Peter Carek, MD, MS & Eric Rosenberg, MD, MSPH, FACP
October 6, 2015 from 5 to 6:30pm
UF HME Building, Room 128

Scholarship in the clinical area is an important activity in improving both patient care and medical education. Furthermore, scholarship helps shape medical disciplines and subsequent presentation and publication productivity is important for personal career develop. During this session, we will review the various forms of scholarship (using Boyer’s Scholarship Model) and provide examples from the careers of the presenters to assist individual audience members as they turn their clinical interests and observations into scholarship.

Objectives:
— Be able to present the importance of scholarly activity as a routine aspect of academic patient care and medical education.
— Describe Boyer’s Scholarship Model.
— Provide examples of individual clinical and educational interests and observations that have led to scholarly work.
— Have audience members provide areas of their interest that may lead to scholarship.
— Identify potential barriers to publication of scholarly work and potential strategies to overcome them.

CTSI Workshop

Finding the Way – Developing a Human Subjects Clinical Research Navigation Map
Thursday, Oct. 1, noon to 5 p.m., CTRB 3161/3162
The UF CTSI Regulatory Affairs and Research Coordinator Consortium, in collaboration with the Division of Sponsored Programs, Institutional Review Board and Research Administration and Compliance Office, is developing a “map” to use as a tool to guide research teams through a study’s life cycle.
We are holding a workshop to review and invite feedback on the current iteration of the map and related process flow charts. Input will be used to guide subsequent iterations for an interactive online Clinical Research Navigation Map.The overarching theme of the program reflects three simple messages:
·         Know where you want to go
·         Know who to ask for directions
·         Take all the necessary steps along the wayAs we review the map with attendees, a panel of experts will reflect on the various stops along the way. We hope for participation from an engaged representation of the clinical trials workforce at UF.
There is no cost to attend, and lunch and refreshments will be provided. As seating is limited, RSVP to reserve your spot today: http://bit.ly/1hYBLjgContact the CTSI

CTSI Safety & Simulation Seminar

The Best of Intentions:  Patients intentions to request health care workers cleanse hands before examinations
Debbie Treise, PhD
Thursday, September 17, Communicore C1-4, Noon to 1pm

The CDC recommends that patients ask health-care providers to cleanse their hands in the patients’ presence for each examination.  This study investigates the utility of the recommendation in light of potential challenges stemming from norms in the provider-patient relationship.  In addition, we investigate the role of individual differences that may make such a discussion especially difficult (e.g., interaction anxiety) or seem inappropriate (e.g., authoritarianism).  We also seek to identify how well-known predictors of behavioral intentions (i.e., attitudes, subjective norms, efficacy, outcome benefits and costs) affect intentions to perform this specific behavior. A total of 250 hospitalized, post-surgical patients were asked about their own likelihood of following the CDC’s recommendation.  They were also asked to view and respond to video depictions of a doctor and patient interaction that varied the presence of a patient request and a doctor’s cleansing.  Results of the study suggest the CDC recommendation, without additional considerations, is unlikely to reduce dangers posed by healthcare worker transmission of infectious disease.

This is the fifth lecture in the Safety & Simulation Seminars offered by the UF Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI) Simulation Core.  Lunch will be provided starting at 11:45 am to Gainesville attendees with prior RSVP by 9/16 noon to Faith Hawks fhawks@anest.ufl.edu 352 273 6782 (please advise her of dietary restrictions) to allow for 15 minutes of networking time.  The lecture with Q&A will be from noon to 1 pm.  UF Health Jacksonville attendees will be able to attend and ask questions via video conference link to the Deal Boardroom on the 4th Floor of the Learning Resource Center (LRC).
