Describe current understanding of the effectiveness of ‘audit and feedback’ and identify opportunities for improvement based on recent research
Recognize strength and weaknesses of survey based research and learn strategies to optimize your survey tool
Analyze different strategies for the use of registries in clinical research and as an alternative to randomized control trials
Description: This session is intended to explore the advantages of using audits, surveys and registries as research tools. Audits and surveys have become an excellent tool to assess and review practices and explore new topics to inform possible research questions. Registries have been useful for research questions that cannot be answered by complex, expensive and time consuming clinical trials. Properly designed audits, surveys and registries can collect information, describe practices, and identify trends and safety profiles. In particular, we will discuss the development and evaluation of enhanced audit and feedback interventions to increase the use of evidence-based transfusion practice (AFFINITIE Programme). We will also discuss the successful use of surveys in clinical research, including the support of using universal group A plasma. And lastly, we will describe the use of national and international registries to study infrequent procedures and rare diseases.
