Exercise and Motivation Study at Bentley University

Friday, July 1, 2011

By CB Loeb
Contributor

Do you want to exercise more?

I am doing a research study for graduate school on what motivates people to go to the gym. Can you give me five minutes of your time? I've enclosed a link to a super-brief survey and would very much like your input. Even if you don't think this is the right study for you, I would be most obliged if you would forward this link on to anyone you think might be willing to participate.

The study is comprised of two parts: the survey and a focus group. For those kind folks who would like to join the focus group, you will have the opportunity to sign up as part of the survey. If you are not interested, or do not live in Massachusetts, this is fine. Your completion of the survey would be of great value all on its own.

Gratefully yours,

NEDG BIOCOMPATIBILITY ROUND TABLE

This message is being sent as a benefit of your ASQ Biomedical Division affiliation and/or attendance at NEDG functions

 

BIOCOMPATIBILITY ROUND TABLE

Practical Applications and Issues

 

For example … How does one know:

 

  • ? ISO 10993-1… EN ISO version? FDA’s version? AAMI/ISO version?
  • ? How do regulators (FDA, CE, others) determine if your testing is adequate?
  • ? When do you NOT need to test for biocompatibility?
  • ? To evaluate Materials? Finished Devices? pre/post sterilization or aging?
  • ? How to choose a lab for testing? … and how to prevent pitfalls?
  • ? If a protocol and test plan are needed?
  • ? When GLP testing (vs. non-GLP testing) is required? recommended?
  • ? How/when to use existing data?

The meeting will begin with an overview of practices and challenges in biocompatibility assessment.  On the surface it sounds simple: “call a test lab and they tell you what to do”, or “just use the table in ISO 10993-1”. But it is not … success is usually assumed and errors have resulted in painful effects on patients, companies, projects and careersYou will be an active participant in a facilitated discussion and come prepared to share your experiences, successes, and concerns. 

This opportunity to learn and share information will take place on October 23, 2014 at the Waltham Woods Conference Center, 860 Winter St. Waltham, MA 02451.   GPS will not get you there; use: http://www.conferencecenteratwalthamwoods.com/location

Check in is from 5:30-6:00 PM, dinner from 6:00 - 6:45 PM, the meeting will follow, and it will end no later than 9:00 PM. 

Participation is limited to 30 attendees so register early and reserve a place.

 

Limited Registration and on first come, first serve basis to 30 participants. Register early!

CoP In-person, Buyers Only: Determining, Discussing & Measuring Value (Boston)

This session is for information managers (buyers).

Are you facing increasing demands to demonstrate the ROI of content investments, yet struggling to find the right metrics... or even the vocabulary with which to discuss "value" with stakeholders?

This hands-on session will break down this complex topic into manageable pieces and provide you with practical tools for:

  • Define the Terms: What do stakeholders in your organization mean by "value"?
  • Stakeholder Engagement: How do you develop and foster meaningful discussions with busy stakeholders?
  • Collection Analysis: Can you organize your collection by content type or vendor, and then develop specific measures for those subsets? 
  • Adapt the Process: Apply these same tools and approaches to the cost of staff time and making the business case for new expenditures.

Whether you rely on a full suite of premium products or operate a "DIY" shop, this session will provide you with a wide range of tools and ideas with which to manage and report on value more effectively.

Agile & Scrum Fundamentals 1-Day Training from FreeStandingAgility.com - August
This one-day class is designed to provide you with a rapid foundation in the values, benefits, and practices of Agile and Scrum. After completing this class, you'll have a solid understanding of what "doing Agile" or "adopting Scrum" really means and be ready to move forward with Scrum in your organization. If you already do Scrum and need to spin up more teams or on-board new employees quickly, this is the class for you. Here's a quick list of the topics the class covers: - Comparing traditional approaches and Agile approaches - Conducting iterative planning and development with Scrum, Kanban, and XP - Understanding the roles, events, artifacts, and rules of Scrum - Creating, ordering, and grooming the product backlog - Writing, slicing, and sizing user stories - Working with a Definition of Ready (DoR) and a Definition of Done (DoD) - Planning and tracking releases and sprints - Visualizing progress with taskboards, burndowns, and burnups - Estimating with teams using planning poker and affinity techniques - Understanding team velocity and role metrics - Conducting effective standups, sprint planning, sprint reviews, and retrospectives Why a one-day class? It's simple. The goal is to impart the essentials of Agile and Scrum to each participant in the shortest amount of time using an active classroom with simulations and interactive team learning exercises. Who should attend? With rich, useful content, a single day commitment, and a low price, the class is great for both individuals and teams. Individuals quickly gain the knowledge they need to broaden their skills and make themselves more marketable. Who can't spare a day for that. As for teams, the class delivers even more value by making it easy to afford sending team members together and compounding the learning they bring back to their companies. Compare that to sending a single person to a two-day class for $1500 and hoping that they'll be able to share what they learned to others. Still need convincing? Read what some students have said. "The class was one of the most engaging and cost-effective classes I've taken in 25+ years of work." - Irwin Schreiman, PerkinElmer "WOW!" - Chuck Miksis, Motorola Mobility/ARRIS "Awesome Class!" - Stanley Ivas "Best in Boston to learn Agile/Scrum." - Kanda Alagappan "I can use these principles & practices to take charge of my day today." - Heather Mardis, Motorola Mobility/ARRIS "Very valuable and enjoyable." - Larry Antonuk, Markem-Imaje "Very informative, engaging, and a definite 'go to' for starting or improving agile in your company." - Abhinay Pujari, GMO "Well done. The experience of the instructors is great." - Mike Dunbar, Conexant "If you are planning to or are employing Agile methodology, this class should be required." - Mark Ayasee, VFA Inc.

"Great crash course in agile methodologies." - Jill Nickerson, AlixPartners "It's a great introductory class for understanding the fundamentals of Scrum." - Chandra Kollipara, BA Insight "Definitely worth every penny + would absolutely recommend!" - Colleen Schwartz, AlixPartners "Agile ASAP is a great one day introduction to Agile and Scrum. The teachers are among the best in the world. I brought my entire team with me, and they left excited and ready to bring it to work the next day. I will send more teams to this class, and I'll bring the teachers into my company for on-site training. Don't miss it!" - Richard Kasperowski, Nokia Class Time: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Class Day Travel Trip: Traffic on I-95/128 is a wildcard and can be "unpleasant" before class time. The best idea is leave early and target getting to classroom between 8:30-8:45. Dress Code: The dress code for the class is casual. Come comfortable and ready to engage in learning. Lunch: A box lunch will be provided. Instructors: The course instructors are from FreeStanding Agility, a team of Agile educators, trainers, and coaches with over 12 years of combined experience, coaching and/or training Agile teams in over 100 different organizations.

Healthcare Analytics - The ROI Conundrum

The United States (US) healthcare industry is evolving its use of healthcare data, including data collection (EMR/EHR), data sharing (via health information exchanges) and data analysis.  There are industry champions pioneering frameworks, such as HIMSS EMRAM, in the hope of accelerating healthcare industry standards in the overlapping world of EMR/EHR and analytics.

Given that EMR/EHR deployments have limited ROI by themselves, but require an investment to allow the healthcare industry to achieve the value and well-documented ROI available from data analytics, where are we today?  Is it true that the healthcare industry must commit, culturally, to become a data-driven culture, incented economically to support optimum health at the lowest cost?  Will healthcare industry CFOs and other C-level executives be capable of managing both quality and cost, understanding the interplay between the two?
