UR CTSI TriNetX Training Workshops

The UR CTSI is now offering several training workshops for TriNetX, a cohort discovery tool that will replace the current i2b2 tool. With TriNetX investigators can search a limited set of electronic medical record data to determine the feasibility of their clinical trials. The tool is completely self-serviceable and secure.
The 90-minute TriNetX Advanced Querying Workshops will explore advanced querying concepts such as rare diseases, managing and understanding coding systems to find terms, and using the event and temporal features. Participants should have a basic understanding of the TriNetX interface and be able to build simple queries. Register now for the following dates:
Wednesday, August 21, 2:00 – 4:00 pm, SRB 3434A/3434B
Tuesday, September 17, 2:00 – 4:00 pm, SRB 1404
Wednesday, October 16, 2:00 – 4:00 pm, SRB 1416

Ray Dorsey, M.D., Plans to Expand Virtual Visits for Parkinson’s Patients

Ray Dorsey, M.D., David M. Levy Professor of Neurology at URMC, discusses results of a recent research project funded by a Dissemination and Implementation award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). Dorsey and his team found that video house calls were a convenient way for people with Parkinson’s disease to receive care from specialists. These results are being used to expand virtual visits for patients with Parkinson’s disease in New York.

Recruitment and Retention Class Registration Opens August 1

Want to become an expert in the recruitment and retention of clinical research participants? Public Health Sciences is offering a three-credit course this fall titled, “PM 419 Recruitment and Retention of Human Subjects in Clinical Research.”  This course focuses on models, strategies and tactics to effectively recruit and retain human subjects in general and specific subgroups (e.g. women, minorities, vulnerable populations). Participants will critique and design methods through the lens of both an insider and an outsider. Non-matriculated students can register starting Thursday, August 1.

URMC Summer Scholars Program Research Poster Session

The UR School of Medicine and Dentistry’s Summer Scholars Program and the Strong Children’s Research Center Summer Program will host a combined Summer Research Poster Session. The session will highlight the research conducted by undergraduate and medical students during their summer biomedical research programs at URMC. The session is open to the public and all are welcome to attend. Add to Outlook.
Date: Thursday, August 1
Time: 12:00 – 1:30 pm
Location: Sarah Flaum Atrium

Roc Health Data: Surviving the Heat With Asthma

Summer can be a difficult time of year for those who suffer from asthma. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) explains that humid air feels harder to breathe and sudden changes in air temperature can trigger an asthma attack. Visit RocHealthData for tips on how to beat the heat and view data on our region’s prevalence of asthma and high heat index days.

URMC School of Nursing DNP Summit

Join advanced nursing practice leaders, policymakers, and scholars as they showcase the contributions of nurses prepared through Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs and explore an evolving vision for DNPs to positively affect clinical practice, health policy, and care delivery across the health care continuum. The DNP Summit will feature keynote speaker Ruth Kleinpell, Ph.D., independence foundation professor of Nursing Education and assistant dean for Clinical Scholarship at the Vanderbilt School of Nursing. There will also be a poster session. Submit an abstract by Friday, August 2, 11:59 pm. Contact hours will be available. Register and learn more.

Date: Friday, November 1
Time: 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Location: Helen Wood Hall Auditorium, 1W-304

TIN Webinar: Mechanisms of Health Effects of Exercise in Children

Presented by: Dan Michael Cooper, M.D.
This webinar will highlight the work being done on two Trial Innovation Network (TIN) studies (Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity and Revamping Exercise Assessments in Child Health) and the investigators’ experiences utilizing community engagement studios, CTSA Program domain task forces, central IRBs and other TIN services to support these trials.
Date: Monday, August 5
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm

Call for Papers: Dissemination and Implementation

A special themed issue of the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science will focus on the Dissemination and Implementation Sciences in Translational Science. The goal is to highlight concepts that form the foundation for and assess the current state of aspects of dissemination and implementation research conducted with the intention of moving research into practice.
Submissions should be made online via the journal’s ScholarOne submission siteSubmit a manuscript by Thursday, October 31. View the full call for papers.
