. We want to find...

The goal of this survey project, initiated by the Opioid Working Group of the CTSA Program Steering Committee, was to generate a landscape analysis of current opioid-related programs (representing either best practices or innovative programs) that are underway across the CTSA Program hubs and their institutions, individually and with diverse...
CLIC convened an “Un-Meeting” on Saturday June 2, 2018 at the University of Rochester Medical Center as part of the NCATS priority of addressing the opioid crisis through translational research. The Un-Meeting provided 4x4 (4 slides, 4 minutes) presentations to stimulate discussion on key topics in opioid research and engaged attendees in...
The Center for Leading Innovation and Collaboration (CLIC) distributed the first Common Metrics Hub Reports on August 24, 2018 based on the 2016 data for the 3 metrics: Median IRB Review Duration, Pilot Funding Publications, and Careers in Clinical and Translational Research. Reports to the hubs...
In an effort to guide CLIC communications strategies, CLIC created and distributed an online survey to elicit feedback from CTSA Program hub communicators about what they’re doing to promote their hub’s news and messages, and what challenges they’re facing. Questions addressed what tactics hub communicators currently employ and what they find...
The purpose of this survey was to gather contact information from CTSA Program initiative representatives from the hubs who are currently being funded or have been funded and are still participating in the CTSA Program Domain Task Forces (DTF) and/or Common Metrics Initiative (CMI). This information will facilitate the ability of the...
