This Clinical Update in Research Methods for the General Internist was originally delivered on May 11, 2023 at the SGIM23 Annual Meeting in Denver.

Generalists must stay abreast of novel research methods to understand, generate, and utilize the most important research findings and to provide the highest quality of care to patients.  Being well-informed of cutting-edge research methods allows generalist researchers to conduct innovative and influential research and to critically appraise research methods to select the most appropriate methods to answer a research question.  Innovation and methodologic rigor are also major criteria for successful NIH and foundation research grant applications.  Thus, it is imperative for generalist researchers to stay current on innovative research methods to remain competitive in a challenging funding milieu.

The SGIM Research Committe has critically reviewed and selected six of the most important peer-reviewed papers published in the past two years.  We have used a modified Delphi process and had extensive discussion and selection of the top six papers to present.  Presenters summarize findings, methods, strengths and limitations on each method and tips on how to apply.
