To elicit feedback from participants on the 2018 Addressing the Opioid Crisis through Translational Science Evaluation Un-Meeting.
An “Un-Meeting” was hosted by CLIC 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 generating ideas and content for breakout sessions with the goals of encouraging networking and new collaborations to identify innovative ideas for addressing this epidemic. CLIC conducted post-event evaluations of attendees to examine how well these goals were achieved: one at the conclusion of the Un-Meeting (previously reported), and one at the time of the six-month anniversary.
Six-month evaluation questions addressed Un-Meeting Collaborations, Value and Overall Experience.
An email and two reminders were sent to attendees at the six-month anniversary of the meeting with a link to the follow-up evaluation survey. At the conclusion of the online survey process (January 23, 2019) a total of 26 responses were received from the original 97 attendees, for a final response rate of 26.8%.
Two respondents reported that they were currently collaborating on a joint manuscript or funding application with someone they met initially at the Un-Meeting. However, two thirds (n=17) of the respondents agreed or strongly agreed that the Un-Meeting continues to impact their work. Qualitative data include comments regarding new ideas, collaborations, networking and ongoing impact on their work as valuable outcomes of the Un-Meeting.
This report uses both the quantitative data and qualitative data to evaluate common themes and recommendations gleaned from this survey.
