To gather feedback on how to ensure that the Workforce Development DTF is able to focus attention on the areas of greatest importance to members over the coming year.
In response to the face-to-face meeting feedback to be more inclusive, responses were solicited via this brief 5 item survey in order to ensure that the Workforce Development DTF is able to focus attention on the areas of greatest importance to members over the coming year. It is often difficult for everyone to be heard fully during a 1 hour web conference with >60 participants, so this REDCap survey will allow for a focus on the agenda ahead of time.
Survey invitations were sent on August 28, with 2 reminders (to non-responders). Participants were asked to complete the survey no later than Noon on Tuesday, September 4.
Questions 1 and 2 asked participants to rank the five training and career development domains most important or of greatest concern/interest. The domains listed in questions 1-4 are identical, but #1 refers to investigators (e.g., KL2 scholars, TL1 scholars, junior faculty investigators) while #2 refers to translational research team members other than investigators (e.g., clinical research coordinators, research nurses, data managers, research assistants).
Questions 3 and 4 asked for suggestions for presentations at DTF meetings of programs that are ready to share across hubs (question #3) or would benefit by formation of a new working group (question #4).
Question 5 asked for suggestions regarding important, practical measures/metrics of workforce development outcomes, beyond those collected in the common metrics, that would be useful.
