The purpose of this survey is to solicit information on the creative innovations and adaptations made by the hubs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On October 5, 2020, on behalf of the CTSA sub-Steering Committee, CLIC distributed a Journal of Clinical and Translational Science (JCTS) Master Survey via REDCap to hub PIs and administrators. The purpose of the survey was to gather information regarding how hubs responded to the COVID-19 pandemic across eight subject matters N3C and Informatics, Biorepositories, Virtual Visits, IRB, Protecting Research Personnel, Prioritizing COVID-19 Studies, COVID-19 Adaptations to Pharmacy Procedures, Prioritizing non-COVID-19 Studies. Hub PIs were asked to complete the survey, one survey per hub, soliciting responses from others at their hub to gather expert-specific data. Key personnel were asked to complete the Word Document version of the survey, which was provided, and return it to the hub PI to complete the official online REDCap survey. Of the 65 hubs that received the survey, 60 responses were gathered for a response rate of 92.3%.
The writing groups analyzed the data and developed 14 manuscripts that are currently under review scientific peer review. Manuscripts will be featured in the JCTS COVID-19 Special Issue, to create a “playbook” to be able to respond quickly to similar experiences in the future.
