On Wednesday, April 13, 2022 an Un-Meeting addressing the topic of Enabling and Promoting Inter-Institutional Clinical and Genomic Research was held online via Zoom, a virtual meeting platform. The Un-Meeting aimed to cover important topics in research, encourage new collaborations, and generate new ideas. An evaluation survey was sent to all meeting participants following the Un-Meeting to examine how well the meeting goals were achieved. This report of the evaluation addresses Future Collaboration, New Topics, and Overall Satisfaction.
A public survey link was housed on the platform for attendees to complete. After the Un-Meeting, all attendees received an initial email invitation with a link to the survey and two subsequent weekly reminders. At the conclusion of the online data collection, 20 responses were received from the total of 84 attendees, for a final response rate of 23.8%. The entirety of respondents “Agreed” or “Strongly Agreed” that the Un-Meeting addressed their expectations (n=19, 100.0%). Again, all respondents also “Agreed” or “Strongly Agreed” that the topics covered by the Un-Meeting were valuable (n=19, 100.0%).
Respondents (n=20) answered a question about actions they had pursued or started to pursue as a result of attending the Un-Meeting. The top responses were “explore opportunity for my institution to join the GIC” (n=8, 40.0%), as well as “develop a pilot project program” (n=7, 35.0%) and “organize a follow-up meeting with the GIC team” (n=7, 35.0%).
The survey included open-ended questions, for which attendees were asked to describe anything new they learned or the most helpful aspect of attending the Un-Meeting. The text responses are displayed below. Overall, several respondents mentioned knowledge of the GIC and their opportunities and capabilities for new things learned. Both the overall presentations and breakout sessions cited as helpful aspects of the Un-Meeting.
