Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Institutional Development Awards for Clinical and Translational Research (IDeA-CTR) networks, funded by NIH/NIGMS, aim to advance CTR infrastructure to address historically unmet state and regional health needs. Success depends on the response to actionable feedback to IDeA-CTR leadership from network partners and governance groups through annual surveys, interviews, and governance body recommendations. The Great Plains IDeA-CTR applied internal formative meta-evaluation to evaluate dispositions of 172 governance recommendations from 2017 to 2021. Results provided insights to improve the classification and quality of recommendations, credibility of evaluation processes, responsiveness to recommendations, and communications and governance in a complex CTR network comprising multiple coalitions.
