Presenters: Rhonda Kost, Rockefeller University; Sana Khoury-Shakour, University of California Santa Cruz; Joseph Andrews, Wake Forest University School of Medicine
July 9, 2024: 1:00 - 2:30 ET

Join these three presenters as they share lessons learned about the collaborative framework their Empowering the Participant Voice (EPV) team developed for collecting research participant feedback within and across clinical research institutions.

The EPV project leverages custom REDCap data capture tools and the validated Research Participant Perception Survey (RPPS) to ask research participants about key aspects of participation including the informed consent process.

Presenters will describe how sites developed local use cases, data tools enable analysis of subgroups’ experiences, and how serial surveys can be used to measure impact. The collaborating sites work together as a learning collaborative and aggregate data centrally to benchmark.

At the end of the session, participants will:

  • Appreciate how research experience feedback can identify strengths and opportunities in the research protection program

  • Understand how common standards, validation, and collaboration provide a framework for evaluating group differences and a basis for benchmarking

  • Appreciate how qualitative and quantitative methods provide the power of stores and of numbers. 

  • Appreciate how the RPPS /EPV framework is a participant-centered tool for evidence-based performance improvement in research 

This webinar will be moderated by Nichelle Cobb, AAHRPP's Senior Advisor for Strategic Initiatives.
