Past Advanced Methods Journal Club events


Thursday, September 21

12:00 pm- 1:00 pm

Room 375

George D. Papandonatos,  PhD          

Associate Professor of Biostatistics (Research)                                 

Lecture Title: Systematic Review and Meta Analyses on the FTO Genotype and Weight Loss

Description: FTO genotype and weight loss: systematic review and meta-analysis of 9563 individual participant data from eight randomised controlled trials.

Summary data was extracted from randomised controlled trials in overweight or obese adults reporting reduction in body mass index, body weight, or waist circumference by FTO genotype (rs9939609 or a proxy) after dietary, physical activity, or drug based interventions. Gene by treatment interaction models were fitted to individual participant data from all studies included in this review, using allele dose coding for genetic effects and a common set of covariates. Study level interactions were combined using random effect models. Metaregression and subgroup analysis were used to assess sources of study heterogeneity.

Thursday, July 20

12:00 pm- 1:00 pm

Room 375

Stacey Springs,  PhD        

Investigator in Health Services, Policy and Practice                                            

Lecture Title: “I know better than academic researchers how to care for my patients": An Exploration of the Evidence-Based Practice Attitude Scale 

Description: Understanding how clinicians perceive and incorporate evidence into practice is an important implementation concern for evidence synthesis researchers. During this session, we will review and critique two papers that describe efforts to measure clinician preference for evidence based practice in healthcare. Aarons et al represents a survey tool that has been validated and widely used and McEvoy et al developed a tool focused on transdisciplinary health care teams, which has been tested, but not as widely disseminated as Aarons. 

 
The objective of this session is to discuss the tools, in terms of objectives, domains and questions, from the unique perspective of our group. Prior to the session next week, please read through the 2 papers and surveys attached. To make this interactive, please take the survey:

 Data will be aggregated and presented in the journal club, so please participate (even if you cannot make the session). Those who participate will have an opportunity to win a gift card to a local coffee establishment in a nominal amount.
