CTSI Distinguished Seminar Series
June 7, 2023
CTSI Distinguished Seminars feature important topics in clinical and translational science presented by outstanding, and sometimes world-renowned, speakers. Through the Seminar Series, UB's Clinical and Translational Science Institute is partnering with the five health sciences schools and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center to sponsor a round of visiting scholars in the forefront of their respective disciplines. The goal is to expose faculty, trainees and students to various pathways in clinical and translational research.
Implementation Science Workshop
Implementation science is the scientific study of methods and strategies that facilitate the uptake of evidence-based practice and research into regular use by practitioners and policymakers. The field of implementation science seeks to systematically close the gap between what we know and what we do (often referred to as the know-do gap) by identifying and addressing the barriers that slow or halt the uptake of proven health interventions and evidence based practices.
Interventions and evidence-based practices that are poorly implemented – or not implemented at all – do not produce expected health benefits. Even when effectively implemented, interventions and practice changes still might not produce expected health benefits if effectiveness is lost during implementation, or if the intervention or practice was never effective in the first place.
Scientific Communication Workshop Series
The Scientific Communication Workshop Series investigates methods to communicate clinical and translational research findings to different groups of individuals. Workshops will focus on working with institutional communication offices, translating the implications of research findings, effective communication, and commercialization of research findings.
Health Inequities Workshop Series
Thursdays, March-April 2023
The goals of the Health Inequities Workshop Series are to: (1) bridge the cultural and experience gap by providing health practitioners with the knowledge and skills needed to understand health inequities; (2) acquire the intercultural communication skills needed to become more culturally sensitive and empathetic health practitioners; (3) develop a fundamental understanding of the socio-economic causes of health inequities and how structural forces perpetuate them; and (4) imbue health practitioners with the desire and commitment to contribute to transforming the healthcare system to better serve Blacks and people of color. Each workshop will feature panel discussions, interactive breakout rooms, and question and answer sessions.
Responsible Conduct of Research Workshop Series, Spring 2023
The Responsible Conduct of Research Workshop Series prepares participants to integrate research ethics into the design, conduct, oversight and dissemination of research. Workshops will focus on the definition and scope of research misconduct, conflicts of interest, procedures to ensure ethical procedures are used with animals and human subjects, and criteria for determining authorship and responsible data management.
Explore the features available to VoiceThreaders with a full license. Participants will learn how to create groups and subgroups, set sharing permissions within those groups, and privately share VoiceThreads with individuals. Participants will also learn how to give private feedback, use threaded commenting, copy VoiceThreads for use with multiple groups, and use comment moderation to formatively assess student work.
