AOTF STRIDE Webinar #2: Developing a Research Proposal - Process and Ethics to Promote Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity - Shared screen with speaker view
Pamela Talero (she/her)
Good afternoon/evening to all! Very excited to be here :)
Andrea Muffly (she/her)
Hi everyone!!
Teal Benevides
The process is very rich! I agree, Erna! So much to learn along the way that you may not know when you start out.
Teal Benevides
Ivy points out regulatory discussions that are needed and which she is involved with that are happening about compensation at the HHS level: https://www.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/oew-program-book-2022.pdf
Vikram Pagpatan
Thank you for a wonderful and informative webinar presentation. Question- how do you approach “diverse” sample populations for research engagement without offending or stereotyping those communities who may not believe they are actually “diverse” or opt to not buy into the concept of diversity?
Amanda Ruiz (student)
What is your preferred sequence of implementing the results of a study back into a community? Do you typically take the results to an organization or do you publish the results and hope people come to you?
Karen Park
Thank you all for your wonderful insights!! I wanted to ask about establishing and acknowledging positionality in research. How do we best approach in research as an outsider or even insider with possible assumptions about the population. Do we need to be more explicit about positionality in our research and publications?
Douglene Jackson
we've heard a lot about the community as participations. can you speak towards emancipatory approaches/experiences that situate research in and empower communities?
Jenny Whittaker (she/her)
Ivy and Lenin both referenced being reflective and intentional about paying research participants. Can you speak a bit more about how to balance ensuring that payment is equivalent to expertise and time shared v. reducing the risk of payment being coercive
Teal Benevides
My question is for Ivy. Many administrators (e.g. legal) have a protection perspective from the system level that often marginalize communities because the policies are one-size fits all-- and researchers are taking a protection or collaborative perspective of the individual. How do you recommend reconciling these perspectives which conflict in order to support ongoing conversations for meaningful engagement of community partners as team members?
Vikram Pagpatan
Thank you
Teal Benevides
I love this conversation. It would be wonderful if AOTF's journal could have a companion dissemination approach that aims to share with the impacted stakeholders. Maybe videos about what was learned in Plain Language. Or other ideas?
Andrea Muffly (she/her)
Do cultural brokers work for other less visible communities? For example, an an invisible disability/chronic illness community, or LGBTQ community members. I feel like the examples I have seen with brokers are more language based and was wondering if this concept would translate or appear token like?
Amanda Ruiz (student)
Thank you!
Amiya Waldman-Levi
Some of the IRB regulations regarding confidentiality and privacy may conflict or prevent sharing results with participants. Any thoughts?
Bonnie Kennedy
Iyv's comments about presenting results to communities made me think about asking participants after hearing the results: what should the next research focus be? what did we miss? what is needed next?
Sarah Doerrer
I am a new researcher and have just created a research team at my University. What are ways to convince data collectors that we should include non english speakers? It does require more work for the data collector ie. scheduling translators. My inclination is to create more of a rapport with the team and to work towards more funding so that we can have more support. One other comment I have regarding mixed methods. I have been asked by doctoral students why you can’t do mixed studies and pull it apart to get more publications. I have published a mixed study and we should really stress in the field of OT the importance of producing these types of studies because they are very important in understanding the topics we study.
Kristin AOTF
Our OTJR publisher SAGE has launched Plain Language Summaries on the SAGE Author Gateway, which provides guidance to authors on how to address a non-researcher audience within their article. It’s also launched a Patient Accessible Research Microsite. The site contains free to access articles with plain language summaries, video abstracts, infographics, and patient perspective papers from journals across SAGE. We’ll include links in a follow up email.
Douglene Jackson
We need to be mindful also that many programs are new and recognize our roles in continuing to perpetuate research and OT from a colonialized lens. We know better and should do better in order for our profession and scholarship to evolve.
Cristina Smith
o What action steps can you use to develop various research proposal processes & ethical considerations to promote Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity?o What are some case examples of your research proposal processes & ethical considerations which promoted or could have better promoted Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity?o What strategies can you apply to integrate Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity into current and/or future research proposal aims, objectives, and outcomes?

Mariana D'Amico
thank you this was very thought provoking and enlightening
Jennifer Capelle
Re: Dissemination - Our lab is working to use Easy Read Summaries with anything that is published from our lab and making those summaries available on our website and social media pages.
Megan Edwards Collins
Love that idea Jennifer!
Douglene Jackson
Plain language abstract is also another strategy. I submitted a publication and that was a requirement, with us having to put it through a lexile checker.
