rush tuesday talks

rush tuesday talks are held every second tuesday of the month. the talks are conducted as a design studio so that participants can bring up their study and discuss any issue or barrier they are dealing with in terms of recruitment, retention or other such issues. the studios are co-working sessions and held in person in one of the rush conference rooms with whiteboard. due to covid-19, the tuesday talks are being conducted virtually over webex using a virtual whiteboard. the rush tuesday talks are supported by the institute for translational medicine (itm) at rush and office of research administration of rumc.

the purpose of the rush tuesday talks is to provide an open discussion platform to the research coordinators, administrative personnel, and principal investigators. the various stakeholders that participate, bring their rich perspectives to the discussion and help create nuanced understanding of the issues raised. the tuesday talks include not just the issues and barriers faced by study teams but also innovative methods used by the team to overcome those issues. this is peer to peer knowledge sharing of ideas and solutions is unique to this project.

the tuesday talks are summarized in a report that includes the topic, discussion, insights generated and the potential solutions or opportunity spaces for solving the issues. the idea is to capture any innovative methods and approaches and help speed up research projects through efficient teamwork. ora sponsors the lunches when the sessions are in person.

communication is sent out before each session and everyone is encouraged to share out the time and location of each session to have maximum attendance. the attendance has varied from less than 10 people to more than 30 people in a session.
