Evaluation data driven improvements in a supplement research program

The Clinical and Translational Pilot Project Program (PPP) of the Puerto Rico Clinical and Translational Research Consortium (PRCTRC) has been successful in supporting a growing number of skilled and promising researchers with an emphasis on developing clinical and translational research.

The PRCTRC Evaluation Core (EC) has been instrumental in providing PRCTRC leadership with critical information that has resulted in improvements to the pilot program through the implementation of new strategies. Evaluation efforts included mixed-methods approaches and incorporated process and outcome measures that assessed project progress, mentoring and career development experiences, impact, and research needs. The EC worked alongside the leadership in producing information that supports continuous program improvement of a supplement program directed at addressing health disparities in a Hispanic population.
