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.
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.
