settingPediatric residency programs participating in APA Continuity Research Network (CORNET), a network comprised of 123 pediatric residency programs across the United States and representing more than 6000 trainees providing care for over 1 million pediatric patients.
methodsThis study was a collaboration between ROR and the Academic Pediatric Association's Continuity Research Network. Participants completed an anonymous online survey to evaluate Literacy Promotion activities and training, and were asked “What has been the most meaningful experience you have encountered with using ROR?” and “Is there anything else you would like to add?” Responses were evaluated by researchers and 4 themes were generated through discussion. All responses were divided and coded by researchers working in pairs and subsequently by all researchers until consensus was reached. Data were organized into themes.
sample sizen=473 (faculty and 1216 residents); n=42 (residency programs represented)
Measure of Training and Experience: survey about participant and site demographics, LP training, the perceived influence of various training modalities on practice, adherence to the ROR model, other ROR experiences, perceptions regarding early literacy efforts, and knowledge regarding ROR, including two open ended survey questions:
- “What has been the most meaningful experience you have encountered with using Reach Out and Read?”
- “Is there anything else you would like to add?”
