1 Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Directorate for Professional Education Department of Research Programs Introduction to Research at WRNMMC Marina Borovok, PhD Head of Research Education, Department of Research Programs, WRNMMC September 2011

2 Research Course2 2 Disclosure Statement : This CE/CME activity does not have commercial support, and has no conflicts of interest. 2011

3 Research Course3 3 Learning Objectives 1.Describe clinical research and the research process steps 2.Discus research at WRNMMC and its unique opportunities. 3. Know about research support available at WRNMMC. 4.Recognize IT tools that support research collaboration and communication from anywhere at any time. 2011

4 LO 1: Describe clinical research and the research process steps Before you start your research at WRNMMC, you need to do the following THREE steps: Step 1: Obtaining a DKO/AKO account Step 2: Registering with IRBNet, e-portal for publications and protocol submission. Step 3: Completion of CITI training 2011Research Course4

5 5 Research Cue Card 2011Research Course

6 Step 1: Obtaining a DKO/AKO account AKO/DKO platform for research purposes What is AKO? Army Knowledge Online (AKO) is the world's largest and secure electronic platform. AKO is currently serving over 2.26 million users. What is DKO? Defense Knowledge Online (DKO) is an information sharing network required by the Department of Defense to support secure access to information (portal). DKO is using AKO as a platform. 2011Research Course6

7 7 MANY Benefits of DKO 1. Universal in the.mil environment. 2. Virtual workspace (telework) any time especially in times of national disaster (Sept 11, Pandemic, etc) or exercises (example: DCO) 3. Virus and Spam scanning for over 3 Billion messages per year. 4. Provides access to over 2K free training courses via JKO, etc. 5. Use AKO/DKO credentials to access MyPay, Tricare Online and over 1,200 other DOD applications that use AKO/DKO SSO services. 6. If you have Internet access, you can access AKO/DKO securely from anywhere at any time 7. Centralized Helpdesk (open 24/7) supporting 2.26M users and over 1,200 DoD applications. 8. Use AKO/DKO Portal as a Virtual Thumb Drive ensuring files and folders needed are available regardless of location. 9. Social capabilities such as milSUITE allow you to find new people working on similar projects or with similar interests. 10. Communicate with anyone in DoD via IM, , video messaging. 11. Over 50K deployed US Armed Forces members use AKO/DKO while deployed to many places worldwide. 2011Research Course

8 AKO/DKO platform for research purposes The Defense Medical Research Network (DMRN) For better management of research processes, The Defense Medical Research Network (DMRN) was created. It is a DoD-wide web-based networking solution for all your research management, compliance and oversight needs. Located on AKO/DKO platform at: https://www.us.army.mil/suite/page/596540https://www.us.army.mil/suite/page/ IRBNet IRBNet is the industry leading software, a robust set of electronic tools supporting the management, submission, review and oversight of our research protocols. IRBNet entry is available through DMRN page that located on AKO/DKO site. 2011Research Course8

9 Step 1: Obtaining a DKO/AKO account Go to the Defense Medical Research Network (DMRN)page on DKO/AKO website at https://www.us.army.mil/suite/page/ https://www.us.army.mil/suite/page/ Cue Card Reference: 2011Research Course9

12 Step 1: Obtaining a DKO/AKO account (cont.) Research Course12 Instructions are at the RCRS website https://nnmcintra/SiteDirectory/RCRS/IRBNet/Forms/AllItems.aspxhttps://nnmcintra/SiteDirectory/RCRS/IRBNet/Forms/AllItems.aspx. Questions? Contact Ms. Dale Gregory

13 Step 2: Registering with IRBNet, e-portal for publications and protocol submission. Cue Card Reference: Instructions are at the RCRS website https://nnmcintra/SiteDirectory/RCRS/IRBNet/Forms/AllItems.aspxhttps://nnmcintra/SiteDirectory/RCRS/IRBNet/Forms/AllItems.aspx. 2011Research Course13

14 Step 2: Registering with IRBNet, e-portal for publications and protocol submission (cont.) Questions? Please contact Mr. Luis Calvo at Research Course14

15 Step 3: Completion of CITI training Cue Card Reference: Principal Investigators, Associate Investigators, Research Staff, as well as anyone coming into contact with Human Subjects or involved with the consent process or study design are required to complete this course. Research Course152011

16 Step 3: Completion of CITI training The course is available at https://www.citiprogram.org https://www.citiprogram.org First Time Users need to register at https://www.citiprogram.org/enroll/courseregistration1.asp?language=englishhttps://www.citiprogram.org/enroll/courseregistration1.asp?language=english. Questions? Contact Dr. Marina Borovok Research Course162011

17 Now you are done with the registrations and training. What is next? Research Course172011

18 Next steps: 4-5 The entire research writing process can be divided into easily manageable and clear steps: STEP 4: Develop a Research Question Select a topic Discuss Research Ideas Find Sources to support your ideas STEP 5: Submit your proposal via Proposal Approval Funding (if needed) 18Research Course

19 Step 4: Develop Research Question Good research question: could the "FINER" criteria be applied to it? F- Feasible. Is the question answerable? Do you have access to all the materials you will need to do the study? Do you have access to enough subjects? Will you have enough time and money? Do you have the expertise to do this study or can you collaborate with someone who does? I- Interesting. The question has to be interesting to the investigator, but should also be interesting to others. N- Novel. Has this study been done before? Does it add to the current body of medical knowledge? E- Ethical. Risk/benefit ratio? Can the study be done with a minimal risk? Will an IRB approve the study? R- Relevant. Will it further medical science? Will the results change clinical practice, health policy or point towards further avenues of research? If your question fails on any one of these 5 criteria, it is probably not worth putting much effort into.
