Project Details


The Primary Care Research Methods and Statistics Conference was established
in order to enhance the skills of primary care researchers. In particular,
two long-term objectives have been to develop basic research skills among
novice researchers, and to expand the repertoire of methodologies for
experienced researchers. Several specific knowledge and skill areas are
being developed, including quantitative research methods, statistics, use
of computers, writing skills, and medical outcomes research. In addition
to these overall goals, the 1991 conference has several specific aims. One
is to better-target novice researchers by designating a specific novice
researcher conference track, in addition to a Basic Research Planning
Seminar. Another specific aim is to develop a track devoted to qualitative
methodology, making use of the expertise of Ben Crabtree Ph.D. and Sandra
Burge Ph.D. The third specific aim for this year's conference is to set
"Medical Effectiveness Research" as the theme, building on last year's
theme "Measures of Outcome." The conference design is built upon four concurrent sessions or tracks,
each devoted to a particular research area (e.g., computers, statistics,
etc.). As noted earlier, specific tracks are planned for medical
effectiveness research, qualitative methodology, and novice researcher
skills. In addition to the concurrent sessions, plenary sessions will
gather all participants. one of this year's Plenary Speakers is George
Lundberg M.D., Editor of JAMA, who will speak on Also, workshops are planned, focusing on medical effectiveness research,
qualitative methods, and quantitative methods. Finally, breakfast sessions are designed to maximize participant
interaction. Two sessions are planned: one devoted for common interest tables, another a
panel discussion of research career planning.
