Sign Up Now: Designing a Clinical Trial Workshop

To provide and practice a clear set of guidelines on how to develop a well-designed clinical trial.

March 18, 2014

Objective: This short workshop will provide a basic orientation to clinical trial concepts and resources that are needed to begin to design a clinical trial.  Such concepts will include:

  • types of research questions that can (and cannot) be addressed with clinical trials,
  • definition of the study population (inclusion and exclusion criteria),
  • identification and operationalization of trial outcomes,
  • sample size estimation and power considerations,
  • planning and resources available for data collection and management.  

The workshop will use lectures and break-out sessions allowing participants to apply concepts to their specific research question. We encourage participants to come with their own research questions to work through during class.

When & Where: Wednesday, April 02, 01:00 PM, USC UPC Leavey Library Auditorium Open To: Faculty and post-docs interested in evaluating research questions
