DuBois, David. (2017, Jan. 18) Strategies for High-Impact Publishing [PDF of PowerPoint slides]. Institute for Health Research and Policy, University of Illinois at Chicago.

This new series for the IHRP community featured informal presentations and discussion regarding the full range topics that are important for professional development, especially as relates to research (e.g., professional time management, proposal writing, IRB considerations, developing data management and sharing plans, research project development, publishing, etc.). Along with providing valuable opportunities for professional development, the session offered a forum for sharing and networking among members... more

Anderson, Emily E. (2016, June 21). Revisions to the Common Rule: What to Expect and How to Prepare [PDF of PowerPoint slides]. Institute for Health Research and Policy, University of Illinois at Chicago.

Emily E. Anderson, PhD, MPH, of Loyola University reviewed the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for Revisions to the Common Rule (NPRM) that was issued by the Office of Human Research Protections in September 2015. She discussed the rulemaking timeline, the substance of proposed changes, and the presenter’s critique of proposed changes.

Pugach, Oksana. (2016, Feb. 9). What You Need to Know about Power Analysis through Simulation. Institute for Health Research and Policy, University of Illinois at Chicago.

In some settings analytic power calculations may not be readily available. Moreover, in situations of complex study design such as longitudinal cluster-randomized clinical trials with non-continuous outcomes, there are no analytic formulae that would adequately capture data specifics. A straightforward alternative is to estimate power empirically via Monte Carlo simulation. In this Chalk Talk, Dr. Pugach discussed the effect on power of changing various simulation conditions controlled by the researcher.
