Drop-In Sessions
Study Recruitment Drop-in Session

Need assistance with recruiting participants for your research study?

Tufts CTSI’s Recruitment & Retention Support Unit (RRSU) hosts weekly drop-in sessions for investigators and research team members to ask questions about recruitment planning, integrating underrepresented populations into research, advertising for research studies, and other recruitment needs in pre- and post-award phases of research.

Study Recruitment Drop-in Sessions take place every Monday from 11:00AM – noon at 35 Kneeland Street, 8th Floor Lounge, Boston.

Drop-In Sessions
Research Help Drop-in Session

Drop-in Sessions, sponsored by the Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) Center, are intended to help Tufts Medical Center/Tufts University researchers resolve questions about study design, statistics, and statistical software including Statistical Analysis System (SAS).

BERD Center Drop-In Sessions are free and staffed by Tufts CTSI epidemiologists and biostatisticians. They can help you tackle clinical research questions, such as:

  • Have I chosen the most efficient and valid study design to investigate this hypothesis?
  • How many people will I need in my study?
  • Which statistical test is appropriate?
  • Could loss of participants be a problem in my study, and how should I handle their missing data?
  • How can I best respond to an IRB stipulation/inquiry?

Research Process Improvement assistance is also available at Drop-in Sessions.

Drop-in Sessions take place every Wednesday from 8:00 – 9:00am at 35 Kneeland Street, 10th Floor Conference Room, Boston.

Seminars & Workshops
Research Database Creation: Building a REDCap Database

Overview

Are you involved in building a REDCap database for your research project?

REDCap is an online application that can be used to create research databases. It has many advantages over Excel, and is often the preferred tool for database creation. Learn how to create REDCap databases for your research projects in this 90-minute Tufts CTSI workshop, Research Database Creation: Building a REDCap Database.

This session will begin with a lecture presented by Rachael Huebner, a Clinical Data Manager at Tufts CTSI, followed by a workshop in which participants will practice building a simple database in REDCap.

To attend this event, participants must attend the first workshop in this series, Research Database Creation: Basics & Best Practices.

After attending this event, you should be able to:

  • Describe the differences between classic and longitudinal projects, and identify when to use each
  • Create projects, forms, and fields in REDCap
  • Export data from REDCap to Excel

Details

Date: Tuesday, November 12, 2:00-3:30PM

Location: Tufts Medical Center, IS Training Room, Ziskind Building, 1st Floor, Room 114A

To attend this event, participants must attend the first workshop in this series, Research Database Creation: Basics & Best Practices.

Registration

This workshop is designed for research assistants, clinical research coordinators, investigators, residents, and fellows who will be creating or working with databases for research projects.

Space is limited. To reserve your seat, please register here by October 24.

Forum
Building Communities of Resilience: Substance Use Disorder

What does a community of resilience that supports people with substance use disorders (SUDs) look like, and how could we create it? Like other chronic diseases, SUDs can be managed, but not cured. Maintaining recovery can be a huge mental and physical task, and can be isolating.

Join us for this interactive discussion at a Museum of Science Forum about building communities of resilience around SUDs. Share your perspective as groups work together to create a community plan while learning about methods of prevention and recovery as well as considering a diverse range of values and ideas.

Featured speakers to be announced soon! Light refreshments will be provided.

This program was created in partnership with Tufts CTSI.
